12v car systems are usually built robust enough to handle a few bumps going down the road. 120v, ie. home audio systems, are usually built to set on a shelf that doesn't move and don't handle bumps too well. Also, the 12v car systems don't require an inverter to convert the 12v available in the trailer to 120v.
The down side of using car systems is that very few have blu-ray but most current movies come out in blu-ray. Lots of DVD players - not so much blu-ray players. Oh well!
