Plagiurism?

Ken,
Somebody called them on it, and they said they are using the photos from the previous sale (which I would assume to be Richardt's) because they are "of a better quality". Sorry I would not bid on somthing that is not accurately portrayed. Maybe I can sell my AS using pictures of a 2005 Classic...the units are the same but the pictures are of a better quality

I also asked him to post pictures of his considering the price richardt got. His excuse of better pictures is pretty lame.

Has anyone seen the Chinese Honda "clones" advertised in Trailer Life? It is advertised as a 3000 watt generator for $489!!!! Probably not Honda quality, but for the money, it might be worth looking into.

Welcome to the forums.
That looks like the generator I remember seeing at the time this thread was fresh. If the generator runs, the price it is right now would be a steal. Speaking of steal, is Payne's auto sales still in business?
