You can get a 5500 diesel Cummins Generator in a 36' Class A. I have a 36PBD Monaco Neptune and it has a 5500 diesel generator. Don't know what year they stopped putting it in but that is what we have.
Sorry for my bad info, when I had DP is had a 7500 and I thought based on the manual 6500 was the smallest.

36' DP 275 HP Cummins and 6 speed Allison with a Freightliner chassis. No stability issues towing. A little underpowered but not an issue. LP generator with its own tank and will run everything in the MH. Diesel generator would be easier but LP was not a deal breaker and it is quieter than any of the gas or diesel generators in camp. Most DP that size will have a 5,000 lb. hitch so plan on reinforcing it.

I choose to stay at the 36' length so I could stay under the 65' total length with trailer or toad. Lots of good rigs available in your price range.


Our 33.3 34.5' has a 10K hitch but as a practical matter, we are restricted due to GCWR to less than that.
