Contractor generators will be inexpensive, usually in the $500 - $750 range for new. The higher end Onans for RV's tend to run a bit higher. Your best bet on those is to pick up a used unit. There are a lot of RV's that have been parted out and can become an inexpensive donor. However, a new Onan Quiet diesel for RV use will run you over $5,000. Used ones that I've found are $2,500 - $3,000.
I'm in FL, there are TONS of Rv parts, dealers, boneyards, and cl ads. And I've already got the steel cut for where the ac will go.
My parents may even GIVE me a pair of 15k's this coming summer.
The RV parts guy I know can get me 13.5 units for 550 apiece and thats brand new with the lowers.
Cowlitzcoach had some links up for gensets all day long on cl for 500-1000. and no of course that isn't NEW. But neither is my bus.
I'm poor.I'd not even entertained any notion of paying 5000 for ANY part of my bus.
