I'm on a similar budget, Morrisons do a 16" techwood tv/dvd LCD, back lit with LEDs so low consumption, about £110, found flip down brackets on eBay for about £25

I had the Techwood TV from Morrison's, viewing angle is terrible, if you are not watching straight on the picture goes black, and the DVD failed, in the end I returned it and got my money back.

They do exactly the same TV at Tesco cheaper, but a different badge

tv flipped up made a quick release strap to hold it as close to the headliner as possible :ILU:
that looks smart as how did you attach it to the roof ive seen a few threads about bonding ply to the roof and then attaching the tv to the ply, but im not sure i would trust the bond to hld with all the vibrations and movemnt of the van!!!! been thinking how to do it but cant think of another way to do it yet!!!!

where i wanted it mounted there was room under the roof supports to notch i think it was 2x1 in between the 2 and made a h fame inbetween to 2 battens notched out under to roof supports i then refitted the headling and fitted the flip down bracket to the h frame no silkaflex used good old fashioned screws as the tv is a fair weight and theres a lot of pot holes in ssummerzet hope this helps T:
