Water heater required for trough bath

Hi everyone, I tried searching the forums for answers to this and couldn't find anything. Does anyone know what kind of water heater I would require for a trough bath? Would I need two 40 gallon tanks to pull it off?
Thanks.

I'd think that would depend on how deep of a bath you're talking about and what size tub.

Most of the RV type tubs are pretty small. Are you thinking of the cattle troughs they sell at the home stores?

Yep the metal feed troughs. I think they're 70 gallons but not sure how much water I would need once I'm in the tub. I'm 115 pounds.

I'd use a tankless water heater.

Given how fast a cup of coffee cools off at this time of year, your tub would be nice if it recirculated the bath water through the water heater allowing an actually long hot bath.
