Peter,

that sounds interesting. Can you tell me the brand and model? THanks!
By the way, thanks for the photos with explanation. Gonna see if that works in my Bigfoot.

It's a no-name Walmart cheapie that claims to be made by Venturer, distributed by Alco Electronics of Ontario, Canada. The box was sitting in the recyle bin, so I folded it back together and snapped a pic for you.

Peter, do you like the picture on that?

I have a smaller screen on a swing out, also for mobile, but the tuner is a seperate unit. I could use that to input to the larger screen.

Sink is on the other side, Candi. In fiberglassland the Scamp 19' 5th wheel is a big trailer . . . In RVstorageland, however, it's hard to see our little rig behind anything but a tent trailer. Even the cab-over parked behind ours is bigger.

Of course, it makes sense now that I think about it. I imagine that everyone has a scamp just like mine, laid out in the same manner.

Our neighbor had a 5th wheel in their backyard for the longest time. It looked like it was never used. We drove by everyday and looked for it. One day it was gone and though not a big disappointment in the scheme of things, we were still a little sad. Scamps just have that cute factor about them.

But, I'm off topic. I went to Walmart to look at your DVD/TV stand and couldn't find any. I did find that screen. Did you say you can plug something in to get local stations?

We attached a TV/DVD/CD radio under the counter above the sink. I don't have pictures, but you can spin the screen towards the bed, so we sit on the bed while watching. On the bed, we bought some seats at Target that fold to support the back and the bottom. So we prop them against the Burro's back wall, sitting on the bed, with the TV flipped down below the cupboard above the sink.

The screen is a little small, really, but TV watching isn't a big thing for us. More something we'll do to listen to the local weather guy or watch a movie when it's cold, wet, and scary outside. It's main attraction is that it can swing out where we can both see it while sitting in the dinette without cluttering up our counter or other space.

Many (most?) stand-alone DVD players also have a TV tuner built-in, but what we're looking for is an AM/FM car stereo with a DVD player, something like this: http://www.shopping.com/xPF-Pyle-Pyle-PLD1...ayer-w-TV-Tuner

We use our laptop for movie-viewing. As Brian stated, no extra stuff to worry about, which is always important in a 13-ft. house! Works well for us - L 'n D

In November I purchased a 13" TV with built in DVD. I paid Wally World $98 for it. It's a CRT TV, not a newer style LCD. But, for $98 you can't go wrong.

It stores where the porta potty would go, below the front couch. It sits on the sink counter to view. From there I can drop a line outside if the campsite has cable tv available.

We watch DVDs the old fashion way. 13" Sharp LCD TV and Toshiba DVD player from the house. Toshiba is 17" X 8" X 1.5" and the TV fits nicely on top. We place both on a pivoting arm TV shelf attached in the corner of the Compact.

Got a 9" TV/DVD from WalMart a couple years ago. It's a CRT, so it has to stow in the closet, but it works on AC or DC. Watching a movie seems to use more electric power than just watching airwave TV. The brand is Orion, but I have seen the same unit in other stores with the Toshiba label.
The screen is flat and gives a great picture. It is great for broadcast, OK for movies, and a little small for video games or football.
About $150
