In-dash stereo replacement recommendations?

Hi everyone,

I'm thinking about replacing the old radio in our 97 Pace Arrow with a new stereo system. RV is a gas Ford V8 chassis.

It's a Single-din height system now, will stay with that.

Want MP3, USB, Aux input, Bluetooth, hopefully the ability to connect existing 10 disk CD changer OR will get one with CD player.

Android phone interface/connectability (if other than bluetooth).

Has anyone done this, and/or have recommendations of models that worked well?

Thanks!

Glad you asked. We are going to replace ours as well. I'm hoping to hear that it's not too difficult!

Just finished installing a new Stereo Radio/CD unit in my MH, using current 4x ceiling speakers.

Pioneer DEH-X7800BHS CD Receiver with Bluetooth, HD Radio and SiriusXM Ready. Ebay $112, free shipping.

Bluetooth for Smartphone calling and Audio streaming. Plays Spotify, Pandora, Amazon Music (any music channels on Smartphone). Front USB and AUX ports to plug-in audio players like Ipod or tablets. Now to connect LED TV using a Bluetooth transmitter to radio/house speakers.

The HD digital FM Stations sound great. If your are looking to upgrade, this is a nice unit!

That's crazy! That model is one I just favorited at Crutchfield in my browser for my "short list"! It's a bit more there, though. $130.

Thanks!

Walmart is advertising it for $112. This radio includes the single-din frame to slide radio into dash, MIC/cable for voice pickup and wiring harness to wire up RV power and speakers (2 front, 2 rear). Also has 3 RCA outputs to connect external AMPs and Subwoofer. The multicolor display is bright and cool looking. Also includes a remote. Enjoy!
