Hi All,
we are brand new at all this & are just about to buy a new 5th wheeler to travel around Australia - long term.
I have two Questions.
1st Question: Which is the best Genie to buy? We are looking at a 4- stroke petrol Yamaha "Blue Whisper" at the moment.
2nd Question: What's with all the "talk" about the difference in Caravaners & 5th Wheelers???? It seems to me they don't see eye to eye ... Can some of you tell me Why?
Thanks in advance for your help.
Cheers from Vic & Tone.

U will find this stems from the CMCA which allowed 5th w,s as members but dose not allow caravans

You really should do a search on generators because this issue has been covered many, many times. You will only ever get a few replies to any given question, but the number of hits you'll find via a search will be significantly greater.
No idea what item 2 is about.
Cheers from the Moose
PS Make sure you know exactly how tall your rig is - so that you don't do what that poor bugger did down south. What a way to ruin your travels.

Many thanks for your replies - It sounds like we had better do a bit more homework on Genie's & then just buy one & hope it's as good as it sounds in the ad.
As for the difference in the "travelling groups" views on their accommodation units, I guess I will have to find out "on the road".
I hope everyone is well mannered enough to include us 5th wheelers in their gatherings & meeting places.
Cheers from Vic & Tone.

Suggest you ask on a caravan forum as there are big differences between brands for suitability to task.
We have a Yamaha EF1000 we use to run our airconditioner on extreme heat days and emergency backup to the solar, but never needed it for that in 2 yrs travelling full time.

Lot of money to outlay so get a good one ...that will give a long and reliable service,
So long as it's not made in China you'll be on a winner.
