Why Hire a Generator For Camping?

why hire a generator for camping

When looking to go camping or even using a motorhome in the countryside, one of the main concerns that you may be contemplating is the issues you may come across in terms of power supply.

Hiring a generator is the perfect way for you to negate this issue as it means that you will have an ample amount of backup power just in case your main source runs out. Generators can also even be used as a main source of power if you do not have anything else to get you through.

Throughout this blog post, we are going to be discussing some of the main reasons why hiring a generator for a camping trip would be incredibly beneficial.


Hiring a Diesel Generator

At Pleavin Power, we are able to provide you with all sorts of generators from diesel to portable depending on the job that you need them for.

If you are in need of a generator for any kind of job then we are here to help you decide which would be best to solve your problem and lend itself perfectly to your situation.

Hiring a generator tends to be much cheaper than buying one outright as you are only using the service for a limited amount of time, making this option look very enticing if you know that this may be a one-off or limited-time crisis.

While it can be rather difficult to decide which generator you may need for a specific job, that’s why we’re here to help, you can contact us at any time at 0151 832 5007 or [email protected] and we will be happy to help you with any questions you may have.


Camping With a Generator

Whether you choose to go camping with a group of friends or perhaps you’re going away with family, having power throughout your stay for certain essential appliances is incredibly important, especially if you are travelling in a large group.

Hiring a generator in order to keep on top of your power situation while you are away is, of course, one of the smartest things you can do to ensure continued contact with your family and friends in case of an emergency.

This can also be incredibly useful in the event of your motorhome running out of power if you have decided to go camping with one, a generator will be able to supply you with a great amount of electricity for a prolonged period of time, certainly for the length that you’re away.

Something that many people ask is whether you truly need a generator while you are camping and the simple answer is no, of course not – however, they are incredibly useful to have at your disposal when camping in the wild.

For those of you who are planning on going to a campsite with a motorhome or caravan, generators can provide you with a great deal of benefits for this too (as we have briefly mentioned above).

Pleavin Power generators are excellent at providing you with quiet, clean fuel that is not damaging to the environment, making them the perfect choice for taking to a public campsite or even to a general outdoor space.


Different Types of Generators for Camping

When looking into purchasing or hiring a generator for use on a camping trip, it is important that you know and understands the different types of generators that are available to you.

These can be in the form of alternative fuel types such as diesel or petrol and can differ in their wattage produced.

For example, in our range of Diesel generators, we have a selection of different-sized units all of which differ in the amount of power that they give off.

These generators range from around 17 kVA to 550 kVA and are all used for vastly different things depending on their size.

In the setting of a camping trip, we recommend that you opt for a smaller duty generator as they are far cheaper and will be more than enough to supply you in the meantime.

Portable generators are the most ideal pieces of equipment that you can take on a camping trip, however, as they are very easily stored in these sorts of situations and will have more than enough power to supply your needs for the duration of your trip.

These types of generators will remain quiet to not disturb you or the neighbouring campers in the surrounding area.

One important thing to keep in mind is that some campsites do restrict the usage of generators therefore you may not be able to bring one with you. If you do wish to bring a generator for some power while you’re away, you may want to check this with the campsite beforehand.



To summarise, there are plenty of different reasons why you may wish to hire a generator for a camping trip. Whether you need extra power for your motorhome or you just want some power for your tent, there is always a generator available to suit these needs.

Generators make your life much easier when camping, they ensure that you have access to phone chargers to keep in contact with others in case something goes wrong and can provide the lighting necessary for keeping your area illuminated.

They can be put away when they are not needed and will be sure to deliver an ample amount of power whenever they are needed.
