They are heavy and a welded rear hitch mount would be expensive and may not work well with the balance with less tongue weight. You may find that two Hondas would cost the same as 1 3000 watt gen and a custom carrier and they would be quiet to run, easy to carry (50#) and handy to store. I find them handy because unless I need to run the A/C I only use 1 gen. (save about $300 for 2 at Wise Sales over Camping World)
Loud generators are price effecient but quite disturbing at quiet campsites for hours on end.
As a point of reference: At high draw I get about 3 hours running both gen's for the A/C. That would get expensive for A/C full time. I get about 8 hours with 1 gen with low power draw.
