Forgot the biggest point. If you plan to use high end electronics, pricey laptop, etc. Get an inverter generator or you can be sorry.

Research the differences. Major.

The OP has a hybrid TT and posted the question in the Hybrid TT section, so suggesting an Onan doesn't help him.

For the same money you can have a pair of EU2000is's, parallel kit, and ~1000 more watts in a package one person can manage(~50 lbs each)

Yamaha 2400i. Kind of heavy, but quiet and clean power.

Yamaha EF2800i

Runs AC no problem, dependable, economical, big gas tank, light weight (68lbs) but a few decibels louder than smaller Yamaha's / Honda's. No one has ever complained about the few extra decibels.

The 3000 Yamaha's and Honda's weigh 150lbs. No thanks! And I don't want 2 smaller ones in parallel.

We use the on board Onan 4000. The noise level is OK but not as quiet and Honda. The 2000s are cool but soooo easy to steal. Even cabled last year one of our group found the heaviest cable money can buy cut ALMOST through. Evidently something scared them off. That fellow says in a pinch he can run his 13,500 btu A/C on one Honda 2000. Someone said use the Honda 3000 as it is way too heavy for one guy to run away with it. If not for the on board unit we would do the Honda 3000. Any INVERTER Generator would be good if you are ok with the noise and they will carry what you want to run.
