Keep in mind you will void your warranty if you install a hitch. I didn't care and boy did it come in handy hauling my Honda 3000 generator. A frame doesn't need that much generator but $600 for a brand new in the box for 2 years Honda I couldn't resist.
I also added a shelving unit behind the stove by cutting the legs down from an over the the toilet set of shelves. When traveling I either put it on the floor or bed It really gives me a lot of storage room for often used items like a paper towel rack, coffee, cereal, etc. I keep the portapotti under the bench seat during the day & retrieve it for night use only
I do use a WD hitch & pull with a Honda minivan.

Whenever I think my camper is too small, I just refer to this photo of its interior. Big enough for a (small) party!

I have a t21qbhw and a Honda 3000. Let's see a picture of your set up. Sounds like something I should check into .

yep thanks, not concerned on warranty that much -- some storage platform mod to back of camper is high on the list after purchase... will have to find a good fabricator to do it.. with with hitch add-on - platform could have a swing away feature from some use while parked..

still thinking on the generator bit -- 2 honda 2000's in parallel with supplemental dual feed tank versus single 3000 -- lifting and slepping 150 lbs sol is not appealing

I do look forward to lots of use when I retire next year -- both solo and with friends on occassion

thanks

I use a Honda EU3000 because I already have it as a Home power back-up. If I were to do it again, I would choose a pair of 2000's. I have to load and unload the 3000 with a winch attached to a portable A frame hoist support.

I could actually get by with a single 2000, because my A/C is only 10K Btu.

How many times are you going to use the coolcat to warm or cool....i never use it ...except for extreme conditions...like Georgia a couple of years ago when it hit 90f in the early mornings.
I have agood quality generator sitting in the basement....never been used....think create a breeze fan...and a excellent quality dual battery system . ...and save your back.
