Minivan and generator

I am towing with Chrysler T&C minivan.
Trailer is SLX 154BH
I'm thinking about buying generator so that we can run A/C when dry camping.
How do most people carry generator with the above setup ?
Is there some after market generator carrying equipment for 154BH ?

You could get a hitch reciver and bolt it to the rear bumper of trailer and then get a flat carry rack on the back . Good for coolers generators ect.

Here is the reciver that bolts to rear bumper of rv. Not sure if you have a full tube bumper? Just make sure it's all locked up.

Be sure to check what Jayco says is the max weight for your rear bumper. We have an X213, and it's maxed out at 100 lbs. All that gear + the generator can add up fast.

I've also read that having too much weight hanging out too far in the rear can adversely affect handling.

I think anything placed in that rack, considering the leverage being applied, would exceed the safe capability of the bumper. IMO not a wise choice.

thank you for the advise all.
The minvan picture is funny. Maybe I can just go with that setup, and not needing RV after all
