It would be helpful to know more about your rig, battery situation and planned usage. Ie. Do you plan to run an inverter? If so, which one. etc.
If you are just wanting to charge your batteries and use your 12v systems, then yes. A 1200watt genny will do the job, but 2000watt would be better. Less run time and you will get a deeper charge.
