  • RV travellers wishing to enhance their freedom and nomad lifestyle
  • Occasional participants of outdoor events, competitions, concerts and festivals
  • Amateur DIY lovers
  • Homeowners in need of an emergency backup power for their essentials

In the following paragraphs, we shall explore the power characteristics, available outlets, portability, and any additional features of the device, along with its emission compliance information.

Power & Run Time

The Champion 200967 in use

The Champion 200967

With its dual-fuel technology, the powerful and versatile Champion 200967 provides an output of 120V. While gasoline-powered, it gives a running wattage of 3500W along with a peak wattage of 4375W. While propane-powered, it provides 3150 rated watts and 3950 starting watts.

The generator is rated for a noise of 68 dBA (less noisy than an office). Its starting mechanism is based on a simple traditional pull-start mechanism.

With a fuel capacity of 4.7 gallons, the 200967 can operate for around 14 hours at 50% load using gasoline (fuel consumption around 0.34 GPH), or for around 10.5 hours (on a 20 lbs tank - propane consumption around 0.45 GPH) using propane.

Since the 200967 has a somewhat high THD (<20%), it is advisable to not use it for the powering of sensitive electronic devices.

Outlets

The control panel provides the upcoming 4 AC outlets:

Duplex 120V 20A (5-20R)
120V 30A (L5-30R) receptacle
120V 30A (TT-30R) receptacle

This Champion generator is RV Ready, thanks to its TT-30R receptacle (TT stands for 'Travel Trailer').

Portability

With its dimensions of L23.4 x W19.7 x H19.8 in, the conventional, open frame design of the Champion 200967 offers stability and allows the generator to be raised above ground level. The design is ideal for rough environments and demanding outdoor use.

Since the generator weighs 108 lbs, it will be incredibly difficult to manually lift it and transport it, even though it is technically considered to 'be portable' (in the sense that it is movable). To enhance the generator's mobility, it is worth considering purchasing an official wheel kit (opens in a new tab).

Features

The 200967's control panel

To help you monitor the 200967's status and activity, its control panel is equipped with an Intelligauge meter, which displays voltage, frequency and lifetime hours.

Thanks to a built-in fuel gauge, the generator allows you to quickly, conveniently and easily check the gas level at a glance.

As for its security measures, the device features an overload protection (circuit breaker) and an automatic low oil shut-off, letting you use it with a peace of mind. Champion's built-in surge protector (Volt Guard™) safeguards your equipment and appliances against voltage spikes.

Along the basic documentation and an owner's manual (opens in a new tab), useful for starting the generator right away, the Champion 200967's package also includes these accessories: oil, funnel, cover and propane hose.

Emissions

The Champion 200967 is EPA-approved and CARB-compliant. Therefore, its sale and purchase are permitted in all of the 50 states, including California.

Moreover, it features a spark arrestor and therefore, can be used in forested areas.

The Champion 200967 versus other generators

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how some of the key specs of the Champion 200967 compare to dual fuel generators of similar power (between 3000 and 4000 W).

  • Having a dry weight of 108 lbs, the Champion 200967 belongs in the expected weight range for dual fuel generators which produce 3000 to 4000 rated watts. Regarding dry weight, one of the champions in the same power range is the Genmax GM3500iAED, with a dry weight of only 56.2 lbs.
  • This generator, with its lowest possible noise rated at 68 dBA falls into the more noisy category, compared to other devices of a similar running wattage. For those who are looking for a less noisy device, we suggest the Westinghouse iGen4500DF. With just 52 dBA, it is one of the most quiet devices in this power range.
  • With a run time of around 14 hours at 50% load, the 200967 has one of the higher run times, compared to its similarly powerful peers. If concerned with autonomy, one of the products of a comparable power output, which offers the highest run time, is the Westinghouse iGen4500DF, boasting with around 15 hours.
  • While the run time is an important parameter, it is dependent on the fuel tank’s capacity and thus, doesn’t say much on its own unless we consider fuel consumption as well. Standing at an estimated 0.34 GPH (gallon per hour) at a 50% load, this generator is somewhat average in this area compared to other devices, within the aforementioned wattage range. If fuel consumption is your top priority, we suggest to check out the Westinghouse iGen4500DF, which has a fuel consumption of only 0.23 GPH and thus, is one of the most efficient devices in our database.

Price comparison

As you can see from this interactive chart, when compared to other 3000-4000W dual fuel generators, the Champion 200967 is on the cheap side of the price range.

It can therefore be a really good buy if you're looking to acquire a budget generator.
