Hi Andy,

What DO you recommend for mounting generators to an Airstream? While 46+ Lbs might not be heavy to you, it can be heavy to the point of being impossible to lift/move by others, especially people with disabilities, and generators are a must to run the AC in FL during the hottest months!

Thanks for the info on the A-frame though!

Note this is a very old thread.

I've carried a Honda 1000 on top of the battery box on a 20'. Now we have a 25' and it fits in the rear storage compartment.

Depending on what size propane cylinders are on the coach and how much propane you would use you could reduce the size of the cylinders.
Using steel propane as an example: When full.
40# bottle weighs about 70# when full. X2 = 140#
30# bottle weighs about 55# when full. X2 =110#
20# bottle weighs about 40# when full. X2 = 80#

If you have 40# bottles and went to 20# bottles that's 60# off of the tongue. Add back the material weight of a generator mounting platform plus the 46# weight of the generator and you are about even.

You could use one 40 pound cylinder and replace the other one with a 2000 generator. Mount it where the second cylinder would be.

Can Am RV has a mounting solution for the 2000i. I've seen it in the Airsteam Life magazine as an advertisement too.

Yes, they make a solution specifically for the Honda 2000.

Put a front receiver hitch on your TV. You can then use a cargo carrier on the front of a suv for generator/ice chest transport. I purchased my front hitch from etrailer.

And by the way the Yamaha 2400 generator will run my entire camper including the rooftop, the Honda 2000 couldn't start my rooftop. The Honda is a little quieter than the Yamaha but not by much.

Take a good look at the new Briggs and Stratton 3000 Watt and the 2000 Watt inverter generators before you make a final decision.
