Upgraded Entertainment Center

Most of my camping is boon-docking in the mountains, so the "Executive" stereo/DVD player in my camper never got used (runs off 110 v ac). I found a good deal on a Jensen AWM 970 on Ebay so I figured it was time to upgrade. I'd previously bought a Visio 22" flat screen for the camper that was 110 vac, but the transformer on the plug was 12 volt. Here is a picture of the entertainment center right after I got the camper.


I decided to build an oak frame for the stereo and create a storage area behind the TV by mounting it on an old cabinet door. I also added doors to the left side to use the shelves as a pantry.


Here is a pic of the stereo and area behind the TV.


Close up of the finished cabinet.


I picked up the doors at the Habitat for Humanity Restore for cheap.

I can now listen to the stereo or watch a movie on 12 volt DC.

that's great! I like the idea of getting as much storage space as you can, waste no space. Is the TV at a good viewing angle mounted like that?

The TV is at eye level sitting on the couch and I can swing it towards the couch if I need to by opening the door. I need to devise a block so it doesn't close though. I don't watch much TV camping but it's a rainy day backup.

maybe a lid stay like http://www.amazon.com/Stanley-N208-6...d_sim_sbs_hi_2 would be a good, cheap adjuster?

Excellent job! I like the idea of mounting the TV on a door like that...very innovative and much less $$ than a fancy swivelly bracket.
