2017 32DS bedroom TV question

Has anyone replaced that TV with a new slightly bigger TV that is a smart TV with a usable USB port to watch movies? I see that it is tapped with mounting screws though the flip up cabinet door. I have not measured yet to see if a regular 100/200 mount will fit. Looking at a Samsung UN28M4500A 28" model to replace the TV there, Smart, WIFI, and a usable USB port for movies and pictures.

I have not replaced the TV,but I use a Roku adapter while on the road. I either stream from the camps WiFi or I use my phone as a Hot Spot.

Iím surprised youíve found campground WiFi that is stream-worthy.

And unless youíre paying extra for premium WiFi, youíre typically sucking up your neighborís bandwidth. Itís all shared and one user streaming can really cripple it for everyone else.

Times have changed, if wifi is included with the campsite itís up to them to provide a service that works. Itís not like years ago when Netflix was the only option, now most services are going cloud based and require internet access. The streaming sites can adjust the bandwidth for poor signals and resolution for many different size devices. If a campground wants to restrict it they can block ports and sites they wish to.

I ordered a mount from Amazon that is an electric ceiling mount for up to a 55" TV that I'm going to try to mount to the roof in the bedroom so the tv is against the roof traveling then just push a button and it comes down. Not sure if it will work though since the unit itself weighs 61lbs without a tv mounted on it... Not sure how strong that roof is up there!!!
