Bedroom TV

Howdy Globetrotters!

We own a 2020 25FB Globetrotter and have enjoyed it greatly over the past 4 years.

In all our travels, we have yet to use the bedroom TB for anything other than a clothes hook. We decided on our recent 2 month SW adventure that we should get rid of the TV.

I'm curious if anyone else has done this and what learnings they had. Did you put something in its place?

Thanks for sharing your experiences.

Also, let me know if you'd like a good deal on a nearly new LG TV.

We have a new globetrotter on order and really wish there was a tv delete option for the bedroom. Iíll be curious what responses you get.

We have a 25FB FC. We replaced the tv with a a brushed nickel clothes hook bar we got at Home Depot. Serves a purpose and gives more room to get by the bed. We turned on the tv maybe once.

We hang a Medify MA-35 air purifier in that spot.

I cut a piece of wood that uses the same wall holes as the television mount. That allowed me to center the MA-35 on the wall. It just hangs there so it must be removed for travel, placed in bag (generic Blackstone-type bag), and stowed nearby. Someday I'll mount it in a more permanent fashion...maybe even rotated 90 degrees.

There are a couple of other air purifiers out there that might work also, such as IQair. It is smaller but I cannot vouch for its effectiveness.

We have a 2020 GT 25FBT. The TV is still in the BR, but it has never been watched. Notice I said “watched”. It’s been turned on a few times, always by accident, as it comes on if you turn on the front TV. I now “usually” remember to unplug it if we are going to turn on the front TV. The front TV doesn’t really get used much. It takes a lot of bugs, really hot or cold weather, or rain to force us inside.
I’m not sure what we would put in place of that rear TV? Maybe some kind of a shelf/storage cabinet? I just figure if I take it down, I’ll have to store it, so it can be put back in place if we ever sell. I’ve still got all the original bedding and pillows sitting in tubs, ready for the next owner.. But I don’t think we will ever part with our Globetrotter. It’s a keeper.

Well... in defense of the BR TV in our FBT, my wife watches it quite a bit. Sometimes, I'm working remotely in the back and she has something on in the front. She also likes watching to relax in bed before sleeping. I'm not that much of a TV guy, but I wouldn't throw it out. There are people like us out there.

Too funny, we’ve never used the back tv except for last night. Got in late from long busy day and we wanted 10-15 mins of noise / tv to wind down. Didn’t even go with apple tv, just some random program and poof right to sleep. We added a Bose sound bar early on, but that was overkill

So for us, not it has use / value once every 3 months. I like the air purifier idea. That we would use every day hmmmm

Was used once by one of our grand kids who came on board. They don't have cable at home and are used to on-demand shows on the Internet. We put on Saturday morning kids shows from one of the TV stations, and when I asked him how he liked the TV in the Airstream, he said it was cool, but what it was showing was very "random" and he couldn't figure it out (he was 9).

We have never otherwise used that TV; it should be an option when you purchase the trailer. Haven't removed it yet but have considered it many times, especially when it unlatches...

We have have had two 25FB's over the last eighteen years. Each one had a bedroom TV. We have over 2,200 nights of camping in them. We have rarely, if ever, turned on the bedroom televisions. I have often thought of removing these televisions, but have never gotten around to it.

Great thread.
We have 2 TVs in our 30' FC. Never turn either of them on.
The last thing we want to do when we travel is sit in front of a television.
I agree, you should be able to "opt out" of TVs.

We removed all tvs in our flying cloud 30ft fb bunk

We removed all tvs in our flying cloud 30ft fb bunk.

One space is used as a shelf, another we put this (super cool) Govee led light panel. Super bright (dims as well) and can change color from your smartphone. https://a.co/d/cfaCv6X

We use laptops for streaming videos and movies. We have never missed our tvs.

Sometimes I try to figure out a large vertically oriented tv for displaying art but thatís about it.

I removed the bedroom tv in my 2015 27’ Eddie Bauer. Also replaced front tv with a Fire TV. Works great on wifi to stream and have digital antenna for local channels. Nice to have when it’s cold and rainy outside.

Itís a great place for a painting or poster, etc. We visit galleries during our travels and occasionally pick out a piece, itís fun to rotate works from the house into the AS and back.
