    Yes, it was a bit loud, we understand a Honda is much quieter. It’s mainly for when we aren’t on hookup and Mike needs to charge his oxygen machine or scooter.

    We think either a 1 or 2 kw would be ok, depends which comes up first, where it is, price. Etc etc.

    I have a 1Kw Honda with LPG conversion .. It's had very little use and not been run for a year or so.

    If you are interested I will check it over tomorrow morning and start it up ... would be looking for £500.

    I’m not sure what LPG conversion means, can you tell me how it affects the running/filling/efficiency of the generator? We are newbies to generators and know what we want eg 240 when we need it, but not exactly how to get there.

    We have been next to generators which have been noisy in the past and have always sworn we would never have one, but needs must, so we have to find a quiet gennie.

    Is there another generator which is as quiet as the Honda? There are a lot of generators on eBay which claim to be ‘silent’.

    It's a standard Honda EU10 gen which has been professionally adapted to run off LPG instead of petrol but can always be changed back.
    It can be run from a Calor bottle or as I do, from a bbq gas outlet on the motorhome and saves the need to carry petrol cans.

    If you put one of those cover/tents over the generator it helps cut a lot more noise.

    I forgot about that ... I have a "Tent", only tried it once not for noise but for weather protection and will include in sale.

    Unfortunately we don’t have an external BBQ point, so I’m not sure we will be able to make use of your offer.

    Hi, you are certainly not breaking any rules and I will PM you if @Teasy2007 confirms they are not interested in fitting a bbq point and purchasing the generator for themselves.

    Can anyone advise whether there is any difference in the sound levels of the Honda generator and the Kippor. They are both advertised as ‘silent’. Thanks.

    That’s ok with us, we have a PVC with the gas at wrong side of the van, so a BBQ point is not feasible, unfortunately.

    I think you are making a problem that isn't there, easy enough to run a gas pipe under the van from one side to the other.

    That’s the question I would like answered, we stood at the side of the Kippor and it was not silent by any means. My test is, would I like to be parked next to that when it was running? The answer was no.

    There are quite a few ‘silent’ suitcase generators on eBay, so what does silent mean?

    I don't think there is any generator where the answer would be any different unless you are deaf.
