99% of the time there is no tv signal where we camp, so we just keep the tv in a large laptop bag under the seat.
when we take it out to watch, we just put it on the stove cover.

I do like the rca 22 inch with the built in DVD, that would be like our cabin, again no tv signal but the local corner store rents dvds cheap and almost current releases.

We have a 17B and the tv was mounted to the dinette side of the fridge and was a pain in the a$$. We pretty much ripped it of the wall a number of times and had to put lots of holes in the cabinet. So we just gave up on it.
We could never figure out the best place for it.

Well I guess we did figure out the best place, under the seat...

Ditto.
I even bought an articulated TV mount from Lee Valley Tools. Spent the length of two Simpson's episodes contemplating how I would mount it. Couldn't see where it wouldn't just be a pain in head, and besides, the mount alone weighed seven pounds.
Our TV is only 15" and I have a 7" DVD player. Both are under the bed.
We have four TVs at home, 500 channels and Netflix, so I'm not against TV. I just can't be bothered with it when camping.

By then, Homer would have had the TV duct taped to the back window. The outside of the back window.
