I buy a new generator every year, (cause I want too) and have had about every brand you can name, including Honda.

Now, I have a Champion 3100 with remote start, and it's way the best I've owned so far. Starting it from inside the Jayco TT is just fantastic.

Champion 3100 with remote start - Model # 75537i

@bluegill... why are inverter generators quieter?
The noise, surely, comes from the engine...

Or are inverter generators just more modern and efficiently designed?

I also have a Champion and love it, quiet and much cheaper than Honda or Yamaha. I've had it for four years now and no problems.

I bought the Honda eu 3000is. Found out in short order that I am not a young man anymore and itís tough to pick this thing up I looked on eBay and found a tundra tire wheel kit for it. Now I am able to push it around and up a ramp to the bed of my pickup and occasionally sit on it and ride it just for kicks
