95 and humidity I will have utility hookups and no generator running and will be very happy.

Grid goes down? Not going to carry a generator for that. Don't have one for my home either.

$10,000? You overpaid.


If you don't camp much, that's a viable option. It may only be every 5yrs that you have the power go out...an acceptable compromise.

If you camp a lot, having the ability to power the rig is really nice.

Example: we were in south texas last winter when they had their big ice storm...We got stuck for 3 days without power. It was overcast, so the solar wasn't putting out much. Without the generator, the furnace would have been out of commission.

Price us up a solar package including mounts and other upgrades taking into account RV payload and other considerations and tell us if it comes in below $10k professionally installed.

In June of 2015, I bought a small toy hauler/camper and planned to boon-dock some when traveling and/or hunting. I started looking at generator options and I found the generators for travel trailers from Honda. It allows me to enjoy all the luxuries of home at any camping site. It produces 2800 watts of clean and fuel-efficient power and is capable of simultaneously powering all the essential appliances. This Honda Inverter Gas model EG2800IA weighs just thirty-four pounds. It has a compact design with handles for easy lifting. Therefore, you can move it by yourself without much hassle.

According to Honda's website, the weight is 67.5#, not 34#. Also, it is rated at 62 to 67db, a LOT louder than the 48 to 52db that the Honda EU2200i is rated. That is what is considered a "construction generator."

The OP responded on page 2 about the generator he decided on. And the argument about the pros and cons of solar goes on for another 6 pages.

That's funny!
