Question Water Heater Replacement

I own a 1976 Airstream International rear bath trailer which has a leaky hot water tank. The heater is a Bowen G-10-B. The height of the compartment entrance is 16 1/4", the width is 16". Depth is about 16" at the top, and curves around to about 20". I need to replace the heater.

I checked with some local dealers in my home town and all say that Atwood-Bowen no longer makes this unit.

Does anyone have any ideas?

Thanks.

Robert

I've been helping my parents search for a new RV and there is a place near us called Colonial. They have a section on their site dedicated to parts. Maybe they have something that will help you?? They have a bunch of stuff on there. I am not super knowledgeable on parts as I am still learning but check it out. I hope this helps!

Bowen was bought by Atwood, but the Atwood appears to be easily found. Camping World for example, has the 10 gallon one on sale.

Atwood Water Heater - 10 gal LP - Atwood Mobile 94180 - Water Heaters - Camping World

However, their website also says that inventory is tight. Call around, you'll find them. I would buy the version that has the remote ignition (you can turn it on and off from in the trailer).

Note: you may very well find that the gas supply comes in at a different spot on the water heater, and the the trim at the bottom of the opening needs to be removed; they didn't stay unchanged over the last 40 years.

ps: they are water heaters. Not 'hot' water heaters. Why would you heat hot water?
