I bought a Sony Bluetooth speaker with subwoofer and a separate Bluetooth transmitter I can plug into any source. Combo works superb; has about a 50 ft range, more than enough to set the speaker on a picnic table for listening. Both have rechargeable batteries and the transmitter can plug into a stereo USB port for charging while in use. Speaker batteries are good for 8+ hours, longer at lower volumes (has it's own volume control.)

We carry a battery operated AM-FM-weather radio with an auxiliary input. The mp3 player plugs into that. It's not hifi but it works. Raz

Looking for speakers

I looked at the little Bose speaker. I like the sound of the bigger one but it was too big.

I tried upgrading my built in speakers but they still sounded bad because the are not in a real cavity. The sound OK at low volume.

I just ordered a small DC powered amplifier. I have some wonderfully sounding Harmon Kardon Soundlink ii speakers. These have circuit boards that burn up after a few years. I refuse to buy any more. So I plan to remove the electronics and run them off my new small amplifier. I may need to replace the woofer with a dual coil part. I should brush up on crossover networks--something I haven't done in a while. At least then I will not have something designed to fail.

Our tiny speaker system with music source. This little speaker is enough for our Scamp 16. Cost about $10-20, comes with retractable cord and built in USB charging port. Very rugged.

Probably not adequate for audiophiles but adequate for ears in their 72nd year.

The idea would be to run off mp3 player or projector. Anyone have any recommendations? I have not found any locally, and can't listen to them online before buying.
I use computer speakers for my TV in my Scamp.
They are plug-in, provide stereo sound, and have separate volume controls so each person can control their own volume.
You could use the input jacks on your TV for your MP3, or play CDs in a DVD player through the TV.
you can see them in the picture below mounted in the corners below the cupboards...

This is the cheap amp I bought. I hooked it up to the mid-range and tweeter portion of my broken Harmon Kardon Soundstik II powered speakers. I may try to find a better amp for the woofer.

This amp would cut out after 1/2 volume was reached but did what I wanted it to do, provide adequate sound with a 1st gen iPad as the source. The internal speakers of the iPad were difficult to hear.

I was using a lame looking power brick. It might do better hooked up to a 12V source that can provide more current.

I can verify that. It is Bluetooth and can be placed anywhere. When I'm at home, I use mine in the garage.

This might not fit your needs, but I got a little Bose bluetooth speaker that sounds gorgeous. It can be plugged into AC or runs off rechargeable battery. It's got a great sound for our 13' Trillium, and I do consider myself kind of an audiophile. It's easy to bluetooth from your iPhone, and can go outdoors. Consider this baby:

Sony makes a similar model with subwoofer and onboard volume control. Range outside the trailer is about 30-40 ft, enough to reach the picnic table.
