86 Bigfoot 17. Furnace Replacement.

Howdy Community. I am looking for advice.

I want to replace the original 86 Hydroflame furnace in my 17ft with a modern propane furnace. ( it rarely works and i'm tired of trying to problem solve it )

Anyone with experience doing this and can suggest a newer model furnace I will be able to get in British Columbia?

Not interested in Diesel or other types.

Thanks so much

I put a Camco Wave 6 catalytic heater in the same space in our Bigfoot and it was easier to install than taking the old one out. Very happy with it, even though I'm always a tinge nervous because it is a non vented catalytic. However, I have a carbon monoxide monitor and always keep a window cracked when it is on. I don't miss the fan noise and its battery usage at all.
