Best brand Furnace?

Well, after reading Inland Andy's post on how International Oil Burner is a time bomb just waiting to go off. Well I do have the Int. Oil Brnr#1525 and while I'm replacing the H2O heater, I'll just replace both! It's on my 1965 Overlander Int. Any Info would be great!
Jeff

I took an International Oil Burner TTG 1125 furnace out, and plan to replace it with a Suburban NT model.

Suburban also makes a low profile SF model.

Not an endorsement asI haven't installed it yet. I think most new Airstreams use a Suburban furnace.

Greetings To all and Merry Chrismas,
I would stay with the Surban heater. It works great in my 1985 Sovereign.
The problem as I see it put in what will fit without to many modifactions.
Regards Russell

You got that right. Minimum modifications. I too have pulled the old International, which looks perfect, but have reviewed the comments on a 40+ year unit. So, which one to replace it with? Surburan or Atwood?
I've found the pricing is all close. Seems Atwood, the Excalibur 8500 series has come up with a quieter fan system with less amp draw than previous models. Also seems the good deals are for last years model with the higher amp draw.But the question still remains, which model will retrofit the best in a vintage coach?
Can anyone share an experience of swaping out an International for a newer one?

Ed

Can't comment on swapping out a new for old furnace but I will offer this observation: The Suburban models are extremely easy to remove and service compared to the Atwoods, which IMHO are a royal PIA.

Good enuf

Thanks Lew,
Went with the Suburban NT24SP. They don't seem to offer a door for the exterior so The only opening is just for the two things coming out the back? Course there's nothin' else there so I answered my own question. Ya would think that "they" would post a PIC of what it looks like on the side of a coach as oppossed to a solid looking box for sale purposes. It'll be here in a week or so.
