TV size

Not a scamp, but I'm pretty happy with this 24" and the Premier FLIP mount.

I use books-on-tape or actual books to put my Grandkids to sleep when we're camping....as if they have any energy left over after the activities of the day!

If you don't have room for a television, grab a book and read to the kids. Voice inflection for the different characters, etc. Soothing voice and the entire family will fall asleep! Televisions are great. I fall asleep (with the TV on a timer) nearly every night. But a good/decent book can do the same thing. It's about relaxing....

The TV in our CT13 Uhaul sets on a cutting board over the sink, can be turned in any direction. We don't use the sink.

You can get a portable 7" or 9" DVD player for $80 ( and probably cheaper in U.S. and on Amazon ).
If the kids are under six years old, you only have to carry one DVD and they'll watch it over and over.

Can't help at all with this question. One of the best things about camping for us is - getting away from canned entertainment.

Out door activities will tire them out, and a book and storyteller is Great advice. However on a rainy day...A child's DVD might be a very good thing!

My new Escape 5er... is gonna have TWO televisions. I'm not sure if I'll connect to the outside world to check the current news. BUT, I will have a DVD player. (bought 49 DVDs on eBay... the ENTIRE Star Trek Next Generation series!). I'm a single traveler. Someday my granddaugher will join me. She had BETTER be a Star Trek fan ). Who should I be to tell you how to entertain yourself or your guests? Never.

This is what we use.
The brand is Polaroid.
It has a built-in DVD player.
Draw back on this is the volume isn't
always loud enough on some of the DVDs.
I have a collection of over 300 DVDs.

There are no lack of TV threads here and a little searching will yield many ideas?

The question is really the same for a TV in a house and there are as many answers here as there would be for the house so look around and become inspired!

Some here find a 7" Screen to be fine and others a computer doing the job. Some only seem satisfied with a 32" set shoehorned in with a full surround system.

Anything is just fine if that is what you like.

On the other hand......what makes people answer a question like this with editorial comments about the virtues of TV watching anyway?!?!?!

I am with Donna here,who am I to question the motive and purity of reason behind anyones choice of entertainment while camping?

I'm just a Kid at heart and found TV to much trouble to deal with unless you have cable so I have chosen the route of DVD player. Mine is a 9 inch RCA model. I have used it for my camping trips all last year and actually enjoy the hunt for Used DVD's during my camping excursions. I enjoy all the SCI-FY stuff.
As for real kids they dont need TV you just stuff them with Marshmellows, Hershey bars, and Ghram crackers untill they pass out.
