From SB 395 I see a dealer in north Carson City with several toy haulers. Should be plenty to choose from. I personally didn't want a tongue mounted generator.

If your trailer is a 30amp unit, Id suggest the Honda Eu7000is. If your unit is a 50amp,no doubt, your going to at least need a 5500 onan. Ive had experience with both of these gens,and I still got them. If Honda ever makes a 50amp, Ill get in the line in a heart beat .

I have several generators. My MH has a built in Onan 5500 which works well for me. I also have 2 Honda 2000 W. generators I bought when I bought my first MH 4 years ago. When we go to NASCAR races I take the Hondas along and use 1 just for lights and maybe to recharge batteries but can piggy back the Hondas if we need the AC. The Hondas are quieter and more economical to run than the Onan.
Here at home I have a Briggs and Stratton standby unit 16,500 W. with automatic transfer switching. I have a couple other generators I have accumulated over the years at a reasonable price.
Onan was bought out by Cummins a few years back. You might find it more difficult to find a service center or parts than a Honda unit. Honda has dealers all over the world. Just about every town has a Honda dealer within a few miles.
Either brand would be a good choice.
