Televisions.

Can you use a regular TV in a trailer? The manufacturers charge a lot for a little TV. For under $100. We can have one.

Sure. If you expect to have 120V everywhere, that is. If you're into boon docking, remote campgrounds etc. you might want to look for a TV that can run straight off 12V DC, inverters are not very efficient.

yes you can get a cheap TV. I have seen 24" units at Walmart for like $79... unless you are close to a city the antenna on your trailer may be the weak link to picking up stations if you are remote to a big city. Of course if you are only looking at doing a DVD while it rains outside... then it is easy.

Thanks, I figured so, but there was such a price difference I thought maybe the rough ride would not go over well. Our wolf pub 16fq has inly a tiny spot for one. Poor design on it.

We have several 'regular' tvs in our rig. They hold up just fine.

As I occasionally go over rough dirt roads I remove the TV and put it onto the bed and wrap it in the blanket. Removes the load from the mount and cushions the vibrations of the TV.
