DVD player in place of useless radio CD

The radio in the Aframe gets terrible reception. Has anyone had a DVD/CD player installed to take its place?

If you have the room, I have replaced the stereos in my past 3 campers with this one:
RV Stereo 12 Volt EV Wall Mount Bluetooth CD DVD Player Surround Sound Warranty | eBay

It is very similar to one of the newer $799 concert one stereo systems but at a fraction of the price.

I live mine and is why I just put one in not too long ago on my new camper.

Plays DVD movies
Has bluetooth to stream music from your phone or tablet to the stereo
Plays audio from TV thru stereo
3 speaker outputs (main room, bedroom, and outside)

I got rid of the Radio replaced it with 12 volt outlets so I can use my XM Boom Box, yes I still have one of those. My tablet provides movies and headphones are bluetooth. Carry a Weather radio for local weather reports

I'd assume in an A-frame, you don't really need the multi-zone speaker selections that the RV radios provide.

So, with that in mind, pretty much any car radio should be able to replace it. Just find a local car radio installer (or at worst, a Best Buy) and get them to recommend a radio for you.

But if you're just looking to replace because you're having reception problems, remember that it might just be the antenna. Before you switch the radio out, have you tried making sure the antenna is tightly plugged into the back of the radio? As these units bounce down the road some connections have been known to work themselves loose.

It might be all you really need to do, which is a lot cheaper than a new radio.
