When we heard the Yamaha 3000 run, it's super quietness made an impression.
We looked into ways to use and carry one. Here is the result:

IMHO: thats alot of extra tongue weight and as far forward on the tongue as you could get. I'd be VERY concrened about altering the trailers 'towability'????

That was my thought also, but I was looking at the Oliver site.

First, the tongue length is adjustable, so as long as the tongue itself isn't structurally overloaded, that trailer can carry more than the usual.

Second, Oliver lists the tongue weight as 240 lbs, exactly 10% of the dry weight of 2400 lbs, so it can stand a bit more when loaded, perhaps, depending on where the load it.

Sure beats trying to hang it out on the back!!!

Personally, I would have gone with a smaller generator (lighter and perhaps quieter).

On Edit -- I see the Yamaha 3000 is actually quieter than the Honda 2000!
