Smile Comments on MiniLite 1809S

Considering purchasing Rockwood Mini Lite 1809S or Flagstaff 18FBKS. Same trailer, different decals. Question: Can TV mounted in rear be seen or heard from slide out couch. Are there any other design problems worth noting. Please comment if you own these models.

Greetings. I have a '15 1809S and can affirm that the TV can swivel so one can watch it from both the bed and the sofa. The TV has a "locked" to-the-wall position for travel which allows some swivel rotation, then it also can be pulled out from the wall lock permitting quite a bit additional side-to-side rotation. It can also detach completely from the interior wall and be mounted on the exterior wall outside above the BBQ grill anchor bracket.
I really like this unit, so please ask away on any other concerns.

Older 1809's also had TV/Satelite connection at end of bed next to 110 outlet. Is there one on the 2015 model. Just so DW can watch TV in bed!

That cable connection is not on my 2015 unit. The two that I have available are behind the TV and on the curbside exterior wall.

Though our 1809S is a 2010 & before the mounted TV - ours sets on the cloths closet & we have found that Joan can recline on the sofa & if I bring my outdoor reclining lawn chair in we can both watch TV comfortably. As a side note we fold up the table & lay it on the bed.
