The DW is dead set against watching tv while camping. I mostly agree. The few shows we like, will be on the PVR when we get back.

My 2016 Windjammer 3029W came with a 42" 1080p LED LG television in the entertainment center. It's a great television.

I added another identical LG 42" LG television outside under the awning and I added a 26" LG 720p LED television in the bedroom.

Each television has its own DirecTv receiver, with the one in the entertainment center being a DVR so we can watch what we want when we want on any television.

My preferred method of reception is DirecTv which I receive using a standard dish on a tripod that I setup wherever I go. I can always find a hole in the trees no matter how dense the foliage, and it usually takes me no more than ten minutes to get setup. If, for some reason I couldn't hit the satellites, I would use park cable if it was any good and if it wasn't, I would then resort to over-the-air broadcast.

How are you setup for television entertainment?

What did you do for a mounting bracket in the bedroom? There's an option which includes a 20 inch and has a under the cabinet mount which I do not have. I'm very interested in what you used in the bedroom for a mount. Also a 42 inch on the outside how in the world do you support it? Any pictures? Thanks

32" Toshiba came in the rockwood fiver. Hides behind the fireplace. I added an articlating arm with 2 mounts for the bedroom and outside. Put a LG 24" w/DVD in the bedroom and move it to the outside mount when needed. Outside mount is inside the storage hole and articulating arm allows for swinging around to any angle. Use cable hookup when available, antenna when not, with antenna finder app on smart phone. Always got DVDs available too. All seasons of Frazier, Sienfeld and Raymond. They'll put you to sleep when nothing else will. 🙍

We have a 15.6" flatscreen Skyworth 12 volt TV/DVD on a swivel mount that we can see from almost any spot in the camper (bathroom excluded). Works great for catching up the news and weather and the occasional DVD, even when dry camping. We mostly use the antennae, but use cable if available.

If DW could not watch tv then I would have to stay home. We have Direct tv, as soon as I get the camper set up then the satellite dish goes up. I think DW likes NCIS more than me. I plan to install a LG 49in TV in camper and take out the Jensen, the LG will be 3D. I have right many movies in 3D and that I like to watch

For my bedroom television I bought a generic stand that mounts to the VESA threads on the back. The base of the stand is glass, large and heavy, so it stays in place while in tow. My dealer is trying to get me the factory mounting hardware for mounting to the bottom of the overhead cabinet, but I think I prefer using the stand.

For the outside television I use a GOstik suction cup mount. It's not cheap, but it is well worth the price as far as I'm concerned. It will hold up to 30 pounds (my television weighs 22 pounds) on the side of any smooth surface, like the fiberglass on my Windjammer. I can put the television wherever I want, whenever I want. I also have a weatherproof cover for my outside television so I don't have to worry about the rain and just leave it outside all of the time. Here is a link to the GOstik:

Have a 32" Vizeo in the LR and a 27" Vizeo in the bedroom. One Dish receiver to control them both.
