I have a separate b/u camera screen on top of the dash. It was in the unit when purchased but I can see an advantage in that location in being able to keep an eye on a trailer without as much removing eyes from the roadway. Entertainment is a Radio/CD with Sirius(soon to disappear for a multiple disc cd unit)

My radio is an audiovox media receiver with SD memory card slot, USB port, hi def am/fm receiver and an aux jack for an iPod or CD player. They have eliminated a place to put the cd in. Since most people don't use CD's anymore. The audiovox camera system is a 7 inch full color dash mounted screen just above the doghouse. A wireless camera mounted to the luggage rack on the roof and wired directly into the vehicles 12 volt system so it can function as a back up camera or an electronic rear view mirror.

I went on Amazon and got one of the backup camera systems that attaches to the license plate. It came with a ten inch screen that hangs on the rear view mirror. I did a lot of looking, found one that had two video inputs, and got it for less than $70. I then went to local electronics store, and purchased an all weather outdoor security camera (dome type) with infrared. An extra 100 foot VGA cable, and went and installed it all. Pretty easy install (lots of tie wraps and split loom) and tapped the power off the dome light system right above the mirror (ignition activated). So basically I ended up with two cameras that I can select while driving. The license plate one gives me a close view for the bumper for backing up close to items and I mounted the dome camera up high on back of coach, and this gives me birds eye view most useful while driving down the highway to monitor traffic, TOAD or trailer. I leave it on all the time, and it truly turned a useless rear view mirror into an actual rear view TV. All in, I have invested about $200, about a half day to install. I have the most clear views, with a sleek looking LED screen on my mirror (no big TV on dash), and so far after 2 years, nothing has given me any trouble. Cameras both work at night as well, however we tend to travel during daylight hours anyway.

You can get those 2-din units off eBay for well under $200. They have nav, backup, Bluetooth and everything else. They are just generic brands from China but many different versions to choose from.

I'm getting one this winter for my 1991 Lazy Daze on the Chevy G30. Plenty of room in the factory dash.

AutoZone sells the audiovox brand rear view camera for about $75 buck which comes with a one year warranty. It's wireless so you just hook the cameras to any live12 volt power and plug the 7 inch monitor into your cigarette lighter outlet. That's it. This makes it easy to keep an eye on my car when I am towing it with my motorhome in case anything goes wrong back there!! :O

+1 on Crutchfield. I have bought several car and home audio systems and components from them over the past 20+ years. Their tech support is first class and they provide excellent installation instructions. And anything you buy from them has lifetime free tech support.

Mine is a Jensen. Sorry I dont know the model number and am not in the MH right now. A search on the Jensen web site might work

I had a Pioneer radio installed. It has a back-up camera, bluetooth for my phone, XM Radio (or Sirius I guess if you want that instead), a port to hook-up an ipad, a DVD player, and digital FM and a regular radio. I saw it on Amazon. I am pleased with the sound. My only objection is sometime there's a glare on the screen. I made a shroud to block out light when I need it. The touch screen works well once you learn to touch lightly. My MH is a 2004 Jayco 27DS Class C on a Ford chassis. The installer discovered that it was prewired for a back-up camera.
