An Atwood 10 gallon LP only model would fit in the hole, and be the most economical, as well as easiest to install. You'd only need an LP line and the water lines. All the other stuff needs 12 volt for DSI, or 120 volt for electric elements, or both.

Meddle not in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy, and taste good with ketchup.

If I had a choice and $ was no object... I would find a small on demand hot water heater... That way I could actually take a shower where I could get wet!
