96PSD, and I just happen to have a Grainger account. I don't have any pictures of the rig in this configuration, (I manage a photolab), I'm alittle like the plumber, always has leaky faucets. When you do it for a living the hobby goes out of it. Will try and get something shot early next season. Right now the boats at the riggers for canvas work, and the fiver's in storage. But. . .I received my boat registration application in the mail today, got my heart pumping some.

Cheers, Steve J.

Bearman,

Did you ever find a way to mount your generator? I'm in the same predicament as you. I'd like to mount my generator but don't have a whole bunch of room in the box. I'd like to mount it on the receiver of the 5'er but I'm not too sure about the weight on the end wobbling around.

Any suggestions from anyone out there, or pictures??

CMC

I was able to finally take some pics of my set-up on the rear of my Cedar Creek. Note there is alot of torque weight that can bounce around. So I cut off my old bumper that was a piece of box tin and cheap C channel bars, and welded steel box tubes to the RV frame and 1/8" (I think it was that thickness) box steel bumper and then used 2 receiver hitches to hold custom made gear rack. http://irv2.com/photopost/showphoto....cat=509&page=3 http://irv2.com/photopost/showphoto....cat=509&page=3

Wow, is this an old thread, I don't even have that 5'er and generator anymore, as a matter of fact that was 2 trailers ago. I ended up mounting mine in my front compartment on slides to move it in and out. The compartment door was to short, so I cut it at both ends all the way to the floor of the compartment, then I used a piano hinge and put it all back together and weather striped it all. I mounted the slide in the compartment, then mounted the genny to the slide.
Cheers
Bear

Alot of good idea's and here is one more option. I cut off the rear bumper, then went to a tubing supply place. I got two peices of square tubing that would fit just inside the steal that was holding the bumper and slide into what was left on the trailer after removing the bumper. I welded the bumper back on but put nuts and bolts through the rig side incase I ever want to take it off. I painted it so it looks like it came that way. I then decked the added space with TRex that matches the color of one of the stipes on the rig. I then bolted down the generator on the side where the plug comes out of the rig. The Honda is now in a spot were there is the least chance of CO2 of coming inside the trailer. The platform now also holds our BBQ and Fresh water container. Soon 2 large tool boxes will also be back there once the match the trailer. Just a point here. I have added lights to the bumper since it sticks out a bit. I have been getting some nice compliments on it. AC covers do a good job on the 3000's. I hope this helps.
