    Honda 2000i or Predator Generators?

    I have not purchased yet, but I am going with a set of the Honda 2000i units. I have found two sets for sale locally (within 60 miles) that are low hours and a little cheaper than new one's cost.

    Honda 2000i or Predator Generators?

    Thank you all for the responses. This is what is so good about escapees the people are willing to share their knowledge and experiences.
  3. I have sold off my MH and toad and we are in the process of purchasing a truck & 5th wheel trailer. I want to purchase one or two small generators for the times we boondock. Anybody have an opinion of the Honda 2000i vs the Harbor Freight Predator 2000. Their specs are very similar. I've owned the Honda 2000i generators previously, but the $450 each price for the Predator vs $1000 for the Honda 2000i is appealing. Open to comments and opinions.
  4. These items have been sold...

    Proper Towing Vehicle for 22' Travel Trailer

    Also keep in mind where do you plan on going? To California to visit Disneyland? Gasoline is close to $4.00 a gallon in California and diesel is approaching $5.00 a gallon. You said your TT is a 1982? You will find many campgrounds that will restrict the age of your RV (10 year rule), state and federal parks do not.

    HELP! Travel Trailers...which one

    Yes do lots of looking. If you go to a TT that is 33 plus then you will find models with a closet and chest of drawers in the bedroom. Our last TT was a 2011 Keystone 30 footer and that was my wife's biggest complaint lack of storage space for clothes on a trip. Also if you can find a TT that is a year old or so you will save a ton of money over a new one.

    UK couple travelling America in rv top tips

    $5K will get you some kind of Class C MH, but you better plan on having enough $$$ to handle the repairs on it as you go around the country. As to where to shop to buy one, Arizona is always good.

    First time RV buyer

    To Farmer, I would say try to find a "near" new, but used MH, that initial depreciation hit is BAD! The license tags on my 2 year old MH was $1100. this past June. To OldMan, yes your $20K will go a lot farther buying a travel trailer. And again it depends on where you want to travel. There are many campgrounds around the country that do have 10 year rules, meaning if your RV is more than 10 years old they do not want you.

    Rv type campgrounds in British Columbia

    We are looking at going to Lake Louise/Banff in British Columbia and wondering what RV parks are near there. Last time we were there we stayed near Calgary which was quite a drive away.

    5er toy hauler or DP & Trailer?

    You talk about going to National/State Parks. Most that I have been to usually have a 30 foot max for RV's. We have found it easier to park in a RV park or as a Elk going to a local Elks lodge and then using our toad for sight seeing inside the parks.

    I know what I own is different, but my MH has a bath and a half but the front half bath toilet/sink and the kitchen sink all dump into one black tank and then the full bath in the rear has a black tank and a grey tank.
