If some are happy with the tankless, as I have commented before, that's a good thing. We have no complaints with the tank type and haven't run out of hot water, possibly because we know we are dry camping in a RV... She hasn't run out when we have full hook ups for that matter.... I will say that we paid top $$ for one in our house and there isn't one local plumber that knows how to service it.
It is very likely that the tankless one you put in is much better than the one Thor now puts in the units as there are many questions and comments about the ones in the newer units.
I really like the idea of a tankless heater for many of the reasons you put one in but since we've never had an issue with a std water heater in any of our RV's (2 TT's, a 5er and now the Axis) I've never really given it a thought.
