Just returned from 2 week trip through the Rockies including Banff, Jasper, Radium Hot springs in Canada, then 5 days in West Glacier area. Used my new Champion dual fuel with my portable 20lb tank the whole way; total around ~20 hours runtime, and still had 4 lbs left when I went to fill.
I have a tri-fold cover, which I fold up when generator is in use; this trip I had my kayaks also this trip so cover was 2/3rds folded the whole trip but provided good cover for the generator while traveling. When using the Champion, I simply lift the end handle and roll it out from under the tri-fold, connect to propane and it works fine. I have a rubber mat liner for the bed. I did lift it out and used on the ground for 4 nights since at that sight I could run all day and wanted to use the truck; 95lbs with the two handles was not that difficult for me. (yet)
The sound meter showed comparable ratings at 20 feet 56-59db. I asked my neighbors in Canada if the noise bothered them, and was told no, very quiet.
Nice not to carry gas....
I am now working on the hose connection to the QD on the front of the Airstream for extended use. (Now that adventure is still challenging...not an off the shelf hose item, I am finding out!)
