Talking Tank less water heater

Hello Folks,
So the wife and I are looking for a new/used Class C and we have a few that we like and a couple of them is in the Thor Quantum line.

But they have the Tank less water heater and so after reading in the many, many, Class C forums there seems to be a mixed view of this type of water heater

So for those of you who have one please let me know your opinion and if this helps I will be doing a lot of dry camping in the one I end up with.

Thanks, Jake

Just wondering how many opinions do you need to read to make a decision? If opinions are that divided stick with the tried and true.

That can be true with about 95% of posts in here.

I'm here to gain info on the pros and cons of just about everything about a Class C and I have learned here that a tank less might not be very good for us who dry camp and that is what I care to do.

So since I am leaning towards a Quantum I thought I would try asking in here, however, I just found out one of the units that I like has the 6 gall. gas/elect one

The Quantum has a 6 gallon tankless as an option? Usually "tankless" doesn't have a tank size as it does not hold heated water. It heats the water on demand as it flows thru the heater, and these are usually very energy (elec or gas) demanding especially in colder weather. My heater (as most) have the option of either 110AC, LP Gas, or both. For warm weather boondocking, a black water bladder for showers may be an option.

If you are seriously looking at boondocking the Quantum, you really need to consider expanding the battery capacity by adding a couple.

We have a tankless on demand hot water heater in our motor home and love it. However, we camp in parks with full hookup except on rare occasions. If you boondock a lot, I don't think that you would like them as you have to run the water until it has a chance to register flow and heat to temperature, wasting a lot of water. You however have to flush the water from any hot water line so apples to oranges I suppose.

We do like the on demand hot water as we never run out and the water is HOT!!!

Oops, my bad. The Quantum that I'm looking at has the standard 6 gallon water heater.
