I made my own heating system with a Webasto Scholastic series heater.  It does everything an Aqua-Hot does.  I've had it for 8 years and never had a problem with it.  I got it from Bus Bart for around $1200.

George Myers did a great book on heating with hydronic the pros cons the good bad and ugly. One of the greatest things about Mr Myers is he tells you all the mistakes he makes and troubles he has had. The annoying thing with a complicated system is you want and need it to work when its cold and your on the road, and can be difficult to repair when its cold and your on the road.

Other systems on the market Aqua Hot is just one player me I have the Hurricane System in our boat have no idea what one cost new I do know they burn a lot cleaner than the Aqua Hot and about every part in the unit is stainless steel IMO a lot better unit than Aqua Hot,like Cole I do not like the 5 or 6 gals of fuel per day for hot water and to stay warm a better way of doing that  

good luck
