See my earlier post. Most RV entertainment systems will not pair with a bluetooth speaker.

I was going to say just get a bluetooth transmitter that plugs into the headphone jack but I don't think they have headphone jacks do they? Just aux input.

Better off just getting a small radio and setting it outside.

I find it rude to have it beyond a small circumference ear shot.

I like quite and solitude too, but at campgrounds, well, there's no such thing. Only when boondocking in my experience... and when boondocking, I will play my music about the same -- within earshot.
Thank you everyone for your replies! I have my trailer at home now and I have decided I do not want to cut into any of the walls to install speakers. I do want to quickly respond regarding the posts about listening to music at campgrounds. I never specified that we would be blaring music at a campground, this post was simply for suggestions on adding speakers. I have had a hard time finding this info because of so many people responding to the question with their opinions on LOUD MUSIC IN CAMPGROUNDS. I do not camp in campgrounds, where we camp we are about 20 miles from ANY Other campers or any civilization. I have no intention of ever camping in a camp ground, if I did, then my indoor speakers would probably be loud enough. With that being said, I believe my best option is the Bluetooth Transmitter, I did not know that exists! I think I can get a bluetooth outdoor speaker, and plug the bluetooth transmitter into the headphone jack of the unit, and use my bluetooth ipod to transmit the music, or just plug the ipod into the aux jack which will work just as well. I'm not sure if the bluetooth transmitter will make the ipod, AND a bluetooth speaker connect, but its worth a try! Thanks everyone! Loving my trailer. Only complaint is I wish there was storage under the bottom bunk bed. First trip is plannned for fathers day weekend!

If your ipod has bluetooth and that is the music you want to listen to. Then all you need is bluetooth speakers and they will connect to the ipod. If you appreciate really good sound from a bluetooth speaker, try the Bose Soundlink mini. Amazing sound from a small speaker that has a several hour rechargeable battery.

Yep.

No holes, no install.
When it breaks, get a new one.
Some "boom boxes" are really well equipped. Shop around.
RV mounted speakers point at your neighbor. Turn the radio around and point it back into your site.
You can take it some distance from the camper.
You don't have to go inside to change CD or channel.
Battery power, no cord to fool with.
Affordable.

I think adding a few outside speakers is definitely a DIY project. You should have no trouble at all.
