Hi and Welcome to FRF!
Isn't your trailer a park model or destination trailer? And what do you want to run with the generator? How many air conditioners does it have? Is it located in a campground?
You need to provide a lot more information, for a clear answer.

Then a generator with a minimum of 4000w should work. If noise is not a concern, any inexpensive open frame contractor-style generator will work. If noise IS a concern, then look for an inverter generator.
Are you expecting to run it constantly?

It depends
If your RV is never moving and you are going to live in it, then look at something like a 7500 Generac Guardian whole home system using propane or diesel.
If you are just using it a weekend getaway, then a 4000 model would work as long as you don't run everything at once.
