I have a Honda 2000, bought not just for camping but emergency and utility use around the house/farm. I like it a lot but it is a (little) heavier than I imagined, and a (little) louder than I imagined. I bought the 2000 because it is large enough to run my (6000 BTU) AC and it was only a couple hundred dollars more than the 1000. That said, I kind of wish I had the 1000 for the smaller size and weight
, AC be hanged. And for all I know the 1000 may have ran my AC. My tow is a full size (F150) so the genny rides in the back of the truck on those rare occasions I take it camping.
