So there's no wheel kit.. You can but wheels and axels and other stuff and make your own wheel kit.

A Wheelchair hoist will lift it into truck.
65 pounds is still a one hand load for me.


Home is where I park it.

Another option is to make a mount that goes on the A-frame and just leave the generator there...for the most part, no need to move it.

the 'suitcase-type' inverter generator we just got weighs just enough (with fuel, about 65 lbs) and is just awkward enough in shape and size to make it unpleasant to lug around from the house to the truck or to lug around the campsite....unfortunately, this one doesn't have wheels and there's no wheel kit available

Came up with the idea of just putting it in a wagon if I had to take it a ways...but that seems 'tippy', and impractical over anything but a paved surface

Has anyone come up with a work-around?


This is a out of the box idea, camping world sells a fixed steel platform that installs above the trailer tougue.

You said "we". Free, and easy to store, couple sticks, straps, ropes, whatever makes handles for 2 people to carry it. No concern about storage of a dolly, type of terrain, etc.

I have one of the light, folding 2 wheel dollies and it is great and so handy. It will handle 100# plus with ease.
