I have an Onan and I have had good service. Some have stated that they are having poor service and parts through Cummins. I have not but I would check before I bought in your area.
I would get a good brand that has local parts and service available. IF you use propane for anything that is the best fuel source. If you have a gas gen set I would get some of the pre-packaged gas to keep. It is sealed so it does not go stale like the regular station stuff.
About ten years ago on Christmas eve the whole family was at my sister's house for Christmas. They had major Ice storm. Lines and trees down every where. We spent the first night without electric because her generator would not start because of bad fuel. So in the early morning in zero weather I am cleaning the carburetor and others are walking to find some fresh gas. There where so many trees down that a car was useless. Finally got it going. She had to use it for ten days before she had electric back. Keeping it going with gas was a real pain after the second day. There where no stations with electric close by. Had to clean streets and borrow lawn mower gas to keep it going. She switched it over to propane and has ZERO problems since then.
