Which DP's have aqua hot 450D standard?

Hi all,

I have convinced myself that I "need" to have aqua hot 450D on a rig IF I buy one. I have been searching in vain through google hell for a list of models it comes on, even if it's a partial list. It's frustrating to figure out since most sellers / dealers have crappy listings that don't list full specs.

I know that the Entegra Anthem and Cornerstone have it. The Cornerstone may be in my price range if I could get 30% or more off.

However, despite seeming contradictory, I am also interested in the smallest DP that has at least the 400D if not the 450D. I don't really need more than a 38' rig but I do need great dry camping ability. I know that the propane version on the Aspire would do but I do not want propane on my rig.

Thanks for your time!
DK

Look at the Aqua-Hot website for list of coach manufacturers that provide Aqua-Hot heaters in their coaches, here: Company-We-Keep - Aqua-Hot

Many of the coach manufacturers have various models. Some have Aqua-Hot heaters and some don't.

The Itasca Ellipse has the Aqua-Hot system I believe in all models and sizes. We have the 40CD and really love the instant hot water the Aqua-hot system gives us. It also provides coach heating which we enjoyed in our last trip as the night temps were down in the 30's. The Aqua-Hot system was the tipping point for me in the purchase of our coach.

And I think the Safari Continentials/Panthers & The Beavers came with Aqua Hot Systems. Maybe even some Alpines.

Going to the various MFG sites is about the only way to see which coaches have the Aqua Hot system. I agree with you as far as the Aqua Hot, won't buy a coach that doesn't have it.

We also came to the conclusion that we "NEEDED" Aquahot and an all electric coach as we were tired of having to scout out propane when we were in different areas on our trips. We looked seriously at the Anthem, but ultimately rejected it because of the poor in-coach storage. We ended up with the Atasca Ellipse 42GD for an all electric coach with Aquahot. The first shower, my husband said, 'This was worth buying the whole coach for." We love the fast hot water with good pressure. Good luck with your choice, we are happy with ours.

If you're looking for something new, the Hydronic units are very common, whether the Hydro-Hot or Oasis brand. Off the top of my head, I've found them offered in Winnebago/Itasca, Newmar, Tiffin, Entegra, Fleetwood, and others. This feature is also mandatory for my next rig. I don't know if Oasis and Hydro are equals or not, but I think they just might be.

Our Dutch Star has the Oasis. The biggest difference between the 2: dual electric elements on the Oasis.


Heaters were running while showering and I still didn't run out of hot water. Diesel burner was turned off. Wife said the heat exchangers stayed on the whole time I was in the shower. Outside temps were in the 50s.

Some Beavers came with AquaHot; others came with a competing Hurricane system made by Welcome To International Thermal Research | International Thermal Research which is essentially the same. We have a Hurricane and love it; from what I understand it is simpler and less expensive to maintain than the Aqua Hot.
