etrailer.com 6,000 Watt Portable Inverterter Parallel Kit vs Champion Generator

Question:

I have a 50 amp Airstream that has dual-AC units. So it looks like your 6000 watt “parallel package” would be the answer. This generator looks remarkably close to the Champion generator which has remote start as well. Why buy eTrailor package versus the Champion setup?

The etrailer.com 6,000-Watt Portable Inverter Generators # 333-0003-2-0007 that you referenced includes two of the etrailer.com 3,200-Watt Generators (part # 333-0003) along with the parallel kit so you can pair them together for 6,000 watts of power.

It sounds like you are referring to the Champion 3,150-Watt Generator that can be paired with another, as I wasn't able to find a 3,200-Watt unit from Champion.

There are a few main differences that make the etrailer.com model an upgrade over the Champion. First, as already mentioned, the etrailer.com generators by themselves provide a bit more power with a starting (surge) output of 3,200 watts and a running output of 2,900 watts. This is compared to 3,150 watts and 2,850 watts respectively on the Champion model.

In addition to power, the etrailer.com generator can run longer with a gasoline run time at 1/4 load of 9 hours compared to 8 hours on the Champion. The generator itself is also a bit lighter at 90 pounds compared to 95 pounds for the Champion that will allow for easier transport.

From what I could find it also looks like you would be saving quite a bit of money with the etrailer.com kit that includes both generators and the parallel kit.

Other than that both model will have the same noise output and come with a handheld remote for convenient operation. I have attached a short video demonstration that you can check out as well. I just recommend making sure the generator is rated for the starting watts of your particular AC unit.
