29RE TV in Living Room

We purchased a 2014 29RE and all the CC brochures show a TV on the back wall extending the full width of the mantle over the fireplace....Our TV is in about 6" in on each side. We questioned why the brochures show a larger TV and they said that is what comes with that trailer.. We have seen one trailer on a lot with the larger one....TV in br is the same size......

MY question to fellow owners of 29RE's......What size TV was installed in your 5th wheeler?
Might have to go to small claims court.......

We have a 2013 29 RE and I believe we have a 32 " TV. You didn't mention what size you have?

My 2014 29RE came with a Jensen JE3914 39 inch TV in the living room. It measures 35x21 inches edge to edge. Bedroom TV is a Jensen JE2814 28 inch TV.

Jim in Halifax, just out of curiosity does your 29 RE have an opening at the left front landing leg that allows you to see into the cargo area? You would have to look from underneath the trailer near the landing leg to see this opening approx 5 square inches. Also do you have electric or hydraulic landing legs?

This opening has been a problem for a few owners of the Silverback model trailers!

You are looking at an older brochure and the windows are wider in those models. The current production of the 29 RE has windows that have less width making the TV look smaller. Go to the Forest River website and on the floorplans page for Silverback click on the images for the 29RE. You will notice there is about 6 inches on each side of the TV. You can also download the current brochure.
The 29RE has always had a 32" television. Quit looking for problems that don't exist and go out and enjoy your new and beautiful fifth wheel.

Okay, I ordered 2015 Silverback on May 2. Picking it up in about two weeks. Our paper work shows there are 3 packages or equipment upgrades. (1) Silverback Explorer pkg. (2) Silverback Special pkg. And (3) New Silverback improvements pkg. We went for all 3 and it shows 39" TV with improvement pkg. Anyway hope this helps.

Our 2013, 29RE has a 32" that fills the area between the windows nicely.
