I agree with the weight. There is much merit to that thinking. We have a camping friend who goes by HERself. She bought two 2000's so she can move them on her own. The draw back is you loose the elect. start, have a smaller gas tank, and spend more money.
The Honda dealer around here was selling the 3000 for $1,650.00 about 6 months ago. You will spend about a thousand each for 2000's and about $250 for the parallel kit.
