Change the oil often and DO NOT leave gas in it, run it all out every time. And keep it out of the rain. I see people mount 'em on the hitch and don't cover 'em all the time, not good. Get a wheel kit and a long cord so you can put it inside and roll it away to take loudnest away. The thing with with the cheepies is durty power so flickery lites and cruddy chargers. Always a trade off.
I just bought the same generator and used it at a race last weekend for 2 days. For the price it is quiet, not Honda quiet but quieter than most,it shocked me how quiet it was though. Power seemed to be clean no flickering lights, chargers worked very well. So far so good very happy with it. Have not tried to see if it will pull an AC unit yet but in some of the reviews said it will on long with other things. For the money so far I am happy with mine.

You just want to be able to paint your finger nails pink and run around in your birthday suite at the track....that's how you roll. lol You can beat me up at PNB for saying that.

I have been considering the toy hauler route myself. Does anyone have any experience using one? Are they more trouble to keep clean with you and your racing buds tracking in and out? Are all the emenities worth the hassle? I have been looking and thinking about getting one. So, any feedback is much appreciated....

But your trailor is very clean and nice looking simple, functional and perfect. I also want to know what size it is and what did you use on the floor??

Floor ......ribbed garage floor mat (sams club) $175
Cabinets...... Husky from Home Depot (staggered the work stations) plastic to help keep weight down $400
