Recreational Generator Buyer's Guide

Recreational generators supply power to the remotest places on the planet.

In the past, they've received a bad rap because of their noise. Not anymore.

These days, recreational generators employ inverter technology, which are significantly quieter than old fashioned emergency generators.

Sure, you can still use a recreational generator during an emergency. However, we strongly recommend against using an emergency generator while camping.

Inverter Generator
Inverter Recreational GeneratorInverter generators are ideal for camping, boating, and tailgating.

They are extra quiet because they utilize a unique type of alternator to generate very clean AC power. This inverter alternator also reduces the generator's size and weight.

Equally as important, the engine can run at varying speeds, significantly reducing noise levels and fuel consumption.

RV Generators
RV GeneratorRV generators are designed to meet the high-powered demands of RV appliances like air conditioning units, refrigerators, TVs, and more.

They're pricier than other portable generators, but it's worth the extra money to have power when you need it.

After all, when you're traveling around in an RV, it's because you want to bring the comforts of home along for the trip.
