Boily generators??

I am ready to buy a generator but want to hear from someone who has been using a Boily for a reasonable time. Need to know it's reliability! I like the price for the 3600 but can't decide to buy two Honda's or Boily. Anyone help me make up my mind!

Just has this discussion a while back. Check out this thread, http://www.forestriverforums.com/for...tor-10691.html

Might also do a search for generator and see what comes up. Popular topic.

I don't have personal experience with the Boliy, but it does have a good reputation. You can get a pair of factory reconditioned 2000 watt Champions and the parallel kit for $879 (2) 73531i Champion 2000w Inverters Generator Manufacturer Refurbished Kit 896682735312 | eBay

I have that setup and am very happy with it. They have the same low noise level as the Honda.

I love my Boliy-----------

I love my Boliy generator. Ziggy's video tells it all. We purchased at the same time. My purchase was $980.00 shipped from Ca to FL. At 68 lbs dry it is hard to beat. I can run my 15K btu a/c, all at the same time. Even plugged in the hair dryer just to see if it would handle the load, no problem.

The boliy come with a gas tank that will run about 4 1/2 hours under full load. I modified my Boliy by adding a fuel pump, connections for the gas connection from the 3 1/2 gal gas outboard tank that will run it for about 12 hours under full load. The gas tank mod is a big plus, very simple to do.
Or you can purchase the kit from a place here in Florida. But I put my own kit together for about $75.00 which includes the 3 1/2 gallon gas tank. It fits nicely in to the storage compartment of my Rockwood 8285 WS. Or I can haul it between the hitch and the front of the truck bed. I also installed security rings (2) to the back of the generator to run a cable through for locking security when stored outside.

For about $10.00 more you can get electric start which adds about 15 more pounds to the weight of the Boliy.

For info about the higher fuel capacity mod you can PM me.
