Always the quattro, makes your life so much easier with dual inputs. And less to go wrong with a single inverter vs parallel setup (easier install).

Thank you. Figured getting an extra 1000w inverter power for a cheaper price was too good to be true. Lol

Dual inputs aside, having two inverters does offer some redundancy if one of them were to have an issue. Depending on how you travel, that might be worth quite a bit.
