NEVER is a long time so on the off chance something could change I voted NO.

No CD or DVD player either.

I have a Cathode-Ray Tube type TV/VCR with an exterior antenna and an exterior connection for cable TV. I have installed one of the new digital tuner boxes for when the analog broadcasts end next year. We also watch DVD's and play Video games on my Laptop computer.

I did not buy the TV for this trailer. It was one of the 4 TV's I already owned, all of which are older CRT type units. There was one trip where it came in really handy; we pulled it out of the trailer and took it along to the Laundromat where we watched videos for about 2 hours while we did laundry.

I personally see no need for a tv... my purpose is to get away and enjoy what nature provides around me....
I had to giggle at Grayland this weekend... some one put their satallite dish clear out by the road out of the circle so they could get reception... wondering how many dogs decided to pee on it...LOL

No TV, but we do take my lap top computer in the event of rain. Hubby likes to read at the front table if we have to be inside in the event of a heavy shower, I watch a movie he probably wouldn't like (i.e. chick flick) while lying in bed. We use it ONLY in the event of rain storm that drives us inside.

We have an old style TV which is AC/DC and has DVD player built in, small screen, but is a little bulky and heavy. It will play movies as well as music. But it is not ditial, so in Feb. we will not be able to use it without a Ditial Box which will not be DC, only AC. Often we leave it in the pickup camping but at times we pull it out. When we spend a month in North Dakota this summer, we use it quit a lot. We like it camping to get weather reports mainly. Not sure if we would get one of the flat screens if they come out with one AC/DC or not, depends on the cost. We have another AC/DC which we had used many years in our motor home, but it DC plug shorted out and can not use it with the DC. It is smaller, lighter without the DVD player.

No TV plans for our camper- We have not had a dish or cable for 25 years in our home which only gets 3 channels But consider this: we have saved approx. $25/month X 12 X 25 yrs = $7500.00 which was more thatn enuff to buy our "new to us" 13" scamp! (We have tent camped for those 25 years and are still learning what to pack since our above ground upgrade.

I have a TV card for my laptop, but I have yet to use it. I took the laptop to Bandon, but it never even came out of the case once for the two weeks we were on the road. Like others, my computer/tv is my backup activity for rainy days. I don't have full cable TV at home either - just more money spent to do nothing...(besides, if I had all those home renovation shows, you'd never peel me away from the thing)

I thought about doing that but decided I have enough for rainy days. Cards, books, and ham radio should keep me busy enough.

I use the DVD player in my laptop on those really rainy days. Am considering a HD TV card for the laptop maybe someday if I get tired of watching DVD's and plan on being somewhere where I get reception (probably not until I'm retired and on a really long trip somewhere).

One of my favorite things is to watch my Georgia Bulldogs at my campsite on a crisp autumn evening. To each his own.
