Honda generators are quiet ..but not whisper quiet like an expensive diesel gen set. They are closer to 10db and ten grand.

Use Yamaha 2400 Watt Generator EF2400ISHC, it runs my AC with everything else turned off, it is fairly quiet, usually leave it behind the trailer running while dry camping , forget it is there, don't get any Chinese knock offs of Yamaha or Honda , they are much cheaper and look like very good deal, but they are extremely unreliable , some people give them good reviews, but those are the once who only used them sparingly, need to get a brand name generator for a continuous use , go to Amazon and read reviews, you get the picture

I am looking at generators also, thinking of the Honda eu3000i. or two honda eu2000i. I am leaning towards the 3000 as I won't have to maintain two engines and I still have plenty of time to worry about how I am going to move it because of age. I also wonder if you have two 2000's are they twice as loud as one? might be a stupid question but have never heard two run together. But my guess is two would be louder

I use a 3000 watt Yamaha because it is the same height as my p/u bed edge and can be covered easily. An equal Honda sticks up 3 or 4" higher. Mine used about 2.5 gals in 8 hrs.

We have both the Honda 3000 and a Champion 2000. The Honda is definitely the quieter of the two. There is nothing wrong with the Champion but those that say that Champions are just as good at half the price haven't really had a one on one comparison. At idle both are very quiet although the Champion has a little higher pitch sound. At full power the difference is most obvious. The Honda doesn't rev up as much or have as high a pitch. This is not knocking Champion!! They are a good quality chinese built generator. The biggest drawback to the Honda is the weight. At 134 lb., its not something that you want to have to move often. We leave it permanently attached to our rear rack on our 5th wheel.
