    Hi We are looking for a little Honda generator, we are watching a couple on ebay, but any advice on what to look for when we win one would be appreciated.

    If anyone has one for sale, please get back to me asap!

    From personal experience I would recommend one with a lpg conversion .... we always have lpg on board and no petrol required along with it's inherent smell and fire risk. :thumb:

    The question I would ask is are you sure you actually need one?

    Many Funsters have spent money on gennies, only to end up leaving them at home in the garage as they were so rarely used.

    We came very close to buying a small generator thinking, "We need one just in case" as we are fairly power hungry with our two young boys in tow. The van has two TV/DVD units fitted, we normally have 2 laptops, 2 iPads, 2 PSVitas, plus mobiles and other gadgets in use very day and being charged.

    So instead of a gennie, we almost doubled our battery capacity from 1 x 90a/h to 2 x 85 a/h, and had a 85W solar panel fitted, also changed all lighting to LED.
    Total cost for all of that, not much different from a 2nd hand Honda 1.0i.

    Since then we have never had a power problem, even when Wilding in the North of Scotland in March for 3 or 4 days at a time, without even driving or running the engine to charge the batteries.:thumb:

    It's worth a thought.......
