    I will taking an RV to a location where there will be no electricity so we will have to rent or buy a generator. I could use some advice on a low noise one as we will be in a compact area with lots of other campers, I need one that won't get me run out of the camp. I can buy a Generac from my company at cost. I called Generac and asked about the decible level and they said they do not rate decibles on their products.

    I need something that won't break the bank. I know Honda and Yamaha have super quiete ones, but those are $$$ and way out of my budget.

    Any advice would be helpful.

    Generac will get you tossed out of the campground or the campers will put you on the chit list. There are a couple of Chinese gens that are quiet and have mixed reviews, mostly OK about 1/2 price of the Hondas and yammies. Ken on here carries one brand.

    Look into the Powerhouse brand, I sell them and they are working well.

    The location is a motorycle rally so there will be a lot of noise from many sources, it is not a camping ground like in a state park, so some noise is acceptable. A lot of people have generators and I never really noticed them last time. Someone in my group borrowed a used Gen and it sounded like a 747.
