2800W Champion Duel Fuel from Costco. We chose that having similar rig to you with one AC. Competively Quiet, great build quality, Electric start and almost 0 fumes as we now prefer to always use propane for above reasons. Analyzed Honda and Yamaha versions for months and VERY pleased with this version of Champion. Many others on this forum agree. Ol' standards great as well.

Happy camping.

And I carry my genny on a cargo carrier mounted on a front hitch of my tow vehicle. As a general rule I chain the generator to the hitch carrier before a trip, and that is where it stays for the duration. Don't have a picture of the generator on the carrier but this picture should give you the idea. If you tow with a van or suv I believe the front hitch to be a necessity.

I am curious why no one is using the 2000 gen set from Northern Tool. It is just a drop noisier than the Honda but everything else the same. Cost is $599.

I was running a 2000 Honeywell before buying a Honda 2000 from a friend. I was impressed with the Honeywell until I bought the honda, the Honda starts easier and was way more quiet. Staring down having to buy a second honda to run the ac led me to the yamaha 2400. For me it was a common sense choice, one generator burning fuel verses two. While the specs show the Honeywell is only a decibel or two louder than the honda or yamaha, the actual difference in sound level is very noticable. I never had anyone complain over the Honeywell noise level but sure sleep better with the yamaha running. Inside the trailer you can't hear the yamaha/honda with it right off the backside of the trailer, the Honeywell produced a noticable "hum" inside the trailer.

One of the most important thing is the WEIGHT, Honda is under 50lbs, the lightest and the quietest on the market.

Test yourself, How much dead weight can you pick up??

GenConnex Direct is the best deal and with propane you do not need to carry gas and be refilling it all the time, has best warrantee.

It will run on propane, run one of my ACs, and is quiet. All for $1100.
The link is no longer any good. What is the make and model of the generator, please.

POI... 3db louder is twice as loud, most people won't notice a 5db change.

Disclaimer...we have used a 2000i dual fuel,(US Carb) Honda since 2006. No quality/mechanical concerns at all.
Plus many Honda Power Equipment outlets across the Country if there is a problem.

In audio, doubling the power is a 3dB increase but to double the amplitude of the sound pressure level -twice the volume - is a 6 dB increase
