can I add outdoor speakers?? Wildwood x lite 195bhs

I am trying to decide between purchasing the Wildwood x lite 195bhs vs the Cherokee wolf pup 16bhs. One major difference is the wolf pup is pre wired for solar panels, as well as has outdoor speakers.
Can anyone tell me how difficult these things would be to add onto the wildwood? The outdoor speakers are most important to me although I would like to know what being prepared wired for solar is even worth. Any advice is appreciated. Thanks!

You would be better off using wireless bluetooth speakers that you could place somewhere outside. The install of permanent trailer mounted speakers is going to be complex (i.e. expensive).

Do you know if that trailer is equipped with a bluetooth stereo? I am wanting to use the stereo that is in the trailer.

And the huge holes that need to be cut are not for the faint.

Wireless or Bluetooth.

The wildwood 195bh does not have a stereo unless you add it as an option. Use a Bluetooth speaker with your phone.

Your Trailer/RV's floor, walls, and roof are completely full of holes. IMHO, there is no reason to shy away from adding a couple more. Just take your time to do it right or hire it out to a pro. You will likley end up with a job done better than the ones done at the factory.

If you are a confident DIYer, then go for it. Can't be too hard, can it? Ours have it already. Otherwise, we'd be using my wife's bluetooth UE Boom tube to play tunes via her smartphone, which we still take in case we're on beach or away from the trailer.

Why not just purchase the unit that has the options you want. I think adding the speakers would be a pain plus maybe voiding a warranty (not sure on this)? I would think just getting the unit that has what you want is the best decision.

If you do not get them I would just use a portable speaker from your phone.

I go camping to enjoy the peace and quiet and to get away and listen to the music nature provides. Why would anyone subject others to their taste in music, unless it could only be heard by them only (maybe using earphones). The dealers sell everything and anything to make a profit and forget what camping is supposed to be.
