Anyone using a van lithium system as home backup?

I have a Coachman Nova Li3. I want to use it as an emergency home backup. What would it take to run 30amp power connection OUT of the inverter?

Ford is coming out with a new all-electric pickup that will offer this feature.

Iím not an expert but I think you would need a 5000w inverter and about 500ahís of batteries that would still only last about 30 minutes.
