Replacement generator for 1974 Argosy 20?

Has anyone replaced the generator on a 1974 Argosy 20? (rear bath model) The gen set door on the curb side looks pretty small.

If so, what make/model fits in that spot. Thanks.

The original genset would likely have been a 4K unit of either Onan or Generac manufacture.

The odds are the genset is installed from below which is how my 20' front bath model is set up. Even the 345 was installed from below. However our 310 was set up to come out from the side or drop down from below. Personally I like the ability to remove from the side which means it can be put on drawer slides for easy access and maintenance. That's what I did on our 310 and will be doing on the Argosy.
