For a few months I have been deliberating where to mount my CB radio? I see some have mounted theirs to the left of the steering wheel under the dash; unfortunately for me that spot is taken with my Prodigy Brake Controller for my travel trailer; some have integrated it into the cubby hole beneath the Radio/DVD (to much work for me); some have mounted their radios sideways along the back portion of the console on the passenger’s side… etc…
I came with the idea of mounting the radio partially inside of the storage cubby above the double drink holder/tray (see pic 1 & 2) utilizing the original radio mount (u shaped) and a aluminum support post (see pic 3 & 4). This support post is made from a scarp piece of flat 1/8” thick, 3/4” wide aluminum.
At first glance this configuration will allow me to remove the radio as needed but maintain a clean and aesthetically pleasant look. The only drawback that I see is that I loose partial use of the double drink holders beneath the radio. This is where I need y’alls assistance, what am I missing in terms of draw backs?
I earnestly welcome your thoughts and comments.
