I use the same rack that dewey02 posted. I did modify the rack a little to make it more sturdy. I have the generator bolted to the rack with security bolts, 2 padlocks and 2 cable locks. I cover the generator with an outboard motor cover from Bass Pro when towing and throw a cheap plastic grill cover over it when the trailer is stored.
I was going to build a fancy awning over it so I could run it in the rain. We were at a tailgate one weekend and it started raining. I got in the storage compartment and found one of my $7 beach umbrellas. Bunch of bungee cord and a couple of spring clamps later I had the generator protected from the rain with plenty of free air circulation. I decided that would be my "fancy" generator awning from now on. Works great.
The eu3000is runs my 15K A/C, microwave, converter and refer all at the same time just fine. I told my wife to not run the microwave when the A/C is on and she said "why not, I've been doing it all weekend". I just said OK then.
Those eu7000 generators are the quietest of all. I know folks like to say their "X" brand is just as quiet as a Honda but if you spend an hour wandering around a football tailgate lot you can actually hear almost all brands running. In my opinion, nothing is a quiet as a eu Honda. I don't care what the specs say.
