You can use one Standard and one Companion (that's what we do) ... or two Campanions (but there's really no reason to do that)... With one of each you have everything... We have never used the 12v outlet on the standard (you need cables for it, too) to charge our batteries...as using the shore power cord and charging through the converter is more efficient...plus you have all the other 110 outlets live.

Dont forget, most dependable and longest lasting, like a chevy.

One or two

I looked into the combo 2000s, I decided to go with one 3000 for the simple fact that I didnt want to have to keep up with hours for the two 2000s, oil changes for 2 generators, air filters, for two, and so on.

The 3000 powers our trailer just fine and I only have to keep up with one genny. This works for me, but others may not see it that way. Yes my genny is heavy but once its loaded in the TV it stays there.

No there are a lot of advantages to the two 2000s but to me there were just as many hassels as advantages.
So I kept it simple and have one genny.

But its all in what you want at the end of the day.

@Mr. S: We here in Texas have the dubious advantage of needing enough generator for AC 90% of the time, so it's not as much of a benefit for us to be able to take just one generator of the pair.

We own 2 2000's. The only reason I had for buying the pair and not the 3000 was the weight. My tv will handle it but not the owner,at 73 loading and unloading a 3000 was way to much but would have rather had it.But the 2's I can handle and they do the job.

I have a onda EU3000IS and I love it.Just got back from the past weekend Deer Hunting. It is quiet and I ran it over 7 hurs without filling it up. I still have gas in it.

Holds 3.4 gallons I believe...Amazing....Wasn't running the A/c the whole time, though. I was watching TV and Movies between hunts. I was running on Eco Mode.

If the weight is not an issue....Less filling of gens if your debating foing with 2. Also fill it up and you already have 3.4 gallons ahead,..then bring a spare gas can.
