I'm buying one of these new gens as soon as it's available.


I might also,it sure has my attention..One of the slickest setups I have ever seen was down on the Salmon river where Snowbirds stop for a week or two on there journey home..A guy had a Class C without a gen pulling a car trailer equipped with an Onan mounted on the front with outlets installed.He had it silenced and with a long exhaust..I really liked the way he did it and it was kinda quiet..

I would like to do the same to my ATV trailer and this new Onan looks like the ticket!

Onan also makes excelent RV diesel generators. (Kubota engine)
I got excited seeing them, till I got sticker shock.

Read the specs...says it comes in gas and LP models....gas = 2.8Kw...LP = 2.5Kw..


Isn't the 2.5kw LP the same one that's been around for years and the new 2.8kw gas a completely new generator?

Yep, according to what I can find.

The new design is only Gas at this point. The details in the original post list QC and CQ - both of those model designations are wrong. The gasser model is a QG2800i

The previous models were Gas = 2800 watts, LP= 2500 watts.

No details on the LP model yet.

If you look at the spec sheet found here:

Onan spec sheet

It sure looks like the propane model is an inverter generator model similar to the gas model except it is 2.5 kw instead of 2.8. Not surprising as propane has less energy.
