The Honda EU 6500is has an oil change interval of 100 hours or 6 months BTW. You may have been confused by the initial break-in interval.
Where I live in Mariposa CA our dump has lot's of Generac gear in a pile. I am not saying that the models you like are in that pile but....
I have one client who may have never changed the oil on a 6500i

Since I will have canisters of 24g of propane, 0.7g/h of propane would allow that canister to last for 34 hours of continuous runtime. I can probably live with that

Youre kidding right? 24 gals of propane in 34 hours. And youre talking about long runtimes. Sounds not really like a holiday!
With your solar shade issues, theft, part time use investment etc, id be looking at a genset/battery/inverter combo. Run the genset hard and fast then turn it off. One 80W panel to keep the battery topped while your gone.
no one is going to take this without someone noticing...
