Exact replacement for Suburban NT30MA furnace for 1979 31' Airstream

Does anyone make an exact replacement for the NT30MA furnace of the same dimensions etc, that would allow a drop in replacement?

Hi,

Why don't you call Inland Andy's place? I know he's covered heater interchange before, and they would be the best source of info about this. (I think the SP is the closest match, and, no, it's not a drop-in - if I remember the model number right. Anyway, it gets rid of the pilot.)

Funace replacement

The Suburban NT30SP is about as close as you will find. It fit my Excella 31 with just a little carpentry and sheet metal work. The wiring is a direct fit, but you have to do a bit of plumbing with the gas connection.

Not a direct fit, bolt-in slam dunk, but not rocket science either. It works wonderfully.

I did the same , the only thing different was the gas line moved a bit , pretty simple .
