Bosch electric water heater?

Hello! i am new to the camper world. I recently moved to a very rural area to care for aging parents, and a friend gifted me a 1995 Jayco camper. I have been remodeling it and having fun with it! My water heater needs replacing, and I am looking at a Bosch electric mini tank water heater 3000 T 7 gallon (ES8) to replace the old one. Can anyone tell me if that will work? Thank you for any help you can offer!

A water heater with a propane option can be very useful if you ever intend to camp without electricity.

Will you ever be camping without 30a power?

I would like to have the propane option, but for now that water heater seems to be priced quite a bit higher than this one. I need a cost effective quick solution (read that as no hot water currently��) If this model would work, I will go with it for now, and when I get ready to take her on the road, I will change if needed.

I'm sure it would work just fine as long as it fits the current water heater space. It would require a little modification to the plumbing lines, and would have to be affixed to the trailer somehow so it wouldn't move during an emergency stop while travelling. And the price of those water heaters is very reasonable.
