Honda 2000 !!!
If you want to run the AC just get 2 of them with the parallel cable kit. For the times you don't need the AC then you can just run one of them (you'll want one of the "Companion" model with the 30A connector). That will give you the best flexibility.
I had a Honda 3000 before and it worked with the AC but its WAY bigger unit and just hard to store and move around and for when you don't need the AC its overkill.

You can't go wrong with the Honda and any nearby campers will love that you invested in a quiet generator. You'll just be mad that you now have to listen to people with the Champion and Generac models instead.

I just read all these threads and they were very helpful as I am looking to run a small a/c in a 17C Jayco sport. The question I have now is what is the difference between an inverter and a generator and which is better for an RV?

Inverter is a A generator inverter puts out clean power and it is suitable to run sensitive electronics with it. Inverter Benny's are usually quieter.

...she started talking about how I never listened to her or somethin, I donno, I wasn't really paying attention...

I have the Honda eu2000i. I only have a 5000BTU AC in my 184BH and it runs it just fine.

Very quiet and will last all day on a tank of gas.
