Must replace Water Heater

The original Bowen G10B is leaking and we want to replace it ASAP. What is the best route to go?

To be more specific, is there a source for a replacement for this water heater that y'all are aware of?

VintagetrailerSupply tries to supply Airstream-correct appliances:

Be warned that all new water heaters come with a white exterior cover. My '67 Airstream still has its original water heater. Should the unit ever fail, I plan to remove the stamped aluminum cover pieces from it and retrofit to the new water heater.

I replaced mine with a 6 gallon manual light Atwood heater. Still going strong. I also have an extra new one if you can pick it up in NM.
