Best RV tv

Hello, Looking to put a second TV in the bunkroom for the grandkids. Is there a certain brand that is more resistant to the tail end bounce rattle and roll of the road. Or do I just put a lot of bubble wrap around it and hope for the best.

Flat screens in the size I suspect you would be putting in the bunk room are a dime a dozen these days. Get one you're familiar with and you'll be fine. If it dies out of warrantee buy another.

We had a Samsung TV in the back of our WH and never had any issues with it.

Pretty subjective topic and nowadays it's hard to go wrong with any of the major brands. We just happen to be Samsung folks for tv's in our home and TT. I can't say that they're better for this reason or that reason...they just work well for us and we are familiar with their features and remote layouts.

Don't have a specific brand recommendation, but an LED is the way to go. They're thin, light weight, durable, and inexpensive. I might suggest getting one with a built-in DVD player, since you won't (easily) be able to hook up the BH TV to the radio/DVD player in your main entertainment center. That way, the youngsters can watch a video if you're camping in an area with little/no over-the-air service (or you're watching the game on cable/satellite on the main TV).

Happy Camping!

If possible I would match to the same brand you have out front or at home as the set up on the remote will be the same or similar. Still have a Sanyo in the bedroom but new main tv and at home are LG. 20" Sanyo was $130 at WMart a couple years ago. Just replaced the main tv out front with a 43" LG 1080p for $375 reimbursed by Jayco when the oem died under warrantee. Now that the giant curved tvs are out [$4 grand] the ones the rest of us buy are 1/4 the price they were just 5 years ago.

I was at the Jayco factory a couple of weeks ago and they told me they switched to Furrion because they had too many problems with the models they installed previously.

We changed out our old TVs with VIZIO TVs when the digtal change over came about. WE just keep using VIZIO here everywhere and then we don't have to worry about which remote we are using...

We use a 120VAC 22-inch VIZIO in our off-road POPUP and it has had many off-road miles over the past few years... I run a low wattage Sine Wave POWER INVERTER to run all of our electronics when camping off grid. The 22-inch TV is stowed in the hallway of the POPUP and has many other boxes and things stuffed in all around it when in travel mode... Still works like a champ...

Around the holidays you can get some serious deals at WALMART selling these popular TVs...

Whatever Walmart has on sale.
I kind of say that in jest, but if you're buying a tv just for your camper then figure it's not going to be used near as much as one in your house. So I'd go with whatever is cheap.
That's our situation anyway. We try to camp 8 - 10 times per year, the tv gets used every 2nd or 3rd time out and then only for a few hours. That's about 10 - 15 hours per year. Less than a regular weekend at home. I'd say even a cheap one should last a fe years. But as I said, that's our situation, others will be different

Name brands only, Samsung, Sony best, others good also, Visio, LG, Panasonic, Sharp. Avoid just about anything you see installed in RVs, these see to be really the bottom end of the LED food chain...
We have a 32" Panasonic 1080p LED in our TT and love it, now going on 4 years old. We do not leave it in place when traveling, it gets the top bunk for storage/travel. Also tend to leave it there unless weather bad, preferring being outside most time which includes cooking....
