Where can I mount generator

I have a small wildwood 185 RB travel trailer.

http://www.jamattrv.com/uploads/inve...1688-36531.jpg


I'm wanting to do a little boondocking so I'm looking at purchasing a dual fuel generator

2800W/3100W Dual Fuel Inverter Generator - Champion Power Equipment

But I would like to permanently mount it to camper. Any suggestions where? I have bicycle rack on rear so can't mount there.
I'm thinking of welding a frame under propane tank where I could slide it in and out as needed and have it locked for security.
I will be purchasing a larger propane bottle and will be running off propane.
I flipped my axles on camper so I have plenty of clearance.

E trailer sells a great bracket that mounts on the tongue over the propane bottles.

I think I would just carry it in the back of the truck so I could space it away from the TT when running it. It might be a little loud right outside the bedroom.

X2.

The Champion Power Equipment model 100204 Dual Fuel inverter generator is powered by a 171cc Champion single cylinder, 4-stroke OHV engine that produces 2800 running watts, 3100 starting watts when powered by gasoline and 2520 running watts, 2800 starting watts when powered by propane.

Since it produces less power on propane, are you sure it will run what you want when using propane?

We have the side mounted window unit which is pretty loud but I may see about making an enclosure for it

We just have a small window unit that doesn't pull much. I've read people using 2000 watt
