Greetings!

I am planning on purchasing a Honda EU2200i inverter generator for our Elite I and am interested in how best to secure the generator.  I am ordering the tongue box and plan to transport it there.  I was interested in your thoughts on how best to secure it there as well as when you are using it in camp.

Thoughts?

We added a locking cross-bed tool box to our pickup.  It's actually one that sits down in the bed, flush with the bed rails (not resting on top of them.  It's roomy enough to carry our BBQ grill, portable generator, fuel and a small propane tank in it as well as other gear that we don't want to worry about "walking off".

Yes, that does look a bunch better than having some cables or chains with big old padlocks.  Certainly it will draw less attention.  It will be interesting to hear how it works in the real world.

Look at a LowPro LockDown.

I don’t have one yet but this is what another forum member uses and it looks like the best solution to me.

 

This does seem like a great way to secure a generator but I don’t think this company is still in business.

The facebook page hasn't been updated in ages. http://perfectcasita.com/ was updated in early 2019 but the e-commerce pages are broken on both http://perfectcasita.com/  and http://lowprolockdown.com   

Really cool product. Maybe the 2020 RV madness will open them back up for business.

(469) 312-1222 if anyone wants to give their listed number a try.

Actually, if they aren't in business anymore, I  think there are some highly skilled metal shop folks here who could build something similar, from the photos....

I called Orbital Machine Works, the company that makes this item. The lady that returned my call said that they are still being made, but you put your name on a waiting list and the wait time is currently 1 year.

As of today, still a 1 year waiting list 😲 and if you want to order one, you need to do it by phone as their website doesn't work for orders.  I didn't ask what the current price was as I didn't want to wait the year.

Here is another option you may look at a rv generator box  the company makes aluminum diamond plate Rv generator boxes that are made for small generators and can be run in the box. I’m sure this will fit the Ollie basket then just  bolt it down to the basket should be a secure option  i can’t link the web site.  The web site is rvgeneratorbox.com
