EF2800i shipping Friday

Went ahead and ordered the EF2800i from WiseGuy Sales. They've got them on sale for $1189.99 and "free" shipping. They tack on $10 for insurance and Speedway Sales wanted $1199 + $30 insurance. Looking a little closer I found Yamaha also offers a YG2800i which is on sale for ten dollars less. The YG is the "heavy duty" version so, you might ask, "Why not go that route?" Comparing the two it seems the main differences are the YG has a GFI circuit built in (good), has a "heavy duty frame" which adds two cross bars (2 lbs) but the kicker is that it only comes with a 1 year warrantee. The EF model has a 2 year warrantee for home use, 6 months for commercial use.
I also learned that the 30A outlet is twist lock rather than the "standard" RV plug... sigh Maybe I'll rewire the plug on the TT to match. All the full hookup campgrounds I've been at (except maybe the State Park?) have had the twist lock recepticle as an option. Isn't that what the newer trailers are coming with? Seems like the better option. Boats exclusively use the twist lock since pulling on the cord is a given.

Now the question is what conversion kit to install. Should I go dedicated propane/CNG or keep the gasoline option available?

I use a 300eui with my 13.5 ac all the time, seems to pull lights just fine at the same time, usually have the fridge on propane. As far as portability, putting it on wheels helps a bunch, especially when hefting it into the truck bed, all you need to do is get one wheel on the tailgate and from there it's pretty easy for my 56 year old back. so far.......

I talked to the local Airstream dealer this week. She told me the Honda EU 3000is will NOT run an Airstream 13.5 A/C. It takes 2 2000's. I have heard this from others also. But I called the dealer to check it out.
