Re: "The Other TV"

At 19" it looks fairly big in there, even from the dinette end. Do you like the size, or would you go bigger/smaller if you bought one again?

Re: "The Other TV"

Hi: Jim...What the Prev. Owners had in there was a 13"... Too Small Goldielocks!!! 19" is becoming the industry standard for the smallest flat screens. There is very little difference between 15"& 19" as the screens are measured diagonally so the case doesn't widen by the same #'s. The TV just clears the light fixture under the cabinet by 3/4" so I think 19" is as big as it gets. When sitting in the dinette it looks small and from the bed it looks bigger and I like THAT aspect!!!
escape artist N.S. of Lake Erie p.s. the swivel arm was already mounted by Reace so I didn't want to make more holes...and he knew where he put the reinforcing in the wall also!!!

Re: "The Other TV"

Very nice! It certainly looks larger than a 19". Is it mounted on the edge between the bed and the side counter wall?

Re: "The Other TV"

Hi: Sandra L... Thanks. Here's a pic of the mounting. I didn't do this...it was already there when we bought the trailer. All I had to do was screw the TV onto it!!!

Insignia makes a 15" LCD.
