For a generator, be sure to get the inverter type like Honda makes.

I have the Eu2000I w/companion and love them, always start on first or 2nd pull too.

Believe it or not, the Predator Inverter generator at Harbor Freight is highly rated. I am in several motorcycle track groups and I have never heard someone give a bad review of them.

Probably best to weld a rack to the trailer frame, although bolting would work if you have space to bolt a large enough flange to the frame to spread the load. Whatever you do, don't use the bumper as it won't support much weight.

I found my generator on Craig's List. Honda 3000is and it was virtually brand new. Still had all the tags on it. Much cheaper than buying new. I like it because the gas tank is big enough to run the AC for 8 hours overnight which is a must in summer in AZ.

The Westinghouse 3500 looks to be an open frame generator which will be very loud. If you plan on mounting on a rack on the rear of the trailer it will probably drive you nuts. As Eagle mentioned you want an inverter generator which for Westinghouse would be the 4500. It will be quiet enough you can still carry on a conversation and if you plan on using a computer it will provide more stable power.

From the Cruiser RV web site:

"CAN I INSTALL A HITCH ON THE REAR OF MY TRAILER?
No, Cruiser RV trailers are not built to accommodate this."

IMO a hitch = any accessory added.

Hi Bro Dean,
We bought the 2000w inverter gen from harbor freight for $500 64db our first year dry camping. It worked great and still does when we need it. But we installed 3 100 w flexible solar panels on ours 2 years ago and have only had to use the gen twice! I take the gen just in case we get a really cloudy day. We always dry camp! its way better than a hookup sight!
