I am looking to replace my old tube style TV with a flat screen. I would like to know if anyone has recommendations for brands that worked for them. Was vibration or mounting a problem? I am looking for a 22-24 inch TV. Thanks

Mine is only a 19" but it has been fine for last 2 years as far as mounting, vibration, etc. We picked a Phillips because of it being on sale.

Here's link to short write up and photos of change - LCD TV Mod

The TV cabinet in my camper has the pull-out swivel stand designed for the old CRT 13" models. I bolted a center mount to the stand for a flat screen. I changed TV's this past year from an 04 flat screen 17" model to a 22" Vizio. Three advantages... no more analog/digital converter box; thinner, less weight, with bigger screen; and great picture. Oh... and the price was right this time. About $229. If I get another 7-8 yrs out of this one, I'll be happy.

We've been impressed by our 26" Vizio LED purchased at WM. It's a little large to sit inside the bedroom cabinet, so DH installed it on an arm. It's so slim, it sits out about as much as the raised cabinet doors on either side.

Just bought a 22" Visio at Costco for $195 plus tax. Old 13" CRT still works in the front cabinet. I'll probably set it on the shelf in the bedroom to watch there and lay it on the bed during travel. These things are so small and portable they don't really need mounting. Will probably use the set in our house kitchen and/or on the patio hooked to basic TW cable. Here is a mount that comes with two wall "receptacles" so you can lift out TV and front part of mount and move TV, etc., to another mount. (front to rear in RV, in home , etc)

Grub,

That 24 in. Naxa Flat Screen LED TV looks like an excellent TV for RVs.

Especially for drycamping .. it just sips the battery power because it uses LED backlighting. It's the largest size (24 in) flat screen LED TV I've come across that can still be powered directly from a 12V RV receptacle. That built-in DVD player is also extremely difficult to find in a 12V powered LED flat screen TV of any size. It appears to have swing-arm mounting bracket holes in it's backside, too.

Great choice!

We just upgraded from a 15in to a 24in Naxa Flat Screen. It runs on 12 volt so even while boon-docking if we get the urge to watch a flick we can!

We started with a 15 but it wasn't usable from one end of the pop-up to the other in the evenings. This TV has a better viewing angle as well as audio, well worth the upgrade in our opinion.
