I have now fitted a TV in the camper. Thinking I might me able to use it, that is if there is any reception to watch some television while travelling around.
I had thought I might be doing a trips this year, it still might happen, but now waiting to see how things go.

The TV is a Medion 21.5 led 12v TV /DVD mounted to a Single arm TV bracket.

I also brought a  Topline TV Antenna which has a booster built in. Although I it uses 240v to 12v transformer for the injector, I will get a 12v injector so I do not need ac power at all.
I used a three sliding tent pole for the antenna mast which can stay mounted on the front storage box.

The antenna cable needed to go through the side folding wall so I used I a Fold Away Direct Connector so the antenna can be plugged directly to the TV,
As the TV is 12V I and also fitted a new 12V wall socket in with a extra USB outlet.

Nice one. 

Even if not used for TV the DVD players are very handy.  We often raid the DVD cupboard before heading off.

Nice to be tucked up inside on a wet winters night with the diesel heater running and a glass or two of raspberry cordial watching a movie.

We had satellite TV in our last caravan and found it to be pretty good.  If it wasn’t for weight restrictions would have put one on the motorhome.

I always said I did not want a TV, but I think it will come in use at times.
I actually do not even own a DVD, I have a lot of movies on our NAS so I can transfer to a Hard drive and use the on board USB socket if I want to.

We seldom watch TV on the road.
But as Derek said, on a wet day or evening it’s good.
I prefer the radio.

We don't watch much TV either but it can come in handy. You have a good setup by the looks mate.

Enjoy the time away. We were to head away Saturday for a couple of weeks but there is supposed to be some heavy rain over the weekend and where we were going is black soil so we will have to delay for a few days.
