Sure Donna, I bought a standard RV 6 gal. manual ( not self lighting ) water heater,
then cut a hole in the side at floor leval,I set the heater in place and made a cardboard templet,then using the templet built a plywood box,or plug as it's known in fiberglass
to cast the peice, then using bondo body filler I filled in the inside corners to fit the heater door, took it too a fiberglass guy and he made me the glass piece, then I put it in place and glassed it to the body. Wayne

Wow Wayne, that looks like it is sposed to be there! Wish Burro had thought of it!

That would be great for storage too.
