Honda EU2000i Generator Mount for Bambi

I have found a very good, lockable mount for a Honda EU2000i generator on my 2013 20' Bambi Flying Cloud. The link to Low Pro Lockdown is: LowPro LockDown. Keep what’s yours.

Wow - that is a good find. Thank you for sharing. Would you have time to post some pics of your install?

Now I need to decide if I go for an extra battery or for your LockDown.

Here is the installation complete. The one Con is you have to unbolt the baseplate to get to the battery box. You can access Choke, On/Off Switch and Pull Chord while it is mounted without removing anything. I cover it with the Honda cover while traveling.

I would love to not have to carry it in the Suburban with me but what about all the controversy about mounting items (especially heavy ones) to the frame?
Thanks

I assume that since the lock is strong enough to keep someone from stealing the generator, that the Honda won't fall off during driving. Do you think the battery-box lid-hinge and lock are strong enough not to come off, too?

Looks like a nice installation; please let us know how this works out for you after a few thousand miles on the road.

Thanks for posting installation and photos!

At 46 lbs I am not terribly worried about the added weight. It is not mounted to the frame but the battery box which is stoutly attached inside the A-Frame. I will post feedback after 1,000 miles and beyond.

As long as the front window is not open when you run it I would not think there should be a problem. Remember, you can unlock it from the mount and move it away from the rig, quite flexible.

I actually drilled into the flange of the actual battery box itself. It has 1/2" lips on either side of the box.There is no stress or torque on the lid or hinge.

Will do after 1,000 and beyond.
