When I bought my 2002 Casita
FD, the previous owner had done some modifications to the TV shelf that I did not like. He had drilled two very small holes above the shelf (the holes aren't bad at all) and installed a pair of bars to add strength to the shelf so that he could keep the TV/VCR combo up all of the time. He had also screwed three small aluminum L-plates to additionally keep the TV in place (these were screwed directly into the TV shelf).
So last Saturday my wife and I decided to take the whole mess down and give the little TV/VCR to our teenaged son. The first owner did a neat job of drilling two holes in the fiberglass above the TV shelf--they were small enough for 1/8" threaded rod and not very noticeable. The TV shelf has a lot of screw holes in it, but we can cover that with a doily.
So, we are going to buy a new TV for the Casita
. We were thinking of a flat screen TV. I was searching the net and saw that there are some decent under-the-counter models around with DVD players. Panasonic has some really good models, it seems.
Anyone here have any suggestions they could make based on their own experiences? I can use the two small holes the original owner drilled to secure the under-the-counter TV and not even need
the shelf unless I wanted to use it for something else.
Oh. I want to keep the TV/DVDplayer budget in the $250 to $400 range (total).
