$899

I bought my EU2000i for $899 from my local Honda dealer. At the time, that was the best price I saw online as well. I see they have since come down a little bit. But, my local guy prepped it, etc. And, he is also an authorized service center. Had I ordered it online, i wouldn't get the service that I could by buying it locally.

That being said....I pour in the gas, pull the rope, and she purrs. No service required.

The EU2000i really is a nice little genny. I want to get a second one so I can run the a/c.....

cheers,

Lowest prices on Honda gensets (2000i series)

In my case talked with all of the Honda sellers referenced on this thread....
Thanks to all for those contacts! Mayberrys had the lowest prices for
both the 2000i and the 2000i companion as they offered the two units with
the parallel cable, the DC cable and a tune-up kit for the Companion as it does not have the DC outlet. Shipped to my doorstep for $1898. Spent some time with my local Honda dealer in the morning to muddle thru the different products... called the Airstream technical support folks and told them I had a Flying Cloud Bambi with the 13,500 btu A/C and they indicated that the 3000 series would work most of the time, but on a very hot day over 90 degrees, the 3000i stood a very good chance of stopping as it could not keep up with the demand. Recommended two 2000i units instead from either Honda or Yamaha. Called my local dealer with the pricing from Mayberrys and they called back to meet that pricing which made me happy as they are about 8 miles from my house if any warranty issues happen. That's my story and I should also add that there is a unit 3,500 watter from ETQ with inverter for much less money and I wondered if anyone had or knew about these generators.

I'm presently looking at the Honda 2000I and the Honda 2000I Companion. I intend to eventually buy both to hook them together and run the A/C unit. Does it matter which unit is purchased first. I may not purchase the 2nd unit for a year or so and want to buy the one that simplifies use as much as possible. The companion appears to be a bit more expensive. jc

I'm pretty sure that we'll need the eu3000i for our Sovereign (original Armstrong A/C). How quiet is it?

Buy the 2000i first then the Companion.

Honda

I have a Honda 3000 and paid 1895.00. It powers my air with the eco switch on (lower rpm) and is as quite as anything out there. The only draw back is that it is a bit on the heavy side. I have it chained into the bed of my TV so I never have to move it. When I run it I just fold back the bed cover a bit.....tim

Update. Bought the 3000 Handi from my local Honda dealer right after Christmas for
$1799. Honda also had a promotion of no interest on the purchase if you used their
Honda Power card. Of course, the dealer did not prep it, but all I had to do was take it
home read the manual add oil, and bingo it fired right up and ran like a charm. Certainly
easier to handle rather than the heavier 3000. Tried it out with my Bambi with both a/c
and the heat pump with several items also on in the trailer.... no problems were seen.
Also, was very pleased with the sound levels on both the eco and the full bore.

Update. You may find prices have increased everywhere. I just bought a 2000is for $869.99 from WiseSales.com, but was told the price is now $889.99. The 2000is Companion is now $989.99, the 3000is is $1,699.99 and the 3000i Handi is $1,799.99. Free shipping and no tax. Mine arrived in 4 days. Also bought the Honda Hour Meter $49.99 and the Oil Spout $14.99. The instructions for mounting the Hour Meter are poor to say the least and fortunately others on Airforums and other sites had great suggestions including storing in a Rubbermaid ActionPacker which I found for $22.99.
Most dealers will not post their prices and you have to phone them.
Next purchase is the 2000i Companion, parallel cable and maybe the 5 gal extended fuel tank.

Great prices, Don. Good idea on the hour meter. I just took delivery of a 2000i Companion for $999.00. Parallel cables and RV adapter was $40. I stuck with Mayberry's again. Received it in under 48 hrs. Shipping included, and no sales tax. They even fill out, and send in, the warranty card for you.
Hope to see you at CBR.

My TV is an SUV. Would it be safe for me to carry one of the new Honda gasoline powered generators inside my SUV? It sounds dangerous to me to have gasoline inside, but I thought it would be worth asking because maybe you guys do it regularly without any problems.
What are some other options for places to carry the geneator? I've got a 20' Safari.

There is surprisingly little gas odor/fumes from the Honda 2000 generator itself. The gas tank cap has a valve that you close when not in use to prevent air from drawing in or out. If you carry it in the Rubbermaid Action 24 Gal Packer Tote mentioned above ( http://www.rubbermaid.com/Category/P...atName=Storage ), odor/fumes are further reduced...and you can make the Action Packer more air tight if you wish by adding weather stripping (or other types of sealing material) to the edge of the lid. The handle of the Honda 2000 handily fits into one of several lengthwsie grooves on the underside of the lid which keeps the generator stabilized inside the tote, and leaves room for cables, extra oil, adapters, manuals, etc. I don't think I would hesitate to carry the generator in an SUV using the tote. We have friends who carry theirs in an SUV and don't use a tote.

However, I have noticed that gas leaks from the carb if you tilt the generator - while lifting it for example. Gas then drips out a drain tube. I haven't noticed that happening with a Yamaha, maybe because it has a fuel shut-off.
