I think that's what I;m going to go with
Do a little research on your own, don't do it on my say-so. I'm an idiot who just tosses out ideas.
I found that setup on an RV forum before you posted about it and liked it.
There ya go. A camper is like a hotel room in Paris. Only needs to be big enough to crash in.
My Casita offers me that plus a head. I'm spoiled.
Good looking dog.
I had visions of going with two 2000i's, but wanted something to run my well pump, apparently I need 220V.
All is well then.
With that set up and a Jeep CJ I'm thinking 10mpg
Don't know what a CJ gets otherwise, but that's a really light aerodynamic trailer. Only about 1300#. I doubt it reduces mileage more than 3-4 mpg.
Then that would be about 10
I've had three CJ's over the years and they are not known for good MPG.
Not surprised. That's a "don't ask" question then...
look at the comparable Yamaha... it has some features that make it a little better IMHO
it has a fuel gauge, and the petcock can be turned off and let the genny run dry so you dont leave fuel in the bowl. I believe it also has a slightly longer warranty. Look at the specs as well I think it has a slightly higher surge rating. Also depending where you are they can be slightly cheaper.
Neither are bad machines however...
Those are all good features and if you're only considering the 2000, I might go with Yamaha too. I don't think they have a way to run two in series though, if that's an option you're interested in. I bought the Honda thinking I might possibly want to do the two in series thing down the road but I never have needed that.
I've heard nothing but good things about them both.
We have dual Honda EU2000i with the parallel cable, they work great and they have a reputation of being more quiet than other brands.
I think the Yamaha has a kit that allows you to run two together as well... They are both incredible machines but after a lot of research I have decided to get the Yamaha when I get the money saved up. A plus for me however is my local MC shop sells and services the Yamaha which for me was another check in the Yamaha column.
I dont think however you would be displeased with either...
Interesting to hear. I have a friend who bought the Yamaha and she wanted to trade me for my Honda because she didn't know there was a way to run them in series. I'll have to tell her to check into that.
I agree, they are both rock solid machines.
Impossible. Even a Jeep can't manage 0 mpg.
(owned '78, '79, and '85 CJ-7s.)
hmm my 2.5 cj7 got 17. I was pretty happy with that..
of course... you did not try to haul anything with it..
