Best Generators For Casita
Posted 08 April 2018 - 12:41 PM
Looking to possibly try Alaska this year, from Florida, if we can get the time & ambition to take the trip on. Any suggestions from anyone?
Thanks Chuck Florida

I'll weigh in... Going through the same decision making process as you. Narrowed my choice to the NEW Honda eu2200i or the 3100 Champion remote electric start. Leaning more towards the Honda. Honda: great reputation and service network, lighter weight and should easily handle my a/c. Champion: would be nice to start from inside Casita. 3100 watts should run a/c plus microwave, but at a weight of almost 90+ pounds. Not certain how many more years I could load/unload that beast.

Maybe also consider Yamaha 2400. May not be able to power A/C and microwave simultaneously, but more power than the Honda 2200. I have the tri-fuel version so I don't have to carry spare gasoline.

I have a Champion 2800W Generator mounted to a cargo carrier on the back of my Casita. It does a great job powering the AC along with other appliances. FYI - it will not run the hot water heater on electric and the Breville Smart Oven at the same time. I think the HWH has a bigger draw than does the AC. I really like my Champion and paid around $600 for it at Costco. The downside is that it's heavy, so as long as you don't have to lug it around, you should be good.
