Default Onan JB Prefab Enclosure Options

Good morning
Planning to move my JB, BGA and other Gen sets from PA to Wisconsin in early October. Not going to have a shed so I need to come up with a respectable generators enclosure to put the generator outdoors. New neighborhood is nice and I need to find a nice enclosure. I know Onan JB enclosures are like hens teeth but does anyone have one they would be willing to sell? I can rep ain't it but need some options. Any reccomended sources for empty generac enclosures that would fit the JB? Will power it off natural gas near the meter. Any suggestions? Thanks Gregg

PM me, I have an enclosure for a JB you're welcome to. Not sure what it will take to ship it though.

If you want to get the actual enclosure from one of the guys who offered, try uship. They quickly shop a multitude of trucking companies.


They could probably lag bolt the enclosure directly to a pallet. If you can ship it from and to a business with fork lift the shipping cost will probably be less than $100. If you do business to residence it will be a couple hundred more but still cheaper than making your own I'm sure.
