In '79 when my bus was converted Onan was about it. My 6.5NH still works like a champ. Buy them on craigslist all day long for $400 to $800. The 6.5 will run two airs and a few other things. Many bad mouth them and have never seen one. For the money you get a good system. As with any genny, just make sure it runs before you buy.

My 1978 revcon has a 5K onan that hasn't missed a beat in all those years, it still runs like a champ and only asks for an oil change now and then and a new set of plugs on occasion or an air filter, the onans were rock solid, I still use mine regularily, I use the revcon to go places that the bus can't due to low hanging branches or rough roads but it's just as confortable on an interstate.

The Onans are also easy to convert to propane.  Many of them come set up for "tri-fuel" (gasoline, LP or natural gas) just by adjusting the carb.
