This week I'm sharing our experience over one full camping season with this generator. We've been very happy with it thus far, especially the remote start capability.

I'm sold on a Champ. I've had mine for 3 years now with no issues other than routine maintenance.

Sure beat the price of the red one.

I actually got that one for a steal. Now the price online ranges from $800-1100. I bought it through Walmart.com for $795. The 2 weeks later, Amazon made a pricing mistake for 1 day and had it listed at $595, which is below cost. While that $595 price was up I contacted Walmart and got them to refund me the difference on a price match. [emoticon] The very next day Amazon was back up to $900.

Still cheaper than the red one. or the blue one, but I'm color blind anyway.[emoticon]

I ordered a 3500w with remote (not the dual fuel) this morning $999.99 from Cabelas asked CW if they price match they said no so bought it online at cabelas. Another note Champion considers anything above 3500' high altitude so I called and they are sending me a new jet for altitude FREE.

That's a good price for the 3500W with remote. Champion sent me the free high altitude jet, and it was quite simple to replace. However, one piece of advice: remove things very carefully. When removing the carb you'll be detaching hoses that go to the charcoal canister and a bunch of other things. When putting mine back together there was a small clear hose that looked all the world like a fuel line, but I couldn't figure out what the other end attached to. I started wigging out; it was the weekend and I couldn't call Champion, so I turned to online forums like this one. It turned out that it went to absolutely nothing. [emoticon]
