Actually, the 25's furnace is similar to the Classic line (if we're talking a newer Safari 25). It has more BTUs and can accept the comfort control system. The 22' units are closer to what is in the 19' Safari/Bambi and I don't think the smaller furnaces in those units can get comfort controls. Water heaters should be near the same if not totally the same.
I hear ya on the noise level of the furnace. I fully agree, if it's a bit of noise or freezing your behind off, I've found personally how you can get use to things.
Our 25' has the heat pump that is controlled by the comfort control system. The Penguin isn't much better when it comes to noise level. Putting into perspective though...it sure beats tenting by a long shot!
