Just a point.
The OP is asking about INVERTER generators, not noisy open frame/ contractor generators.

I’ve been using Champion generators now for the last 4 years started out with the 2000W inverter, then went to the 3100W inverter and now I have the 3400W inverter. Not a single issue with any of them just sold off what I did not need then upgraded. Champion has a 3500W inverter that can run off gas or propane “duel fuel” model wish I had gotten that one (may upgrade next year) but it was out of stock and I couldn’t wait. I can run one 15BTU ac all the lights, pump and it’s fine no issues at all.

Well, you guys just squashed B&S. Looks like Cabella's is about the best price so far which is surprising. I used to run our class C 15K BTU AC with all the old incandescent lighting, etc quite nicely from a 4K Onan. Our newfangled LED laden 13.5K BTU AC ought to run quite nicely off of a 3500W and if we need more, get another and bridge them. Thanks to all for all the suggestions and assistance.

Yep... for those that missed the link, here are photos of the B&S INVERTER gennys. I had not see these before but they do look interesting.

I have seen these they are not totally new. Only down side is who wants to carry two of them? Seems like a hassle one 3400/3500W seems like it would work just fine for most RVers.

Many like the convenience of being able to lift two smaller, lighter units rather than one bigger, heavier. Keep in mind, the COMBINED output of two in parallel is usually a bit more than a single unit. The two B&S referenced here are capable of 4800 watts in parallel.

Many also like to be able to run just one unit when power requirements call for the capabilities of just one unit.
