Mike's right, that compartment door is not big enough for a generator, even the 1 KW models.
What kind of tow vehicle are you using? If you have a pickup truck, you can use a Rubbermaid Roughneck tote box inverted over the generator to completely protect it from severe weather. I have done this with my 2KW Honda generator for several years with no problems. It is even possible to loop a chain and lock through the handle of the generator before you put the tote on for extra security. Once the tote is in place and other stuff is packed in around it, the generator is totally invisible and well protected from the weather.
These three packers will fit neatly between the wheelwells of a pickup truck (49" space.) As you can see, with the tote in place, the generator is not visible at all. Interestingly, the three packers are all the same height so it is possible to pack other gear on top of them, nice and level.
