Default 10,000 watt Generator from Sams Club

I am thinking about purchasing a generator from Sams Club. Gentron 10,000 watt for $878. I have looked at Harbor Freight and think that the one from Sams is a better deal. Does anyone know of a better deal for under $1000 ?

I would use this for camping as well. I need a 30 amp service for my camper.
