We have a 1972 Ambassador and If you can and if so how can do you fit this vintage trailer with a flat screen TV?

Thank you so much pictures and all. We also, need advice on the wiring of the TV for antenna, receiver, satellite providers and which products and services are best for your dollar?

There is a big thread on satellite services and equipment on this forum, I can't help on the satellite thing as I haven't used satellite in a vehicle in well over a decade.

We get by with a small indoor antenna and a Roku.

We don't have cable or satellite service in our home. We use a Jack Antenna and are able to pull in about 15 channels. We also use a Jack Antenna when camping in the Airstream. See items 20-22 in my thread "Dan's '66 Tradewind Improvements" I mount the Jack on a flagpole. It works fine unless you are deep in the mountains. We have a 21" TV powered with 12v, so no inverter needed, and we also power the Jack Antenna off the 12v power supply. It comes with both a 12v or 120v power supply.

Good Luck, Dan
