Orion TV

I am very much interested in the new Coachmen Orion - a small motorhome based on the Ford Transit. I like everything about it except it has this entertainment center on the outside of the vehicle. I have no use for the stereo on an RV, but would use the TV regularly if it was inside the motorhome, where it belongs. I don't see an option to have the TV mounted inside. I sent an email to Forrest River about, but they never replied.
I can't imagine why a TV is outside, I would never watch a TV outdoors.
One of my pet peeves about staying in campgrounds is other people with outdoor speakers listening to music, in fact I got so fed up with electronic noise from other campers, I sold my last RV and swore I would not stay in another campground again.
But now I am reconsidering. But I do not want an outdoor entertainment center, and I don't want anyone else having one either. Is this the direction the RV industry is going?

The inside television is over the cab in the entertainment center. And yes outdoor entertainment centers are now the norm. I have one and use it on occasion. As far as playing music outdoors, as long as it is kept to a reasonable level I don't normally have an issue with it. I have seen plenty of campers with televisions and radios on the picnic tables over the years, the outdoor entertainment center just makes it easier.

Thanks for the reply. I am happy there is an indoor TV too. Although there really should be a way to delete a feature like an outdoor entertainment center, so I don't have to pay for something I don't want.
And yes, if the volume is kept at a reasonable level, I don't mind others using outdoor entertainment centers. But it seems there is always someone who is disrespectful to others.
