If I am using the trace xantrez SW series 5500 watt inverter, and I want to
add more watts by adding another true sine wave inverter, do I have to get
another trace 5500 watt inverter to piggy back or can i use a less expensive
model.  Doers it have to be a trace?

       Can you split part of the house to run on the
second one as a separate load?
       It may not be a good idea to parallel them
regardless.

 putting two trace sw or ps series in parallel is commonly done to double the
amps provided. the units must be identical. few other manufacturers have
this feature.

outback power systems is one that also has this feature.
