03 e350 bluebird

Hello everyone, back in September I purchased a 2003 bluebird on the ford van chassis. I've been slowly converting it to travel in with the girlfriend, while living inside full time- talk about a pain. So far I have the bed elevated, kitchen built, benches installed and drapes things like that done.

Some things I would greatly appreciate some input on would be
1. I bought a champion normal 3800 watt gen for batt charging on blm land but where would yall recommend mounting the thing I was assuming a welded rack somewhere?
2. Also I plan on something like 4 golf cart batteries for electricity does anyone know of a good brand?
3. Any suggestions or advice?
I also need rack of some kind for a dirt bike

Some of the pics are hard to see I'll get better ones

Thanks alot!

Unless the genny has an electric starter you'll need to mount it somewhere accessible so you can get at the pull starter. A rear mounted "back porch" would work but leaves the thing out there to be stolen. An undercarriage box with a door in the bus skirt would be great but requires a bit of cutting and welding.

Trojan is proven name for deep cycle golf cart batteries but others are also good (interstate, etc).

The back porch thing could be used for the dirt bike also.
