Hot water heater replacement

Where can I find a replacement 6gal water heater for my 83 27ft Excella?All I can find do not have the same flange and are a white door.
Is there such a thing as tankless for these coaches?

Yes. Look at Atwood knockoffs or a Precision Temp 550 series.

I have a Precision Temp 550 and love it. It's slightly taller than the 6 gallon Atwood but I was able to easily fit it into my AS in a couple hours. Recommended if your family loves hot long showers....

I put a 6 gallon Atwood in my 1988. I was able to use the old Al door in place of the white one. I like the heater. I personally do not like the on demand or tankless heaters.
