How often will you be running the AC? If the answer is most of the time then get the bigger unit. If the answer is maybe once every 5 trips, or less, then get the 2 2000's.
I have a different brand but hooking up the 2 2000's takes time, one more thing to setup and take down every trip, and I dont need AC that often.
That being said, I bought a 3100 watt unit with remote start and love it! I was worried about the gas usage but not that big a deal. And you can run it on econ when you are not needing the AC. I also trip the 120v breaker for the fridge so it just stays on Propane.

I currently have 2-2000's and they work fine for the 13.5K AC and the micro at the same time. I also have the extended Berg tank. I believe that Berg tank is 5gal. I bought these because I can move them around easier that lifting the larger units. I did borrow a Yamaha 3000 to test and it was really quiet and smooth. It was just too heavy to lift for us.

I am in same boat. 2 Honda 2000 vs Yamaha 30iseb. Haven't made up my mind yet for my 29hfs.

We bought 2 eu2000i almost 10 years ago. Never have a lack of power for whatever we need. We also utilize a 6 gallon auxillary feeder tank so you never have to worry about adding fuel to a hot generator.

The 3000 won't be able to run as much simultaneously but does have the advantage of remote start/stop if you buy the model with that option.

We would buy the 2 2000s again in a heart beat.

3000 will run AC and lights, etc. Heavier to load in TV alone than 2 2000s. In winter, cooler weather, one 2000 will probably be all you need. Fuel consumption in two 2000s versus one 3000 and noise level is something to consider. Either way you've picked a great brand of gen.
