TV/DVD Combo in 28BHS

I am looking at TV/DVD combos for my 28BHS. If you have one installed how big is it?

We are planning to do the same for this spring with our 28BHS. I already picked up the mounting bracket but am waiting for a good sale price on the TV/DVD combo. From time to time the 22"LED/DVD will go on sale for around $169 CDN which is pretty good I figure. I am planning to put one in the bedroom and maybe down the road we'll get one for the living area as well (although that one doesnt need a built in DVD as there is a cabinet adjacent which could be used for DVD/Blue Ray). The local Wal-Mart here no longer stocks any TV/DVD combos and when I spoke to the fella there he said they will likely be obsolete sometime soon (as they are mostly only used by RVers) and are not big sellers for manufacturers. Don't know if thats true, but he seemed to know what he was talking about, and he was wearing that authoritative blue vest ;-)

Sorry for the above rant... your question was about TV size and we will try 22" in the bedroom. The mounting spot is pretty close to where the two walls meet and I dont know that you could go much bigger than that. Also, weight will be an issue as well... there is another thread on here somewhere where folks mentioned taking the TV down off the wall during transit... might be a good idea too.

I was looking at a 22inch at Best Buy for $223. I may put a mount in the bed room and then just keep base to use on the Kitchen Table for now.

That's a great idea. The table is a better viewing angle from the sofa anyway.

I'm actually going to check on my winterized trailer this evening (for mice activity) and will do some measuring for the TV too. Spring can't come soon enough!!!

Well, I`m still out of town but found wi fi so I can get my JOF fix. I just installed an articulating mount in the bedroom on the wall , Like this one:https://www.jaycoowners.com/showthread.php?t=5916 For the bedroom I have a 19" TV. In the living area I have not yet found a suitable mounting place for the TV. At present I place it on the dinette table for viewing. It sits at eye level there, a straight shot across from the couch. The dedicated cabinet that Jayco has for the TV, well, frankly it stinks. Unless you have a giraffe neck to view it. When I need table I just put the TV back in the cabinet. That tv is a 19" DVD combo, 22 would be better.
