Television solutions

Hello all-
I have a small project and need some guidance. I have a 19" RCA TV/DVD combo and I want to mount it in our Parkliner. It looks like a good place to put it is to the right of the galley area on a double swivel mount. I have two questions:
1. What's a good mount and quick release device (for removing the tv while traveling) at a reasonable price?
2. Is there a favored non permanent mounted antenna for those times when cable and/or Redbox isn't available?
Thanks for any and all input

Thanks for your quick reply. This sounds like the perfect solution. I will order today.

Do you have any suggestions for an antenna for those times when the campground doesn't have a cable hookup?

We have one of those that you place against the window. I think it is this one:
Amazon.com: Winegard Company FL-5000 FlatWave HDTV Indoor Digital Flat Antenna - Made in USA: Electronics




We have used it only a couple of times and it seems to work but we don't have a lot of experience with it so we can't say if it is THE solution to go with. There are folks who are using a variety of other options and maybe they will chime in.

Thank you for the antenna info. From my research so far, it looks like there are several viable options. Distance from tv stations and antenna placement seem to be key. (Reminds me of my childhood with rabbit ears, aluminum foil and the designated person to hold rabbit ear in just the right place for the best reception.)

After recently spending 30 days on the road using a Jack antenna I am sold on this product. For about $40. (Currently in store sale at CW.) you can get a get a jack antenna head and mount it to a pool pole or conduit. CW also just put the roof mount antenna on sale on line today for $140. The roof mount antenna has a signal strength meter and it rotates. The only issues I had with the roof mount was some DC fan motors cause interference when turned on and the mast is short and a roof mount A/C can block some signals if it between the antenna and the station.
This is just an option from my own experience.
