Honda Generator

I have a 1996 Safari Sahara and I'm looking to buy a new Honda Generator that will fit my RV. I need at least a 6.5 KW. I can not find one . Can any one help me.

While you may find a 6.5K Honda stand-alone generator, I don't think Honda makes anything designed for permanent installation in a RV.

I have an Onan and found out that Onan is out of business. This being said, I am really looking for any new replacement propane generator. Thank you my friend .

Unfortunately, you are right George. But if Honda, Yamaha or even Champion ever decide to build an 'INVERTER' generator for RVs they will quickly take over the market. I am stumped as to why no one has done this yet, I guess it's just too costly to swing into that market.

My thoughts exactly. Cummins Onan is certainly a smart company but I wonder if they are "looking over their shoulder" at the potential competition.
