Yes, it can be done, and has been done on the Silverbacks, at least around us. The reason we didn't do it, is it eats up too much of the CCC for us. We're already within 700 pounds or less of our 15,500 pound max. We just use 2 - Honda EU2000's, and that's not very often.

I installed a 5,500 Onan in my 2011 29RE. Had to replace the plastic cargo floor with metal and beef up the undercarriage. Had to get transfer switch. It took two days to prep camper and install generator, but there was plenty of room. It was not a major task at all. Don't know what resistance dealer would offer, but it can be done with professional looking results.

Hi,

If I was thinking about this, I'd be watching my pin weight as well.

FWIW.

Know it's a little late but thought I would add my 2 cents worth...
We added one in our "used CC" we picked up this winter and I'm still 50/50 on this was a smart move...
I was surprised in the amount of propane it uses...guess as a back up its there...
Think sometimes would have been better adding 2 more solar panels (have 2 120's and 4 6 volts) and 2 more batteries...
Early days for us still with this unit so time will tell!

Around us, they will do the installs with custom stainless fuel tanks and all. But, then you deal with the weight of the fuel and new tank. Several have done this. Just another option if you have the spare CCC.
