Generator Shelter

Sorry if this question has already been answered and I missed it but does anyone have a recommendation for a generator "shelter"? I have a Honda eu2000i and may get a second one to run the AC. But I understand you should not run'em in the rain. Any suggestions are much appreciated!

I used to just park mine under the rear end of my truck and use a cable to lock them to the bumper. I have also seen people put them in a small tent. As well as under a truck camper shell.

I carry a folding table and put them under it with a tarp over the table . If I just use one I have a rubber door mat that I lay over it . I have also let them get rained on once or twice didn't seem to hurt them .

Ok, thanks. In other words, improvise. Makes sense.

We sometimes put ours under a table or under the tailgate, but rain situations shouldn't hurt unless you have a major downpour.

I lock my generator to the frame by the propane tanks. When it rains, I position one of my camp chairs over the generator. It catches 90% of the rain as one side is sheltered by the trailer Be sure to position the chair so the hot exhaust does not blow on the chair fabric.
