I have fed a 10K unit with my Honda 2000EU..... it wasn't pretty, but once it was running it was no big deal
For a properly insulated Transit 5000BTU should be plenty.
Now, for something completely different I plan on installing a free standing residential unit and building it into a nicely camouflaged compartment.
Do you have an opinion about the Colman Mach 3 PS? Or the Dometic Penguin II?
