Hi, folks. I just ordered my first truck camper, a Capri Rodeo Deluxe weighing in at 1150 lbs. with shower, frig, mw, queen bed, etc. Its the low end of the spectrum, but I travel alone. Those of you looking for a well equipped light camper, for a 1/2 ton truck, check them out. $9450 brand new.
Anyway, I always need a/c living in the middle of Texas near Austin. It's 108 today, highest ever recorded. So I was wondering how to carry a generator to run the a/c. In this case the ac is only a 9200 btu Coleman, so I bought a 2400 watt Yamaha RV model. It weighs in at 75 lbs.
After much thought, and several false starts, I came up with the attached, and created it myself with a Hitch hauler, which I shortened, a dog crate and cover, and a swing away hitch hauler frame. The gen is strapped to the hauler with two cargo straps, and a heavy duty chain locks it to the carrier. Also has a locking hitch receiver pin. The only welding done was on the corner stands, for when I have to unhitch the thing when unloading the camper. The photos speak for themselves, but if you have questions I'd be happy to answer with the details. Haven't received my camper yet, but I'm ready when I do.
