Cool Heater exhaust heat exchanger

Anyone use a heat exchanger to recover some of the heat in the exhaust of the propane heater? There is a lot of heat in the exhaust going to waste.

RVs are a tradeoff of weight and cost vs. energy efficiency given that weight, particularly, has a cost in terms of fuel economy while towing.

Also at a certain point of capturing exhaust heat you'll have to deal with condensation.
