Most of the ones I have seen are 1.5 DIN. If you have room to make the opening a little larger top/bottom or both the any Double DIN unit would fit. I replaced the one in our Tiffin with a JVC KW800BT CD Receiver. I think I only had too enlarge the opening by 1/2" an inch.

I recently replaced the Magadyne in my Southwind with a Pioneer DEH-4400HD. Absolutely love it. It is 1 DIN so it fit my existing space perfectly.

hit the road......Just so you know, the Magnadynes had an issue with the power lead where the two connectors come together at the back of the radio. The leads make a poor connection and cause the radio to lose power and the CD skip from loss of power.

I tossed mine and put in a Pioneer Avic (many levels of the Avic) AM/FM/XM/CD/DVD/GPS. It has a large screen and plays the voice directions through the stereo speakers.

The Magnadyne is a 1.5 DIN. Radio openings come in 1.0, 1.5 and 2.0 DIN. The size refers to the height of the opening. The width is standard. I enlarged my Monaco to a 2.0 DIN to install the Pioneer. It's just a matter of cuttig the dash panel opening a little larger and then slide in a new frame which will come with the new radio.
