1/8 inch aluminum is easy to cut and shape. Cover with your favorite wood covering or something fancy.

I was thinking about fabricating it, it only has few switches on it and would allow me to install whatever size radio I want. 

I may have to look into this.

Thank you, you guys are absolutely THE BEST.

Sorry, but you won't find an off the shelf dash panel to match.  One option comes from the marine industry with a company called New Wire and they custom make dash panels with many options of configuration, prewired with switches or many other ways.  Here is there website  https://newwiremarine.com/  

Another option if you are handy with wood work is to get a product used in the marine industry called starboard.  It is a plastic that can be worked like wood and comes in many different colors, finishes and thicknesses.  When I made my own dash panel, I used starboard that was 7/16" thick, so it could carry the weight of the stereo and other items.  A good company to check out for this is: https://www.boatoutfitters.com/   They will sell you pieces cut to size and even put holes if it for you, for a charge of course.

See pictures of my dash.  The panel under the stereo is the panel I made out of Starboard.

Good Luck, John

I replaced mine on my 2003 Dynasty.  The guys at Elite Repair and Remodel in Harrisburg OR has a source for a great replacement (also the full instrument cluster panel), but I don't recall who it was.

BTW great shop, those guys worked at the Monaco factory until it was moved to Indiana.  They know these coaches incredibly well.  I drove there from TX to have a lot of repairs/upgrades done and it was the best idea I have had for my coach.
