Hi, I just bought a pop up camper with an A/C. I have no idea about generator specifications. What would be a good small portable generator powerful enough to run the A/C on a pop up camper?

Another consideration in buying a generator is weight, and making sure that you can find parts and service for if you ever need it.

I too considered the Honda and Yamaha, but went with the Champion 3500 for budget reasons. I was very pleased as it handles air conditioning, microwave, toasters etc. and starts on the first crank, even if not used for many weeks. I didn't want to go over a 3500/4000 watt generator like this (they are around 100 pounds), as it would be too heavy to easily lift into my vehicle. Voltage is very steady, important as I use computers etc. on a daily basis. After several years with lots of use, and perfect performance I started having a service issue. I was in a small town and took it in to an equipment rental shop where the mechanic works on generators. Although the mechanic had never worked on that brand he was very impressed. He said it was a well built copy of a Honda, and even used a Honda part that it needed, which fit perfectly.
