Add a solar water heating unit to add heat to stored water? The in line would then only be needed to bring it up to max temp if it is not there already?

Would not save space except you could lay the water storage tank down horizontal. Would save on $$$ IMHO

I had a solar water heater in AZ with an 80Gal tank and LOVED IT! I have a 50Gal tank with a booster electric tankless in ND and it's OK after about the first 5 minutes in the shower (software is very slow on tankless for safety reasons) I wouldn't recommend a downline tankless, put it upstream of the tanked water heater (though in my situation this was alot less cost efficient).
