Generator Upgrade

Hey, it's Tessa again.

I've been surviving, and some things have started falling into place.

I finally have long term housing.
It's a 5th wheel RV, which I'll be repaying for a few years, but it's budgeted for, and I'm...trying not to be afraid of being hopeful.

Here's my little home, just waiting for the DMV to get the paperwork.
There's a bit of work that needs done on it, but most of it I can do.

Which brings me to my ask, from you, the community.

I need a generator.
Something that can charge the RV batteries, and power my welder while I make repairs, upgrades, and hopefully help out others in my community.

Previously, I was looking at the Westinghouse WGen7500DF, for $949, but a friend showed me the Firman H08051, which costs slightly less but provides a 50 amp circuit which is what the 5th wheel actually needs.
Either generator gives me options for renewable fuel inputs, and will allow me to stop worrying about power for both home and work.

Please help me get to $871.99, and afford a generator for my new home.

Any excess will be used to obtain materials to secure and connect the generator, or for sustainable fuel source(s).
