Recommendations for converter?

This question goes out to everyone who has upgraded or built an electrical system from scratch. What are your recommendations for a 30 amp converter. I was thinking about the Progressive Dynamics 4045 all in one unit. Pros/Cons?

I just installed a PD4045 in our Uhaul but haven't really tested it, just a two night weekend trip. It has 12 wires out the back for the 12 volt circuits, they are numbered to match the fuses inside. A couple of the wires were labeled wrong, they didn't match up with the fuse numbers so check that out if you get one. It has room for 4 breakers, one is used as the main, I used another to power the converter section, that left two for lights and outlets.

As mentioned earlier, I have installed five of the PD-4045's without any problems whatsoever. Haven't seen any mislabeled wires either.
