On demand water heater, who has one?

We are considering an on demand water heater. It seems like an efficient way to go. We tend to use the campground showers and do our dishes by the campfire. Has anyone put one in? What brand did you use? What size is needed for a sink and shower? As far as I can tell the prices are comparable to a regular water heater. I know they come in propane, electric and natural gas.

On demand water heater, who has one?

I installed a PrecisionTemp 550. Fits where the old 6 gallon Atwood was, with a tiny bit of trimming the top of the hole. Delivers hot water on demand, fairly easy on propane. The need 12 volt power, but the old switch in our rig runs it just fine.

Wife loves the hot endless showers.

It was well worth it. Atwood has a licensed copy, but I don't think it includes freeze protection like the PrecisionTemp. Something to consider if you camp in cold weather like we do. We've been out in below freezing weather-just need to leave it turned on so it can protect itself.
