Hi BJ,
I fitted one to our caravan a few years back and find it very handy. I have 2 x tanks but only fitted one guage. I just use the tank without guage first and when it runs out switch over to the guaged one and know what water I have left. It was an easy DIY job.

The link below has price and fitting instruction

Yes it is worthwhile. Makes everyone more conscious of water usage...and gives an approximate guide of usage/ available water supply.
I bought mine from Camec...(google them) and fitted it in situ myself. Trickiest part was running wires from underneath up thru wall and cupboards to a spot near the sink and tap.

Fitted one of these flow meters and mounted 30cm after 12V pump to avoid flow disturbance. Is in a cupboard inside the caravan and can see amount of water used. Reset after each tank fill.

Bunnings have exactly the same unit in a Holman brand with Gardena click on fittings for same price.
