3 Years ago sitting in my tent - Look at those people in RV's.. Hmm.. looks kinda nice.
2 Years ago sitting in my RV. Look at those people with TV's. If their going to camp dang it, then CAMP.
1 Year ago sitting outside my RV watching TV.. Wow.. Look at all those poor people sitting in tents... They don't know what their missing....
In short.. Don't worry.. If you want to watch TV inside, outside or on your roof then do it. Camping is for fun.. So have fun.... YOUR WAY..... Whichever that may be...
Ours comes out at night for down time for our kids with a DVD. As soon as the landing gear hits the parking spot and kids help set up they are gone. Riding bikes, fishing, playground, RUNNING all around with other kids.
My kids go until they are so exhausted they get sick, so I am ok with kids sitting in front of a movie at night outside in lawn chairs with a bag of popcorn, this is done after marshmallows, glove sticks, bug chasing and playing in the dark.
The TV is also nice during the fall football games as well.
We do not have cable or satellite at home and this year I am looking at one of those tailgater pay as you go deals...
We did the same thing "looking out of the tent" frowning at people with their TV's etc. Now I can see its uses as we mostly camp local. If we ever get the chance to go to the mountains or somewhere very remote I do not see the TV coming out much.
