I bought the Ryobi RYI2200 a few weeks ago. Haven't used it in earnest so I can't I give it a thumbs up or down but did take it for a short test ride and it seems to work well. Came in at about 50% the cost of the Honda eu2000. We're mainly full hookup folks we plan on using it for emergencies mostly.

This issue has been sliced and diced a thousand times. Think it comes down to what you're willing to spend for reliable quiet power that is easy to transport, easy to use and easy to store. A lower cost alternative to the honda or Yam may get it done for you if all you're doing is charging up your batteries each day and you mostly camp by yourself. I resisted for years but finally gave in and spent the $$. Now have 2 hondas which is more than I need 95% of the time but gives me the flexibility and function that if I need it, I have it.

In the end, there is no right answer for everyone. For that reason I won't try to push my opinion on everyone on here. Its been said before [by me and others] there are situations where you get what you pay for. This is one of them.

One area of concern after looking at some online was the optional wheel kits for pulling the generator into place with a handle. The wheels looked small to the extent they might not roll well through gravel or loose dirt. I would consider another (possibly homemade dolly) arrangement with larger wheels.
Say, "OnTheGo", did you ever purchase that generator? Just wondering cuz your post has been going on now for almost a full year
