Speakers?

Has anyone added speakers to the outside of their camper? I was thinking that it would be nice to have some sound outside for sitting by the fire It's a 2007 rockwood 8315ss

Most, if not all trailers these days come with speakers already built in. Inside and outside.

If you have Bluetooth on your system then you can get wireless speakers saves the fishing of wires. But it is not to bad to hardware either. Good luck

Do you travel with your trailer? Or is it in a park?

The blue tooth speakers have come a long way.

A wireless system something like this?

Amazon.com: Mutant MIG-WS2-S Media Block Deluxe Weather-Resistant Wireless Outdoor Stereo Speaker System: Electronics

There are also weather proof speakers. Rather than mount them on the RV, I would run wiring to jacks and just plug the speakers in when I wanted them. The jacks could be out of the weather inside a cargo door.

Come to think of it you could mount the speakers inside a cargo door and just leave the door open when you wanted tunes.

I dont think you would EVER get the sound quality from bluetooth as from regular speakers. Thats why i asked if youbtravel with it or not. I would just run wires and terminals and hookup as needed. I would look for wired outdoor speakers.

As mentioned, Bluetooth speakers have come a long way. Bose makes wireless Bluetooth speakers that have incredible sound. Even lesser priced ones sound good. Using an iPhone with a wired connection to me anyway sounds like crap.
