I have a Mosa gi200sx generator. It produces 1.5kva and weighs less than 4kilos. I was thinking of putting it in the van, when off grid. We mainly stay on sites, and only when travelling down through France in August did we find that it would of been handy, (hairdryer & straightners !!). I have 100watt solar panel and 2 x 110amp leisure batteries and we had no issues with power other than 12volt stuff tends to be crap!! Was just wondering if other funster's carry and use a generator and whether its worth the loss in space and weight, as well as carrying fuel for it as well.
