Generator for 368 RLBHK

I'd like to get a generator for my new 368 RLBHK.

What size should I get to run both ac units, lights, etc?

I mean, I bet a 10kw generator capable of a 50 amp connection would do it, but I'd like to do it as cheaply as possible.

Mainly this is for when it's at my house. I don't have a place to park it that's close to power.

Price has more to do with generator type: inverter vs open-frame.

If you'll be in a campground, an inverter generator is preferable since they are much quieter.

If it'll only be used at home and you don't care about noise, any open frame contractor-style generators generator will do. They're cheaper, even for one with 4000w or more, which is what you'll need to run both a/c's.
