Yes, but the Truma Combi is only available as a factory installed or OEM upfitter installed system, not as a stand-alone user installed part.
But the good news is the Combi is rapidly becoming standard for North American Class B vans with propane. Winnebago began installing Combi's in the Travato model and now includes them in all Class B vans (Paseo, Era, Travato) except one special version of the Era that uses a similar Alde hydronic system.
And now that Erwin Hymer group from Europe has purchased RoadTrek they are beginning the switch to Truma Combi for propane units, and Alde diesel for the Ecotrek Sprinters.
With Sportsmobile's twelve month backlog and running flat out to keep up it's understandable they can't yet take time to install and train personnel on the Combi. But the good news is by the time they catch up the Combi will be common in Class B vans and repair service widely available if needed.
Winnebago owners have been reporting great success with the Combi. It's quite, small, and very efficient for both propane and electrical consumption.
