We thought about that and we are adding after market heavyweight hinges.

I'm sure it will work just fine while parked. Once you get bouncing along the Country roads may be different story.

The new beefy hinges will hold, but you will require reinforcing the sheet metal they bold-into. Let us know what you go with for Science.

I built a trailer for my generator... Works really well, if you plan to always have a trailer behind you.
