Among the many brands that sell generators to campers and RVers, Honda is the one known for reliability, ease-of-use, top-of-the-line performance, and innovative technology. Its latest lineup of generators for RV and camp use is no exception to this.

Of the generators available from Honda, the following four stand out as smart choices for anyone who RVs: EU2200i, EU2200i Companion, EU3000S1AG, and EU7000IAG. They offer a fantastic blend of high-performance and advanced features that help them stand apart from the competition.

Why a Portable Generator Makes Sense for Camping and RVing

One thing every camper needs is access to power, especially when camping in an RV. If you’re in a developed campground, you’ll likely have access to shore power, but not every campground offers an electrical hookup. That’s where your generator comes into play. While many RVs come with a generator installed, there’s never any harm in having an additional power supply on hand, too. And for those RVs that don’t have a generator, then a Honda portable generator can be a much-needed addition.

A portable generator can provide you with emergency power and the convenience of camping when and where you want to with the ability to have all the power you need. You’ll need to assess your power consumption to ensure you have the right generator for the job, but once you do you can pick the right generator for the job. From there, you should have few issues ensuring you’re comfortable at the campground.

What Makes Honda’s Lineup Special?

There are hundreds of generators on the market, but Honda’s generators are different. They’re known for being quiet and reliable above all else. These attributes alone set them apart from the competition, but they also offer some unique features unavailable from many other brands.

First and foremost is the new CO-MINDER advanced carbon monoxide detection system, with automatic shut-off. Another innovation is connectivity. Honda My Generator smartphone app puts the controls to your generator right in your hand via your smartphone.

Additional features that set these generators apart include fuel-injection, the ability to tether generators together for additional output, intelligent automatic voltage regulation, and more. It’s these features and the performance of the generators in-general that help keep Honda’s offerings at the top.

Honda sells plenty of generators for both residential and commercial use, but it’s the recreational offerings that we want to look at here. The company recently updated its lineup with new features. Here’s a closer look at the four generators previously mentioned.
