What are you guys doing for TV?
I installed a Sharp 19" LCDTV mounted on a small articulated swing arm mount attached to the end of the cabinet just next to the so-called TV shelf (top of the fridge). I also installed a sturdy hook on the cabinet so that I can bungee the swing arm securely for travel. If you wall pictures I can post some.

I would not get any electronics from the dealer unless it was included with the trailer and was no extra cost. Get your own and get better stuff likely for cheaper.

I bought a 24" LED (1" thick, weighs 8 lbs and only uses 40 watts) picked up a small wall mount and built a base from wood which I painted black and bolted to the top of the cabinet beside the fridge. Fits perfect and the mount is very firm that I don't have to be concerned with the tv moving during transport. Once I figure out how to reduce the file size of the photo I'll post up a pick.

I picked up a DVD/TV combo from Best Buy today. 22 inch. My wife doesn't want me to permanently mount it to the top of the wardrobe cabinet. ( She wants to be able to put the TV on the table if she wants. So, now I guess I have to figure out how to wrap this thing up, maybe in a blanket and pack it away when we travel.
Also, I put in some external speaker cable ( didn't get the speakers yet) and I noticed that the AM/FM radio has a pair of RCA jacks for aux input on the top rear of the radio. I might be able to use that input to pipe the TV through the speakers in the camper.

I have the 19H and I didn't mount the TV because we didn't want to loose the space on top of the wardrobe. We picked up a cheap 19 inch set on sale at best buy. We don't use it every time we go camping. When traveling we wrap in in a blanket and put in on the seat cushion.

In my fifth wheel I use a 24-inch 120VAC HDTV in the living room and a 22-inch 120VAC HDTV in the bedroom.

In my OFF-ROAD POPUP I use a 22-inch 120VAC HDTV...

Cheap VIZIO BRAND 120VAC HDTVs from Walmart work just fine for me...

I use an PSW INVERTER SETUP that runs off the batteries to be able use the 120VAC HDTVs when camping off the power grid.
