The Waeco has already forced the price
down on Engel, but sometimes it is hard to tell. Lots of Americans like to rip us off (Canadians) as the product that was brought in when our dollar was at .75 cents on the American dollar, remains the same price
even as our dollar averages .90 cents or more. There was a news item about the price of cars in Canada
versus in the States, and the fact the car is American made; the price of them should be around 10% less, but I can assure you its much more than that.
Since the Waeco fridge has come to my favourite chandlery
, the comparably Engel model has dropped in price about $150. The comparably Waeco is around $150 cheaper than the now reduced Engel and holds a bit more.
By the way, for those of you who have heard of Kipor generators and know they are substantially cheaper than Honda's; I had an interesting conversation with a Canadian supplier who has had to discontinue his Kipor line.
Seems the Kipors are knock offs of Hondas (they been in Europe
for over a decade or more now) and most of the repair parts
can be Honda parts
put the squeeze on the Canadian dealer to discontinue carrying Kipor generators which he has mostly done. Honda says they are too much of a copy of Honda and thus should not be supported. The reason I am telling you here is I don't like companies squeezing out other companies, so you heard it from the Honda's mouth, Kipors are Honda's in drag. If you want a cheaper generator
, buy Kipors (yes they are a proven product and are the second most poplar brand in Europe).
