Are you going to be camping where there is electric or boondocking? Are you going to watch TV daily or just use it as rainy day entertainment.?

I purchased a $100 flat screen from Best Buy because we are not camping to watch TV. Big box store TVs are fine.

If you're going to boondock, check these places.

We bought a tv on Black Friday. A 19" flat screen with a DVD player on the side for $88. We don't go camping to watch tv but we do like to pop in a movie before we go to bed sometimes. Or rainy days of course.

Thanks,
We don't intend to do a lot of tv watching, just for rainy days or when the kids are drivinng us nuts. We are considering using the tv for the kids room both at home as well as in the trailer as I don't see much use for it in the trailer! The living room/master bed tv will probably get slightly more use.

Glad to know a normal out of box should be fine.....
I'm also not sure what size to buy. I can't find anything on specs for our trailer! The new trailers don't seem to come with the tvs so I can't even see what the manufacturer would have put in!

Buy a Chevy TV (tow vehicle) lol. But since you mean TV as in television we put a 40 flat sharp in the kids room, 36 in ours and the living has a 32. We take the 36 and put it outside for nice days (sport games)

Does your dealer have a 31QBTS on the lot for you to measure what size tv would fit? Can you wait for your unit to arrive at the dealer and take measurements?

For the kids bedroom tv I'd get one with a built in DVD player.
