Check your available cabinets space / sizes; that is a pretty big unit for a smaller rig. Newer units have Bluetooth capabilities; nice to have wireless speakers - we have a Sony portable speaker we can listen to outside the camper (up to about 30 ft.)

With a DIN-1 form factor you can get a paintable under-cabinet mount that works well.

Nope, I went with an Alpine unit for the additional Bluetooth and Sirius XM features.

It's mounted at an angle so I can use a remote from both outside the entry door and when lying in bed. I use an audio out jack from the TV to the input of the Alpine to play the TV sound over the stereo speakers

Amazon.com : Alpine CDESXM145BT Advanced Bluetooth CD / SiriusXM Receiver : Car Electronics

Junk yard find!

I went to one of those u pull type junk yards in my area on the off chance of finding a rigid spare tire cover. As luck would have it I came across a black Suziki Grand Vitara cover. It's 27 inch diameter is a pretty good fit for my 26 inch spare. Since the vinyl was quite torn and the shell was cracked in 2 places the yard let me have it for free.
After some internal epoxy and glass rework, sanding, and heat gun to remove the decals it was looking pretty good. A simple paint job, added edge trim, and bonding my old vinyl to the inside I was ready to go!
It's not perfect but I still like it better than what I had.
