which television?

We want to get a new LED TV for the Airstream, 22-25" and would appreciate any recommendations. The more we look, the more confused, and plan on using the antenna for now.
Thanks

which TV

More than the brand, I would insure that your new TV has a thumbdrive slot or DVD drive (for movies) and multiple HDMI ports. Samsung is probably the largest and most popular TV manufacturer today.

Almost any "name brand" TV will be more than enough to use in your Airstream. We've had our 22" LG (LCD) television for several years, and had zero issues with it. We have a larger Magnavox LED in our house, and it works great. Almost every well-known brand has at least HDMI ports, and most have an SD card or USB connection.

If you look close you can find some that are 12v as well as 110. Like many laptop computers that plug into the wall they are also 18v or similar DC. We found a DVD/TV combo at HHGregg that was 24 inch. They often do not list that it is 12v on the package. the way to tell is to look at the power supply. If it has a transformer like a laptop cord you can read what the voltage that it runs on. We use the regular plug when we are plugged in but have the option to use 12v when boon-docking. It has come in handy when we have been traveling and stop at a outlet mall for the wife to shop. I can hang out in the stream and rest with some brainless stuff to distract from the road.

I am looking for a 12 volt tv as well. I have seen several at the local truck stops, also several on line. Let us know which one you buy and how it works out.

We picked up a Proscan 19" TV/DVD at HH Gregg for about $150 on sale. I think they had a 22" AS WELL. 12VDC output wall-wort power supply.
DVD is OK. The over the air tuner is very good.
This was a good size for the Tradewind. Fits nicely on the dresser in the bedroom and above the fridge up front.

Tv

we ended up with a 22" Samsung, swing out mount on the wall encasing the refridg, I will have to check the owner's manual but it does have a converter to 12V so assume that it could run on 12V with the right cord. Got a great deal at Walmart, 1080p HD

stupid question:
when i look at bestbuy.com and i find that or a very similar Insigna w/ built in dvd, how do i determine if it's 12v? nothing, that i can find, indicates voltage. did you have to go into an actual store and look at the power plug/adapter? thanks, markr

Exactly. I went in and looked at each adapter to look for 12v.

I did not read this thread, just the title. Here is my response; NO TV. Leave it at home along with your worries, you are Airstreaming.

we won't likely be watching tv much whilst on the road - vacationing . . . however, the trailer will also serve, in my case, as a backyard family room so to speak, where we will occasionally watch tv . . . most likely a movie . . . or maybe a baseball game . . . now get back to work Frank

(i always wanted to use "whilst" in a sentence . . .)
