We also have the 22" Skyworth and have been very happy with it - the picture and sound are better than we were expecting, and the built in DVD player is very convenient.

We also really like this mount in our 5.0TA: https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/...?ie=UTF8&psc=1. It attaches very securely with a couple of large wood screws on the end of the bulkhead wall at the foot of the bed on the passenger side. It has a unique locking system that locks it into place all the way back against the wall for travel, and then you just pull a chain to unlock it and the arm easily (but not too loosely) can be moved into position with the TV facing the bed or the dinette.

Here's an anti-recommendation: Don't buy a Jensen 12V TV. Mine was heavy, expensive ($300 for 22-inch screen) and it gave me problems. I finally abandoned it at my county landfill's electronics recycling station. Grrrr.

I good 120V smart TV is my preference. If you don't have a built in inverter, a small portable one, 200W or 300W will work for the TV and laptop.

Mind you, when camping we rarely watch TV, as campfires, games or reading are more or thing.

We have had ours for a while without any problems. That said, if I had to do it over again, I would probably just buy a regular tv and use a small inverter for the few times that we use a tv.

I did a quick look on Amazon and found several, just do your home work before buying one.
