Camp trailer water heater

Anybody have experience with the Mr. Heater camp shower water heaters, BOSS XCW20? I'm looking to add a water heater to the camp trailer kit, and was looking for suggestions.

I have propane, on-board water, 3 additional 5 gallon water cans, 12v and invertors on the trailer.

I can not speak to that model.

I have a Zodi and it only warms the water about a dozen degrees and the water stream is meager by functional. (And a ton cheaper than the Mr. Heater model)

I also have a Zodi right now.. as Dave said its ok.. you have to recirculate the water to really get it hot..

I will be going to A camp Chef hot water heater next once i add in dual 10# propane tanks, and on board water and some other items.
