Great value for the price, January 24, 2012 By Brian R. Hurley "Indy constructor" (Indianapolis, Indiana)
(REAL NAME)

Purchase my Champion 2000 watt at Sams Club in Indianapolis Indiana, for $299 + tax and it is fantastic. I took ten minutes to read the excellent manual, filled with oil and gas and it started second pull. I am a contractor and have used it during the last 2 weeks on several projects where 11v was not available. It has two 110v outlets and provided steady power for a large hammer drill and other tools without missing a beat. Its built very well and the design prevents most of the generator from damage and rain. It has low noise levels even when its not idling in econ mode. Manual has a large parts list and I expect the service/help to match the products quality.

Honda & Yamaha watch out!, January 4, 2012 By Kevin (Los Angeles, CA)

I purchased this generator from Costco for use with my Coach when dry camping. Much cheaper to run than my larger on board diesel generator. I was unable to use this right out of the box. After a quick call to Champion Power, I had it up and running after having to make a short pig-tail due to the floating ground in portable generators. So far, this generator has been able to power my inverter/charger in Bulk mode, Coffee Maker as well as our 1800 watt Microwave/Convection oven (I had to make sure that charger was turned off first, no other loads were on during this test.) This generator has just as much power as my friends EU2000i. My only regret is that I did not purchase this sooner. For the money, I would rather buy two of these and link them together for double the power of the EU2000i. This generator should save me over $20 a day from running my diesel generator. I figure it will pay for itself the first year. BTW, the customer support at Champion is EXCELLENT! Can the same thing be said about Yamaha and Honda?

Great gens for the money!, December 14, 2011 By Kozz

I was lucky enough to be able to get two of these at Sams Club for $299 each as they lower the price as their stock dwindles.I also picked up the Parallel kit($59 at Costco) to combine the two units power .These were purchased mainly to power our new Toy Hauler/RV when "dry camping". They are impressively quiet!Just as quiet as my buddies Honda 2000i.One does the job but have to run two for 15,000 btu a/c.That's exactly what I expected.Power management is key with any unit like these...power up largest items to "running watts" first and then down to smaller items.To me the units work flawless and along with the gens from Sams, I bought their extended 3 yr. warranty which even covers "normal wear and tear" for $39 a unit.4 years bumper to bumper warranty!I have used Sams warranty in the past and its been great.So,out the door was for the two units,parallel kit,ex. warranty $700!I am the proverbial "Happy Camper"!Great product even at 500-600 bucks a unit considering the other options out there.

Qiet, reliable, economical, December 6, 2011 By juliannah

We purchased this generator for our 29' trailer. I run computer equipment, printers, television and more and it has been reliable and economical. I especially like the econ mode. We can run it up to 9hrs without adding gas. It runs quiet too. Our camping neighbors come by to look at it because it is so quiet. It is also light enough where I can move it when my husband is not around. It is also carb compliant, which is difficult to find a generator with all these qualities and at an affordable price.

One of the best items I've ever bought for camping!, November 24, 2011 By mr.wings

My wife and I have done a lot of research before we finally decided to take the risk to get this no name brand inverter generator. I was very skeptical and was ready to send it right back if it turned out to be as bad as some reviewers rated this generator.
But here I am, sitting under the stars dry camping in the beautiful Californian Desert to write this review: electricity provided by the amazing Champion 2000! This thing does exactly what it is advertised to do: It generates up to 2000 Watts starting power, and can handle continuous loads of 1600 Watts with no problem. My wife has a 1800 Watts hair dryer as well as a 1800 Watts iron. The generator has no problems with it. It starts right up every time, and the fuel economy is astounding. It runs up to 16 hours on 1 gallon in economy mode. It is quiet. With a long extension cord running in economy you don't hear more than a humming sound outside. We have had it for about 100 hours of running time, and I have done an oil change as recommended. That was all I had to do so far. This is one of the best investments we have made so far for our camping trips! Highly recommended!

Great unit, November 9, 2011 By dave

Bought two of these. The first fired up right away and worked great. Ran our pump for the house heating, fridge, two full fish tanks with heaters, and a bunch of lights. 10 hours on a tank and fairly quiet. A brilliant little machine that is easy enough to start that my 9 year old daughter was able to do it. The second wouldn't run everything. Bummed about that, but tech support is working with me and has assured me they will take care of this, so all in all a great product.

Great Value, Quiet, November 6, 2011 By MattW

I bought this generator to power a 1200 watt sound system, laptop and some lights for weekends of outdoor camping/partying. It has only been used for one 3 day weekend so far but it will definitely be back for more. I ran the unit for 3 days straight drawing about 1000 watts on average the entire time. During this time it used less then 4 gallons of gas and never had to be taken off economy mode. Several people came up to me and commented about how quiet it was. From reading many reviews before purchasing the gold standard in inverter generators of this size seems to be the Honda EU2000i. From what I have seen so far this unit delivers identical performance for less than half the price.

Highly recommend!

Great Generator, October 9, 2011 By Phil

I have an older 28 ft. class C - RV with a 4000 watt Onan generator built in. I'v been having trouble with the Onan and replaced many parts and still having difficulty getting it to run properly I purchased the Champion 7351 2,000 Watt generator at Costco for $480.00 with an instant rebate of $40.00. Tried it for two weekends camping on the ocean.
Works great...It Charged my house battery, worked my refrig, TV , heater motor and surround sound .Starts right up and very quiet. I will be purchasing another so I can run both together with the $69.00 kit to run the roof top air conditioner in the summer.
