I have a AudioVox 12" LCD unit with built in DVD player. Mounted with RAM brackets. In keeping with the policy of Wretched Excess, I did put a 4"x6" stainless steel backing plate inside the overhead.

The basis of the RAM mounting system is basically (rubberized) ball and socket.

I don't travel with the television mounted (it just slides over two screw heads on the mounting plate, but I expect I could.

I just run on 12v. It's just a plain cord so I don't have to carry the brick.

In this picture it's rotated towards the pillows for the horizontal viewing position.

I'm still waffling about what to get. Does anyone use WiFi on the road? Is it worth getting, does it work well? A friend has offered me a deal on a laptop, but it's more than I want and less than I need if you know what I mean! Decisions, decisions!

We have a wireless network at home for our 3 computers. My laptop works well logging in there, now that Robert has all the setup issues solved. I still have a learning curve to surmount on how to log into some other "Hot-Spot" transmitter. I tried once to do it at a nearby coffee shop and couldn't figure out how, at that time. But Robert wasn't with me then...

WIFI may not be available at some remote campsites... due to a lack of a transmitter. One KOA we stayed at in New Mexico only had dial-up service, and you had to use AOL's 800 number.

I think the wireless set up is great.I have found sites which the public can use and when we do go to city,I find it fun to keep in touch.

If have a newer Laptop computer the chances that wifi is built in. If that's the case then all you have to do is find free wifi "hot spots". There's several web site devoted to telling the public where those sites. Do a google search on wifi hot spots. Once connected everything should work the same way it does at home when using that same computer on line.

Our 2002 Casita came with a tv/vcr combo, so we're keeping it for a while. It has a nice screen and we have a lot of old VHS tapes stored away that we can take with us. Eventually, though, we will get a flat screen TV of some sort and a DVD player. Technology marches on.

I bought the 8 inch lcd tv/media card reader from Radio Shack. It's a nice small package for my 13 ft trailer and runs directly off 12 volt 2.5 amp or built in rechargeable battery to take outside. Having a bigger screen to look at my sd media card out of digital camera is nice too. Mike
