The hot ticket would be to get 2 honda 2000 watt generators. They are easy to carry, and youn will only need both of them if you want to run your AC. They have a parrallel kit that connects them together. If you know you will not be running your AC, just bring one. light, and can store just about anywhere. I sold my honda 3000 EU and went this route. Now I have 4000 watts if I need them. Just a suggestion. Should run you about 1000.00 for each Gen, and 200 for the parrallel kit

Hope this helps

I've got a Yamaha 2800 Inverter that runs on propane. Being an inverter generator it will back down to an idle if not loaded. Only problem is when it does load up there is some lag time. The larger Yamaha's have a battery for starting and to handle the surge. The big ones are expensive. Mine will run about 12 hours on a 20 lb bottle of propane. I like the propane because I carry inside a Coleman popup and I don't gasoline smell inside. If I had much more to run it would not be enough power. It cost me around $1400 delivered to Austin.
I like the idea of 2 2000 watts running in parrallel. There might be times when you don't need to carry both units.
Good luck
