I'm looking for a camper ~22 feet long. Prefer double axle, 4 seasons, onboard generator. Any suggestions for me? TIA

Everything but a generator

Look at the Coachmen Freedom Express (192RBS).  I has your exact size and dual axles.  It has plenty of room to store a small, quiet inverter.  Four seasons???  Not so much.

You might find that unicorn but it will surely not be four season. Even an ice fishing rv is not four season as it has no air conditioning.

Buy a 22ft double axle and have a welding shop install a box on the a-frame for a generator, then add tank heaters.

Problem with getting a turn-key unit is most people looking at small trailers aren't looking for 4season and generators. They want light weight for marginal tow vehicles and they don't want to lose storage in such a small unit.

Why would one go through that expense and all the modifications needed to make it a turn key setup?  Especially when there are so many campers with built in gennys in that size range?

I guess unless the guy just wants to pack a portable genny with. In which case nothing need to be done besides throw a genny and a cord in the back of the truck along with a gas jug. 

-move LP tanks (where?)

-add genny

-add fuel tank or can storage

-re wire

-modify framing

That's the point...there aren't any in that size range with a built in Genny and the other requirements.

While it sounds like a lot, it's a pretty simple change to add a rack above the propane tanks for a portable generator (they even have premade bolt on versions...no need to move the propane tanks and hardwiring it into the trailer would purely be optional.

22 feet long with 2 axles and a generator - you’re looking for a unicorn.

Agree that 4 seasons is sort of a unycorn. I’d really think hard about how much the winter provisions are worth vs how cold and how many nights in the cold. 
But 22’ and onboard generator is nowhere near being a unicorn in bp toyhaulers 

OP take a look at small toyhaulers. You get more cargo capacity and higher rated axles that everyone complains about with a lot of TTs and common built in gennys with fuel tanks. 
Bonus is generally more “space” inside due to the open concept. Even more important in a smaller camper.

Just moved on from a 25ft toy hauler....interior accommodations aren't close to similar size travel trailers plus it pretty much rules out slide outs making it drastically smaller.
