Forgive me for getting all nostalgic, but this thread reminds me of the years we towed our Starcraft Pop-Up Trailer up into the High Sierra Nevada Mountains to places like Lone Pine, and Convict Lake, and Mammoth Mountain,and especially Red's Meadow. We had a 9-inch, 12-volt TV/VHS Player mounted on a box between the front seats of our Chevy Van. While I drove, my wife would play a variety of VHS educational tapes for our two young daughters sitting in the back seats. Meanwhile, our 75-pound Yellow Labrador slept on the couch/hide-a-bed in the back of the van. Memories like that are still clear in my mind after more than 40 years. God bless all of you who are building similar memories with your families.

I know...

I'm shedding tears remembering dragging my old 20" tube TV that weighed around 40 pounds through that camper door from the house and back all of those years.

Speaking of back...I think my back still hurts from that!


New Mexico for now.

I have two of them and have had them for five years in two different campers.

Love them and no straps needed!

That looks great! In our previous camper I used a strap to secure the TV fully retracted while traveling.

Never had a problem with it, this looks even easier.
