The Cummins Onan 5.5kW is also a nice model that will handle most light and medium use applications.

The Cummins Onan has the benefit of a Sound-Attenuating Enclosure w/ Thru Flow Cooling System so the noise volume is lower. By selecting a propane model you are also helping reduce noise volume.

In addition to superior noise reduction and fuel efficiency, one-touch start and self-diagnostic technology make this unit easy to operate.

The perfect LP unit for Class B and C motor... more

Pros: Durable, Quiet, Reliable, High Quality

It is very handy to have, quiet, reliable electrical power whenever you need it. I like it so much I now tell my friends I purchased a new generator and they threw in the trailer to carry it. I have used smaller, cheaper gas power generators but they were noisy, smelly and were manual starting. The new Onan genset is electric start and I am very pleased with... more
Pros: Durable, Easy To Use, Quiet, Reliable
Cons: Expensive
