I contacted Truma to see about price and availability. They didn't give me a price, and said they will not be available to the aftermarket, but that my builder, Van Specialties, could contact them and see about getting certified to use Truma. I contacted VS, who seemed unenthused and pushed me toward the espar d-5. There will be more discussion with VS, as I'm not planning on spending Espar $.

Visited the local RV show today and noted that Coachmen now includes the Truma Combi standard on all their Sprinter based Galleria Class B vans. And the Cricket popup adventure trailer from Taxa Outdoors also features the Combi. (BTW, that Cricket popup trailer is one impressively engineered little unit!).

The factory rep mentioned the Truma Combi OEM cost was about $1500. That's for the Truma Combi Eco 4 unit only, and does not include ancillary equipment costs or installation. But it does provide a rough equipment cost comparison versus the Espar D4 for example.

Worth every penny.

Would anyone consider buying a unit from a European website and having it shipped by a friend, and installing it yourself?

They seem to be available to purchase on online European RV parts store
Truma Combi 4E Water/Space Heater

Would have to convert 240v to 120v... anything else?

I thought they were instant water heater? why is there a tank capacity? 2.64 gallons (10 liters)

I'm interested to know the answer as well. I'm at the point in my build that I need to decide what route to go for heat and hot water. A Truma Combi Eco appears to be a good choice but I can't find a dealer anywhere.
I think it has a small tank that continues to heat once in use, similar to an on demand without fluctuation.

EDIT to add*
Just had a call back from Truma USA and they said that they don't sell to the public or have dealers. They only sell to new RV manufacturers for install. Bummer.
