Yeah. You can't actually buy them like that. The ones you see are aftermarket modifications. You can purchase kits to do your own mods, or like on ebay, folks will do the mods then put them up for sale. One thing to consider is that you're voiding your factory warranty doing that (although some folks that do those mods will give you a "personal" warranty), and secondly, you have to really trust the fella doing the mod... if you don't care to do it yourself.

For some folks it's a very viable option.

We have a 2 AC fiver so we had the Onan 5500 watt quiet generator installed with an 18 gallon marine tank. It is pricey but will run a long time, quiet, and powerful.

Most everything you'll find are inverter types, although some will also have a 12v "converter" as well.

Short story... most all generators will provide regular 120v (household type) electricity. Some will also have a 12v (RV/car) outlet. Personally, I prefer the dual outputs. The 12v usually isn't all that great for charging batteries, but really nice to have to jump start your vehicle or run a portable 12v device. IOW's a great 12v emergency/portable source.
