Swapping single for douple power (110v) outlet

We have purchased a 2012 Berkshire 390BH-60. I am in the process of upgrading the TV in the back bedroom to the maximum size that the openning will allow. The TV is currently plugged into a single receptical 110v outlet located between the back of the cabinets and the exterior wall of the MH. Along with increasing the size of the TV, I am also planning to install a second DVD player in the bedroom so that I have the option to either watch the same show as livingroom or a separate one. In order to facilitate the cleanest installation I would like to plug the dvd player into the same outlet as the tv (rather than havng cords running down the wall)

My question is this ... is there any reason why I cannot or should not replace the single with a standard double receptical outlet?

Tim

Why replace the outlet. Wouldn't this be an easier solution?

I'd do it in a quick second.

Are you going to use a basic home style outlet from Home Depot, or an RV outlet? Reason I ask is the depth of the box.
