Red face HD TV for trailer

Anyone can recommend a 24 inch TV brand that is clear while lying in bed?? Have a FR Cherokee Gray Wolf that has a cabinet for the TV set--It is up toward ceiling and view is very distorted while lying down on bed--Have tried 2 different TV's and no luck so far.----

You may need to angle the set downward. All flat screen TVs have an "optimum viewing angle" and they are different for each model and manufacturer. LCDs, Plasma, and some of the newer types are ALL different. Go to the web site to look for one with the biggest downward angle.

Again, a mount that points down may be your only choice.

You might want to mount the tv to an angled wooden platform.

Try these folks Peerless Products
They make a variety of mounts including wall, articulating wall and many that tilt. Once you find one that looks right - copy the model number and google it to find a retailer.

Plasma HDTV's have a slightly better side angle view than LCD's, but you need a fairly large TV for plasma screens. I believe they begin at 32" on up. Randy

True, but plasmas are poor travelers and campers.
Very fragile and high energy consumption. They have very delicate circuitry and display systems.

They consume about 5 times the amps of a LCD and 10 times more than an LED set.
