Need help finding new hot water heater to fit 1968 tradewinds

Old tank has hole and welding seems out of the question with location of hole. Any recommendation on what h20 heater to use as the old one was tough to get through the existing hole?

thanks in advance!

Measure the hole for the water heater

You old heater model number would help

SAVE THE DOOR FROM YOUR OLD HEATER!!!!!!!!!! The new door will most likely be white.

Google …...Suburban RV water heater…..and….Atwood RV water heater.

They should have a chart with the dimensions….or their phone number

OR RV Parts and Accessories for Sale - PPL Motor Homes

Or call Inland RV...Toll-Free: 800-877-7311 ( Airstream Specialists/Experts )

You could have a new heater on your doorstep in a matter of days

Thanks for the reply! So it does not sound like there is a list of recommended hot water heaters by year and type.

that would be nice as I have worked with Vintage Trailer Supply a couple times and they have tracked some parts by year and model. I say this as the hole that the water heater goes in barely fits the original hot water heater
