Looking for 3,000 watt generators. What do you have?

I have both a Honda EU3000 and a Predator 3500. They bare both equally good generators but overall I would go with the Predator. There are a few reasons the predator is lighter than the Honda and comes with wheels ($80-100 for a wheel kit for Honda). The Honda sells for ~ $2100 and you can get the predator for $700 with readily available coupon and $650 with less frequent coupon. The predator has all the features of the Honda as well as a nice digital display on the front of the generator. The only thing I wish the Predator had a was a gas gauge but it is not big sticking point
I'd like to add to this question- has anyone ever used Solar Power? I was talking to a camper recently and they said they make solar power units that have lots of power and simply plug in. Anyone checked this out?

I’ve been using solar at shows for 15 yrs.  I only use it for a night light display I have, so I only use a 35 ah AGM battery and a 7w panel.  It also keeps my phone & iPad charged at the show. 

This might not be applicable but, most shows I know of don't allow generators, no matter how quiet, for your booth.

Also many that allow onsite RV's / parking etc, don't allow generators.

You may not be looking for those puposes, though.
