It should fit............do you have the dimensions of the space where your present generator is? The Onan 2.8 is popular for these smaller campers and motorhomes. Is your present unit worn out or non repairable? Get back to me and I can assist you further on this. All follow ups are included in our fee.

I will measure my space where the old generator was. My old generator was a Generac and it quit running was what the owner said. I cleaned the carbureator (let it soak for two days) and put it back on the generator, started it up, it runs but surges. Thats why I thought I could change to an Onan or a Honda RV generator. I will get back with you with my measurements. Thanks
