We dont really get involved in tv for vans as my thinking is unless you spend £1000, its going to be a pile of cheap chinese rubbish that wont work. And unless you keep the van in a garage, an expensive unit wont stay there for long:(.
Having proved that point by trying an xtrons unit for a customer, i am after any recommendations that people may have where £3-400 gets a half decent tv with dvd......it needs to be able to use tv.

Cheers

Avtex W164DRS on a Svensen SV6.0 bracket. Had one in my first camper and now just fitted one in my new camper. Fitted it on the underside of the roof bed and updated the struts to cope with the extra 3kg. Run the power and the aerial down the topside of the bed and then down the units and pick up the 12v and put the coaxial into a socket and all is plug and play.

Totally agree. If I wanted a TV in my van it would be an AVTEX and wall mounted. The only problem with roof mounting a normal TV is that it doesnt look particularly integrated etc.....do you have any pictures in case I am swayed.

With the Drop downs personally I thinks it better to have a unit 11- 15 inches in size
Any bigger and things like reversing get trickier

Also think its better to have a separate tuner DVBT

The aerial I have is an Avtex one and I just plug it into the socket at the front of the units behind the drivers seat then just run it out through the drivers window.
I am looking for an aerial I can use going along and have seen the dynamic aerials from Kenwood/Alpine and the like.
I'm just going to bite the bullet and buy one and see how I get on. Watch this space!
