Thanks for the info, we are looking for a generator right now, so good timing to find this! Did you compare noise levels between units? Have you used it much yet?
Thanks

Two questions: 1. Like Doug asked, how loud is it? Some friends have Honda generators (two 2,000 to make sure they have enough power) and they are VERY quiet. Important in a tailgate situation where we have tons of RVs lined up right next to each other. 2. How long on a gallon of gas? Or in other words, how fuel efficient is the generator?

Hey Doug, We have only done some quick runs. We will be using it heavily starting next month. As for noise levels, here’s what we have found: Honda EU3000iS: 58dba @ rated laod, 49dba @1/4 load. Yamaha EF3000iSEB 60dba @ rated load, 53dba at 1/4 load. Champion 3500/3200 Watt Dual Fuel 59dba. Can’t find if that’s at rated load or 1/4 load. The Briggs and Stratton P3000 is rated at 58dba @ 1/4 load. The manufacturer states that they don’t have a rating at different loads. That leads me to believe that the champions rating is also at 1/4 load.

Hi RVTailgateLife. I’ll need to get Robert to answer your second question (it might take a bit, he is under the weather right now). 🙂 I answered the first one for Doug as well, here is the response: Honda EU3000iS: 58dba @ rated laod, 49dba @1/4 load. Yamaha EF3000iSEB 60dba @ rated load, 53dba at 1/4 load. Champion 3500/3200 Watt Dual Fuel 59dba. Can’t find if that’s at rated load or 1/4 load.

Thanks for your reply Jessica, after reading your blog and reviews of others we ordered our champion and head out on a three week trip at the end of the month!

My husband, kids and I boondock just about every other weekend during dirt bike race season. We absolutely LOVE this generator! Sure it’s not as quiet as the Honda’s but we are much quieter than the ‘screamer cheapies’. It’s a great middle ground for the money. We use about 5 gallons of gas in a 24hr period on pretty much full load.

Exactly!! It isn’t as quiet as a Honda, but we don’t think the Honda’s are $1000 quieter. lol It is a wonderful generator for the price. Thanks for sharing your experience with it!!
