A friend of mine is looking a case to keep his new resonator in around the house. Is there any such thing as a decent generic case or are they generally made to fit specific models?

Is there anywhere else we should be looking other than thomann?

I think it's the case that acoustic body sizes are generic themselves, so cases fit easily because of that. The thing to do is take a bunch of measurements and then compare that to well known Martin models.

What's his price range?

This is one damn fine case for the money. $59.00 is the price now, but I paid $53.00 for mine, must have been on sale or used a coupon. I replaced most of my cheap ass cardboard cases with these.

I'd been doing a similar search recently and had my eye on this...

Seems the cheapest / most decent looking case I could find for the money.

Dread size would probably cover your needs, fits most things other than jumbo or slim bodied things, but there may be some excess room. Occasionally a strap or whatever will limit the untoward movement inside, or beer towel if more extreme.

I reckon judging by how much I juggle guitars around in various cases, then you may be best lookin at Classical case proportions if it's the usual resonator type shape. I would find a case that you like and ask the maker for dimensions, or look on their website.
