We install Truma models at our shop. Comparative to Atwood and suburban(yuk) tank heaters and the precision temp rv550, they are built with much more quality than the above.

Dependent on water and exterior temp, you will never see less than105dg f.

Propane usage is much much less than an Atwood. They are much quieter as well.

The newest model comfort comes with a multi function rotary switch, so you no longer have to go outside and turn unit on or off or switch it to eco. It also has a defrost heating element to prevent freeze up when propane is not in use.

We handled the installation on KJRitchies trailer, and it was a pretty standard install.

We prefer to use truma whenever possible, if budgets allow, for a top notch water heater.

The comfort plus model is only available from Oem installers, typical Truma dealers cannot even order them. But those would require a circulation loop to be added.
The basic and comfort models essentially drop right in.

I purchased mine and had it installed at A&P Vintage Trailer Works in Paradise, TX, just sw of Decautur. The install includes a custom aluminum door trim for the outside door and aluminum paint on the trim.

Those photos is before I had the Truma upgraded to include the inside controls to allow ECO mode to be turned on/off plus normal, off, extreme cold feature and cleaning feature. Current models include the inside controls.

It looks like you are a big fan of A&P. Do you recommend them for certain things??

If you buy a unit, it has to be installed by be a dealer. You can't buy it individually.

A&P is great for a everything airstream! We also install Truma in other models besides Airstream.
