What will you be running? That's the key.

We had 2 - 2000's ported together and they were a thing of beauty ... except when we had the AC running full blast, radio rocking, lights on, both pellet cookers on and when the commercial fridge decided to kick in. The starting of the fridge overloaded the 2000's - thus shutting down the Country Smoker (not good when you're cooking chicken on it).

So we upped to one 3000 and one 2000. Since they are not the same model, they can't be ported together. But the 3000 is enough to run the trailer and the 2000 is way more than enough to run the smokers - and could handle the trailer without the AC if we needed it to.

If you don't have an commercial fridge and smokers that have electronics, the 2-2000's should work great. I'd recommend them over 1 3000 due to weight. Getting 1 3000 in/out of a truck bed is a beast of a job for one person.
