What are you using for a TV in the hybrids?

I didn't want to pay for the TV option because what they wanted to charge me was nuts.

So I figure I can get a little 19 inch and mount it up on the cabinet.

What are you guys doing for TV?

that's about what it is, and i bet for what it is, you could put a much better television in the 19H... though i have no complaints really with the factory job...

the one i have came with the camper, but i'm already thinking of changing it out for a bit larger version... thought of moving the factory one to the back bunk area on a removable mount... as anyone in there doesn't really have any entertainment... but i think it's too big to go in the back, and i already have plans for one back there (mounted on the back of the bathroom wall) that is a little smaller, with a built in DVD player for guests, and kids...

as for the main TV... i like the bracket it has, so i want to re-use that... i also want to add a PS3 or something that can play DVDs... i don't care for the DVD player built into the radio on the other side of the camper.

also, a newer model flat screen can be had with HDMI inputs, making hooking up streaming vid very easy from iphones, computers, etc.

also... i'm thinking of adding a sub to the sound system... we listen to music more than anything, really.

We bought a 22" flat screen and hook a DVD player to it.

I have a 19 inch Vizio. It has been in the camper winter, spring, summer, and fall for 2 and a half years. No problems.

I am thinking of a Vizio from BJ's Wholesale. How did you secure yours?

Ours came with a 22” RCA, with a wall mount that has about 8 screws.

We use our laptop, which has the tv card in it. We put it on the dinette table and watch either tv or a movie sitting on the sofa. Another benefit is that we also use it for web surfing and checking email. It is nice to have one item that serves 3 purposes

We bought a 23" Visio LCD. It just slides in above the refrigerator with about 1/2 inch to spare. Nice picture and very visible from the front bed. We don't leave ours in the trailer, when we travel we place it screen side down on the dinette cushions and surround it with our clothes duffle bags, it doesn't move and it's cushioned from all the bumps.

I bought the Thetford mount for my TV. It has a velcro strap to help hold it in place when traveling and you can remove it from the wall by simply pulling a "trigger". I looked for a link and could not find one. Sorry.

Because we so rarely watch TV in the trailer, but would like the option occasionally, we got one of these:

We always have a laptop for pictures and to use as a dvd player, so that becomes our tv when we need one also.
