Do you have propane bottle(s) on the tongue, or just the battery?

I have a Honda 2000, bought not just for camping but emergency and utility use around the house/farm. I like it a lot but it is a (little) heavier than I imagined, and a (little) louder than I imagined. I bought the 2000 because it is large enough to run my (6000 BTU) AC and it was only a couple hundred dollars more than the 1000. That said, I kind of wish I had the 1000 for the smaller size and weight, AC be hanged. And for all I know the 1000 may have ran my AC. My tow is a full size (F150) so the genny rides in the back of the truck on those rare occasions I take it camping.

I have a Honda 1000i. I can't physically deal with the heavier 2000i so for me the decision was easy.

As to installation there are some boxes you could mount on the tongue that will allow you to run the Honda eu2000i Generator inside them.
This one is the most reasonably priced version I have seen. You do need to remove cover plates when you want to run it. It is a custom order so you will have to wait for them to make it.

Here's where I mounted my 2000i on my 1999 17' Casita after moving the propane tanks back one inch and molded the rear of the tank over to provide clearance using a heat gun.
