I would opt for instant hot water heater. That's what we use at our house and we like it a lot.

When we had a tank water heater we always used both at the same time for quicker reheat times. When we were boondocking we only used gas.

We only use electricity. Where we camp, electricity comes with the site fee. We save our propane.

Depends on where you're camping.

If you have hookups, use the electric side since it's free.

If you're boondocking or dry camping, you have to use the propane side.

Propane heats faster than electric.

When not boondocking, we turn both on. The gas + electric will heat faster. And then the gas won't turn back on unless we are b2b showering. (Though, my trailer is 30amps, so I have to manage your electric draw).
