Generator question

I have a 4000 propane Onan generator in an Avion I don't use any more. I purchased a used 2003 35' Dutchman toy hauler.

It has no generator and I was going to purchase a small portable one. However, I was wondering if anyone has put that large a generator in their 2003 unit, how they did it and what it takes to hook it up to the electrical system, or should I stay with a portable one?

Thanks,
Biil

Looking back I would have Gotten our voltage Generator ready but without generator ready but without the generator I would’ve gone Honda or predictor (these are very quite)and ran them in parallel if your trailer is generator ready meaning from fuel tank to wiring I had a friend who also did that and installed an onan that he had sitting around and worked out for him. All our best from FLA

Thanks for the information.

After some second measurements, I decided the Onan would be to big. Going to buy a portable.
