Biggest TV that will fit in 21 escape

We bought a 24" Samsung for our 21
Being built this summer. We're now wondering if it's too big to mount in the space provided. What sized TV's are others using?

I put in a 22 over the nightstand; that fit well - barely protrudes past the closet cabinet.

I'd suggest waiting until you pick up your trailer and then decide on size of tv. I had 2 separate televisions in BlackJack and maybe used them a total of a dozen times in 2 years. Next Escape will only have a cable connection and a small tv for those times wanted. I do recommend getting a dvd/tv combo to watch movies, YMMV.

The stereo system that ETI sells plays DVD and CDs and works well, if you would prefer not to have the DVD player in the TV. The audio will go thru 4 speakers which is also a nice feature.

In my sticks 'n bricks, I've gone through two TV/DVD combo units. Why is it the DVD player goes out pretty quickly? I'll never buy another combo unit. DVD players are <$50 and are pretty small. If just the DVD player goes out the unit can be easily replaced. Here's a sample: Sony DVD Player YMMV

So I guess you can plug in your tv to the radio to watch and hear the movie??

a 24" TV was the largest that would fit in the cabinet

When we bought our Escape 21, I looked at a lot of TVs. The largest tv that would fit in the closet, laying on the floor, or be flat against the closet wall is a 24" TV.

You can have a longer TV if you are willing to have the TV extend into the aisle, or to angle the TV a bit. Then you would have to think about what you are going to do with the TV when moving -- leave it up, lay it on the bed, or figure out another way to store it.

We use a Jensen TV and a Jensen Radio/DVD. We can have the TV sound come out of the radio speakers, which is nice. When we watch tv we use the speakers above the bed.

Exactly. BTW, I will have photos later today of the safety chains on the Andersen when hitched.

We have a 19" TV which fits perfectly on the cabinet above the furnace. It also plugs into the stereo and feeds through the speakers. Loren.

We installed an identically sized Samsung in our U shaped dinette on the side of the frig (driver side), the side of the dinette I sit. I installed a Master Mounts TV arm. The TV sticks out an inch or two beyond the frig, but does not interfere with my entrance or egress to dinette with the OEM table. I am 5'9", 145. I probably had enough clearance I could have moved the TV mount so that the TV did not stick out at all. Neither one of us complain about the TV screen being too big. I follow ETI's recommendation and dismount the TV when moving. Cliff
