    Hi all, we have just put our deposit on our first MH. Collect a week tommorow. Its a Bessacarr E560 on a 57 plate with only 8.5k from 3A's in Cross Hands!

    Very excited and lots of questions to post, such as 'Do we need to buy a MH specific TV?'

    Hopefully we wont annoy anybody too much!

    Richie and Mandy

    Hi and Welcome,

    depends how you use it, maybe go for 12v tv if you intend to camp without EHU, otherwise any freeview TV will be fine

    Good luck with your new lifestyle

    Hi & welcome! We have lots of lovely Funsters from Wales so you are in good company:) If you are thinking about a 12v tv then have a look at Finlux http://finlux.co.uk/search?q=12v&searchsubmit=Go - best that we found. Also good aerial http://www.avtex.co.uk/index.php/antenna/sth2000.html & easy release mount http://www.visionplus.co.uk/shop/vision-plus-quick-release-tv-bracket-grey.html. Avtex hard sided cases are good for storage too http://www.avtex.co.uk/index.php/accessories/carrying-cases.html. Hope that helps - sure you will get a few more suggestions for other options soon but watch the energy consumption of tv if thinking of running off battery/solar instead of EHU.
