Can't help you on this one. The generator compartment in the front is the only outside storage on my unit, so I didn't want to fill it with a genny.

Have a genny but mines a 5th wheel so not comparable, I did find this after some google searching though. It's a 27 but think the 29 is similar



EDIT, after re reading the post, I think maybe you ment on the front hitch frame around the batteries? There is some on the site, sure they will post up.

Had a welder fabricate and weld a receiver to the rear just under the bumper. Use a "Geardeck17" to haul and operate my Champion 3100 inverter. The Geardeck17 has a slide out mechanism and the top half cover can be propted open to allow air flow and provide rain protection. There is a nice video on YouTube (search Geardeck17).

Nothing like adding 150# to 200# to your tongue weight! Also, if that's the way one would choose to go, then why not convert the generator to propane since the tanks are right there anyway. Most conversions still retain the gasoline option so an extended fuel gas option could be used for longer term stays.

I think the OP has a truck that will do it easily. Good idea about the propane, though... not only for the fuel, located right there, but for the lack of noxious fumes. I found this at HD, which I don't need, but such I good buy, I might not be able to resist... he-he. As for me, I might haul it on the tongue, but running... it can't stay there. I'm sensitive to 68db and constant unnecessary bouncing and shaking You could buy one for 1/6 of the cost of a Honda 3000 and then put some of that savings in soundproofing.
