Very happy with my electric start Yamaha power boost 3500. Runs everything except microwave and A/C together. It wieghs #140 but is on four wheels and is easy to handle. I made a diamond plate mount with tie downs just inside my ramp door. I can easily move it up and down the ramp when I use it. Would have mounted it on the accesory ramp on the hitch but nearing max hitch weight with spare mounted under hitch.

your invoice should state which a/c it came with, unless you bought used.

My wife and I also glamp with our Flagstaff 27RLWS. We tried dry camping for the first time on a beach in MA. I brought along our Champion 3500 that is our emergency home generator and although it diid the job, it was noisy! We meet an number of people at the campground and the Honda, that was recommmended in earlier replies, is the way to go. We would have to walk right up to the unit to hear if it was actuallly running.

The second consideration is the total amount of draw that you will be using at any one time. Coffee makers, like my Kurig, draw an incredible amount of juice. Anything that generates heat, like hairdryers and vaccum cleaners are hogs. look at the appliances that you think that you will be running simultaneously and add up the total power needed. That should give you a starting point.

I don't think they have a ramp, they need an engine lift to put it in their truck, or something similar. I vote for the 2K honda or Yamaha's Champion makes stacking unit that are pretty quiet also, as has been posted here.

If you want to run the a/c I would recommend as others above two 2000 generators to be coupled. Easier to carry/handle. Brandwise either Honda or Yamaha. And bare in mind with a/c running no microwave!!
