Flat Screen for Travel Trailers

I just purchased a Wildwood 21' and would like to install a flat screen. I was told to only use the Jensen models because they are built for travelling. Is that correct or was the salesman just feeding me high grade manure?

Bull. We currently have Toshiba and Vizio units in our MH. Have had Vizio in my three prior units also.

and let me guess....he had a jensen to sell ya!!?? LOL

mine came with some weird brand i never heard of....it works fine..

i put it in the bedroom and put a slim frame 36" in the living room...vizio... it works fine...

i put a 22" sony in the bunkhouse..... it works fine

we carry a 55" sometimes to mount on the outside...we lay it flat on memory foam in the bedroom while traveling

......it works fine...

i leave em all in the trailer all winter long with no special prep or storage....

i have a 36" vizo on my outdoor home patio that has been there for 6 years......its under the patio roof, so no direct elements...but it sits out in the humidity, heat, cold, dirt and has been fine thus far....it works fine...



the only difference i can see with an rv model that may make it better is if it ran on 12 volt....so you didnt need an inverter if you didnt have shore or genny power..

$440 for the a Jensen 26"+ $28 for the ACDC converter makes it very expensive.

I've had dynex, polaroid, lg, sanyo and Toshiba. Never a problem with any. My brothers Laredo came with Jensen and its been fine too. Just mount it good or protect it while traveling so it doesn't get tossed around.
