I only need one about once year on trips longer then a week, the hire price for two weeks worked out @ once a year is about equal to 10 years @ $1800 (2kva) which I figure that would be the life of a honda. That money isnt including servicing or any break down cost.

And in some cases Ive had years where others who tagged along for the trip already had one.

For me it works out cheaper just to hire.
I think that will honestly be the best option for me.. I don't think it will get enough use to be a worth wild purchase. .

I have a basic non silent one that I can use for house when needed so this is honestly just a camp one and don't see the requirement that's why I started a threat about hiring or loaning one but quickly turned in to buy a honda lol..

I do appreciate all the comments though, it's good to know how powerful they really are..
