Wen 2000w Inverter Generator for $385

As I'm getting closer to getting a bus and trying to figure out boondocking, electrical, and the like, I'm paying more attention to things like this.

I have no experience with it, but it gets great reviews.

I love woot. from reading the comments I found it even cheaper on ebay. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Wen-56200I-Super-Quiet-2000-Watt-Portable-Inverter-Generator-Carb-Compliant/202368613058?hash=item2f1e1bfac2:g:VqEAAOSwOaBbSIh ~~

I think I am going to buy 2 and get a parallel kit!

Any concerns that seller is only selling a large quantity of this item and nothing else? And has no relevant feedback as a seller?

That was my worry when I looked at the Ebay listing.

If you decide to buy one on eBay, let us know how it goes.

I saw about 50 other listings in the $200 range and they have all been removed. not a good sign! But I'm tempted to give that one a shot. The listing is different enough and its coming from a domestic address...

I see the same generator at Home Depot for $448.

It has good reviews. Average 4.6 with 202 reviews.

What the hell I put in an order. if I get it for $200 that's great, If I don't then I get my money back in a couple days.

I jumped on one also considering the others listed are $500-$600. At worst I get my money back. He has only feedback for sports clothing/shoes. Maybe he swiped a pallet of these, says he's sold 13 of them so far out of 24.

Just got an email from Ebay, it was a scam and i've been refunded. That didn't take long!
