Mine came with one from the factory, but maybe you can find one in an RV junk yard, or have someone build you one, the new flat screen TV's are relatively cheap. Just know that IF there is one in a junkyard, the tv probably isn't in very good shape. Most of it is the woodwork, this is mine.

My brother-in-law in the Chicago northwest suburbs is a finish carpenter/cabinet maker by trade. He did a great job on my brother's Starflyte. He reconfigured the over-cab area from a old CRT TV to a flat panel TV that hinges to access the massive storage behind it. It got quite involved but it turned out beautiful, and it looks like it was that way from day #1....not a mismatched after-thought.

I would seek a local finish carpenter/cabinet maker in your area, maybe someone advertising their services on Craigslist. A skilled carpenter can do wonders for just what you seek.

Friend of mine took one like the picture below. From Gulf Stream Super C. I can check if he still has it. If you are interested.

Bumpy, do I understand yoy that you can get the parts to put one together from Winnebago? I just bought a 2017 31KP and would love to convert the sleeping loft.

Ours has one but it is not much use for watching TV IMO. Back of the cab, we have the ? usual? dinette on one side and the two comfy chairs on the other side.

You can watch the TV up there ok from the comfy swivel chair farther back, but not from the comfy chair behind the passenger seat. (Not too comfy sitting at the table for very long in ours, so that's out.)

We have the TV loose and sit it on the dinette table across from the two chairs for perfect viewing. When not being watched, the 32" TV is stashed on the floor between the cab passenger chair and the front comfy chair.

The over the cab area is still where the music and DVD/VCR (we still have that) go and has lots of cupboard space.

You can have the best of both worlds. On my 2017 Greyhawk, it has the overhead bunk, but the TV lies flat against the right side of the bunk. Press a button and it electrically swings out for viewing if your at the couch. I really like the setup.
