Why two? Have just he Honda 2000. Runs everything except the AC. (not all at once) We usually kill HW or switch to gas, if running the mirco. If planning for hot weather, I'll have shore power in a park. Two Hondas are twice the weight; twice the cost and twice as noisy.
If a boondocker, two may make sense.
