Be nice to have if you operated in cooler climates alot. However like all the other systems in a M/H it will require service, and repairs more systems = more problems. With a 10 gal gas/elec water heater we have never run out of hot water. With the heat pumps we have managed to stay warm with very little use of the furnace(s) down to 10 deg. Additionally most coaches with Aqua Hot type systems are toward the high end of D/Ps, and the unit takes up on whole bay for your storage. If $$ was not an issue go for it, but if I found a coach I liked with out it I would not be a must have for me.

There are a few manufactures of Hydronic heating systems that are popular for RV's, Aqua-Hot, Hydro-Hot, Oasis and now Espar has gotten into the RV business with their 55,000 BTU RV unit.

From the factory when the coach is first built, they are usually a $11,000 - $12,000 option. That cost would be significantly higher if you wanted to install aftermarket.

I totally agree with DC Cruiser and others on this thread that I would not own a coach without an Aqua-Hot System.
