Taking along a portable generator when you travel may not seem necessary if you always stay at campgrounds. However, the real adventure involves traveling to other locations where you may not be able to plug in. Having a portable generator may save you a night in the dark.
Portable generators come in a large variety of sizes and can power everything from a small camper to a full sized RV. The key issue is one of storage. Some such units can be pulled behind in a trailer; others may fit inside a storage bin in the RV. If you are unsure how large a unit you need to power all of your appliances, consult with a Camping World expert.
