Where to buy small TV

We just bought our firs travel trailer and would like to install a TV. Based on the small size of the trailer and where all the electrical and cable hook-ups are located in the ceiling, I can get somewhere between a 14" and 16" diagonal flat screen. I've looked at Amazon, Walmart, NewEgg, etc. and there are not many to choose from. Only brands I have never heard of like Naxa and Supersonic. Where can I find a name-brand small TV?

The Best Buy Insignia brand TV has a 12vdc wall wart so it is real easy to run them off your battery! No inverter or generator needed to watch TV at night. I bought a 24" model with a DVD player built in. Plus the price is reasonable.

The guys in the blue shirts also indicated to me on more than one occasion, the 'guts' of the Insignia TVs were either LG or Panasonic and Insignia was just Best Buy's branding.

Tiger Direct has good deals.

ALSO - When your shopping, consider a TV that will operate on 12 volts, You can then wire it directly to your battery and no need for shore power or an inverter.

I would strongly recommend actually viewing the tv before buying it. We bought a small tv for our last RV it was great as long as the viewing angle was straight on. Once you got more than about 20degrees, the picture was almost impossible to see. Many small ( especially no name ) tv's use low quality displays. Most RV's do not have many straight on viewing positions.
