Frederick business celebrates 40 years in RV solutions industry

Aqua-hot created the Aqua-Hot Heating System in March 1989

Aqua-Hot began as Vehicle Systems, Inc. in 1984 when its founder Harold “Hap” Enander sought a way to improve his RV camping experience. Enander developed a system that provided unlimited hot water as long as he had a continuous water supply. 

Enander opened the business in Fort Lupton but moved it to Frederick in 2023 as the demand for the RV lifestyle has grown.

“Aqua-Hot has seen incredible growth in the past few years as more and more people start exploring the RV lifestyle,” said Selma Salihagic, general manager. “We’ve been able to make a product that is a critical piece of the RV experience, and we continue to innovate to serve our customers in all of our markets … We have exciting opportunities for future expansion with new product lines coming soon.”

The relocation expanded the company’s ability to manufacture more products. The company is also able to host in-person training with tours.
