Exactly what I do (sans the external speaker).

These USB tuners and software can be a little buggy at times but its good enough for occasional TV in the camper. Since I always have my laptop anyway, I don't have to lug around a relatively large TV in addition. At around $70 they will save you a little over the price of a new TV but not that much. I don't use the recording function but its there if you want it.

The factory mounts the TVs (19 inch) on a swivel attached to the underside of the upper cabinets, in a rear corner. I like the mount, I may redo mine that way. Not sure the rear corner location is so good with our Liberty, I'll have to think on that aspect.

I assume they put a fairly large piece of plywood into the cabinet to support the load, I should have looked at it when I visited the factory.

That's a Scamp. Casita mounts them on a swivel mounted to the underside of the upper cabinet.

Another vote for the USB tuner. We use my 15.4" laptop for all entertainment needs and it works well. If I wanted live TV, I think the USB tuner will work well.

I have also seen Android TV tuner, but not sure if they work well.

15" Proscan 12V TV from Fry's

We got a Proscan 15" TV from Fry's that runs on 12V DC, although it does not come with a 12V cord I was able to get a 12V adapter with several tips including one that fits the TV. We mounted it on the wall between the front bath and side dinette on our Scamp 16. It is very light weight and low power. We have the cable TV feed thru under the side dinette so we can connect it to RV park cable TV or an outdoor antenna.
