New water heater-- Need wood frame?

I am replacing the old Bowen heater in my '70 Sovereign with a New Atwood. The directions for the new heater show wood framing placed around the opening, I guess for stiffening and for something to screw into. Is this framing necessary? The old heater was screwed directly into the outer skin. How about those of you who have replaced water heaters-- did you frame the opening?
