Yeah, it's a serious problem. I have a Westinghouse WH2200IXLT 1800W digital inverter generator, I purchased it at about $480 and have been using it for a couple of months, it's less noisy...am happy with that.

I paid $890 for it (Briggs & Stratton-Storm Responder 5500 Watt Generator). My son-in-law cut the cable to adapt it to my camper so now Lowes' probably won't give me a refund. I understand there are quiter models out there....but I made a hasty purchase when the campsite didn't have electric hookup and we really needed the AC.
Unfortunately I don't believe it's possible to do much if anything. There's a lot of mechanical noise from the open frame design. We've been in a similar situation before, so we've built a box and it was... well, not entirely useless, but it reduced the intensity of a sound just a bit.
Mistakes were made, I must admit.

So just replace it with an inverter type - from my experience, Yamahas (I'm talking about EF2000iSv2) are great. You'll save fuel and it will be much quieter. As another option - we replaced my father's old generator with two Honda's. Won't say it was the cheapest solution available, but it was a good one certainly.
