High Output Alternator instead of generator?

I did some searching but didn't really find a discussion on this.

Wouldn't it be less expensive, less noisy, less polluting, more convenient, to put a high output alternator on the tow vehicle instead of a gas powered generator?

Something like this:
220AMP Alternator for Imports and Domestics - Fitzall-220 |

Is there a limitation with the 7-pin connector that would prevent this?
