Hydronic ?

Anyone tried retrofitting hydronic into an old airstream ?
I am kinda worried about the complexity involved especially in terms of reliability/longevity, but one of the Alde type setups would be pretty sweet.
I am in the process of a shell off resto on a 1962 Tradewind 24. And I’m replacing everything anyhow. The other thought I had was some sort of electric ⚡️ radiant blanket type stuff under the floor like the Bowlus has.
I will be plugged in most of the time, so propane would potentially not be used at all unless I really wanted to use it.

For electric I think quiet warmth is a common choice for rvs. I'm about to do an install in my 31' and it should be about 500W. Definitely simpler than hydronic to install.

Warmly yours is another similar option
