The Onan operates at 70dBA and the Honda 2000i between 53-59 dBA.

However, if you are considering a Onan QG2500, grab one quickly as they have been discontinued. When the remaining retail stock is gone there isn't a comparable Onan option being offered as a replacement for this size unit.

The Onan QG2500 is capable of starting and supporting a 13.5K btu AC unit, but not the larger 15K btu.

My gen set was installed by myself and NOT by Airstream since they do not instal gen sets in their travel trailers but do however install them in the Interstate Class C. The installation I did was extreme more than most out there with the noise and vibration control and the snug fit in a 19" vintage style trailer.

champion just released a "dual fuel" gas and propane model, sold exclusively through costco...got mine two weeks ago. this unit is rugged, extremely well designed, and has a high quality enclosed sound deadening cabinet. i had two hondas that were stolen... they were great. i do believe that the many fine inverter generators at much lower cost plus higher features, has outmarketed the honda... honda is now over-priced in my judgment. now, with the champion, i am looking forward to the convenience of gas OR propane fuel.

I have an Onan 6500 propane generator that was original equipment on my Landyacht. Currently has about 550 hours. Just finished a 20 day dry camping trip to the Florida Keys. Had to run the generator about 2 hours per day to keep the batteries up and it burned thru a tank and half of propane doing that. Normally I do not use it that much unless on road inbetween stops.

Knowing what I do now, other RV'ers with diesel generators were running off their main fuel tank and went over a month without having to fill up again. Propane was $3.65 gal in Key West and it always took about 25 gals to fill so its adds up after awhile. Many other owners were using small Honda generators which were quitter and kept their rigs going on 30amp. Fortunately I did not need AC that much but found that more parts of my motorhome needed power than expected so also looking at solar upgrades for next year.

Propane conversion with Honda 2000EU

I have limited use with my US Carburetor conversion of Honda 2000 which is gas/propane capable-- under $200. Wet gas in the winter pushed me to convert and the kit is well instructed and is largely external. The regulator is needs to be next to the generator, and the valve control is sensitive. Once set, the starting is reliable and much better in the cold. No more gas to haul, and tap the propane tanks with "Y-valve". I tap straight in the tank as auxiliary tap for grill is small er flow than recommended. Have not measured the flow rate-- use a lot more propane in the winter with the furnace.
