As fast as technology is advancing they will probably be at the Consumer Electronics Show in a few more years. I predict brisk sales. . .

Sounds like a wrench has been thrown at your wench plan?

Cabela's carries a manual hoist that fits into the receiver hitch and it has a hoist arm, a crank and steel cable and hook that can lift several hundred pounds..
It's advertised as a deer hoist for hunters.
I use one to lift my generator for loading and unloading it in the pick up bed and, it works great. It has a geared ratio crank that takes all the work out of lifting. No motor needed.

Bluto, you are the man, I promised my Bride I would stay out of Cabala's in the near future as I am drawn to the place like a dear in headlights. But what the heck, this sounds like exactly what I am looking for and I will just have to say the devil made me do it and get in the truck and go.

Harbor Freight has a hydraulic lift cost a lot less than an electric winch and will hoist a 3000W generator into the bed of a pick-up.

Stopped by Cabela's today on my way to Denton Airstream to find out what products they used on their panels; I asked Cabela's salesman about the deer hoist and he said they were out but said they had ten on order. I haven’t made it to harbor Freight yet, but appreciate all the great feedback.
