REVIEW: HONDA EU20i GENERATOR
Reading Time: 2 minutes

We have nothing bad to say about the Honda EU20i generator – primarily because had we not had it, we would have been taking a very early bath on our first motorhome ski adventure. Unlike other generators we’ve heard of we had no difficulties at altitude. Occasionally it took a few goes in very cold conditions to get it going but it always did, every time.

It is not cheap – firmly in the ‘£1000+ a bit’ bracket. There are a couple of extremely important reasons why you should invest in a high quality generator, not least of all is current stability – cheap generators fluctuate up and down and if like us you carry some expensive (and critical in Hannah’s case) electronic items, you do not want fluctuating power supply.

There are a bunch of pros and cons listed below but these are some of the things that differentiate this generator from it’s rivals:

  • Microprocessor – protects sensitive gadgets (computers, iPads etc)
  • Automatically adjustable throttle – only draws what it needs at any given time
  • Reasonably quiet – 52dB (7m distance) which means you’re only really as loud as the ski lifts around you and won’t bother your aire-neighbours
  • Only 21Kg which means if you can ski all day, you can lug the generator (sorry ladies)
  • We kept this under our bed (we had no garage at this time) and never smelt fumes once.
