After checking every thread that I could find on this forum for months I took the advise of the majority. I use a Honda 2000i and a Honda 2000i Companion in tandem when running AC and just one when charging the batteries. They each way about 50 lbs and that makes it easier to move them around. They fit neatly under the bed cover of my pickup which makes the front AC plug on the Airstream very handy.

Another benefit to having two 2000i generators besides saving your back is that you can leave one home if you know you're not going to need A/C.

50,000 watts.
We could probably narrow it down a little if we knew if your trailer has one or two air conditioners, 30 or 50 amp, what utilities you are planning to operate, and what accessories on your truck you are planning to power with the generator.
Meddle not in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy, and taste good with ketchup.

That two thousand would buy a solar system.
I did and now leave my 2000 Honda's at home after several trips and didn't use them.
On long trips I still take one to recharge (I like boondocking) just in case, but haven't had to use it yet. Just don't save money on buying a small system.

If you want to run air conditioning(1 unit) you'll need 3000 watts generator capacity or more. This can be 2x2000watts in parallel. You want to be sure you have a 30amp type outlet on the generator. If you buy a 3000w genny with 2x 15amp outlets it won't help much. A 3000w should fit in the bed and you can run it from there.
