Inverter/Generator Run on LP

I am considering an inverter and in my online search and read mission I happened upon Yamaha. They have some that run on LP. That appeals to me since we will have LP with us while camping and would not have to worry about carrying gasoline. My question, has anyone used one of these or the kit they sell to turn other brand inverters to LP running. I'm a total novice when it comes to such things. I have a 25 Safari and use the AC 75 % of the time.

Quite a few folks on the Forums run LP - converted Yamaha inverter generators. Do a search and you will find a bunch of threads on this.

I have one - a 2400 (pre-converted by US Carburetion) and it runs my AC just fine. There seems to be a lot of debate (you'll see in those threads) whether the larger AC units (mine is 11.5k BTU) will run safely off of one of these smaller gensets. Mine does a swell job, but as always, YMMV.
