crappy Entertainment system in new TT

Hi all. New TT is here and came with a totally crappy system. It has a Furrion DV3100. I don't think I found one good review on it and when I saw the etrailer video on it, I immediately knew I have to replace it. Here are my needs:

Our unit has two TVs and an outside mount for a 3rd or the ability to easily move our bedroom TV to the outside.
HDMI for DVDs.
Bluetooth for streaming.
Decent stereo
USB for us to use prime, or music or whatever.
I guess apps would be cool.

Any recommendations. Anyone have one of these and find a unit to easily swap out. Thanks

David

Doubt you will find anything that will make you happy. I too have been looking for a replacement for the radio/entertainment system in my RV (would like to have a blu-ray drive built in so I don't need to have a separate blu-ray player). I am baffled that no one makes a quality RV entertainment system. From my research, the most popular route is to install a car/automotive stereo. You will have a much higher quality receiver and amplifier, lots of options for inputs/output and apps on the higher end system. However, if your system is like mine, you will lose the speaker selections. I can choose speakers A, B and C (for inside and outside). This can be remedied by some creative wiring and an external speaker selection switch.

Look at car entertainment systems with zones. That will let you change the audio source for the interior/exterior or between rooms. The other issue is im pretty sure the stock units are larger than a normal double din car system so you may have to add some wood framing to support it. im going to look into replacing my furrion this fall.

Quite a bit cheaper on Amazon, might be other suppliers.

They are not the same size as a double din.
