    looks good value, not a brand I have ever heard of, roughly 2A draw on your battery, not sure how that compares to other LED TV's but massively better than the bad old days

    Its a biggish set though, do you need 22"?

    If you do and it fits, give it a go, its not a lot to lose

    Wow, 22inch is that screen plus surround? Have you decided where it's going? Cut a piece of card out to check how big it's going to be in place if I were you.

    I thought it was a good price. But know nothing about what's really needed for in. MH.

    Need? Many will tell you nobody needs a TV in a MH, so presuming you have passed that moral question

    Have you got an aerial fitted already, without that a TV is pretty much useless and will add a lot to the cost to get one fitted

    If you have a satellite dish this may not be compatible with that

    Other than I still think it will probably be too big (y)

    I agree 22" may be too big 15"-17" would be more practical

    Also do you have a photo of the vans roof + the TV internal wiring which should also include a signal booster It'll probably be in an overhead locker

    Two kids say we need a TV lol. And it will probably be our only way to get a little peace.
    We have a aerial already fitted so fingers crossed that may be OK.
    Might rethink size tho. That's what previous owner advised us that he used on the wall bracket that's already fitted in MH.

    Why would it not be compatable with a sat dish ?

    I quote with very little skill level

    only that we have sat TV's fitted, which as far as I know only take satellite inputs

    but I have probably been sold a pup, wouldn't be the first time

    As with previous post I would consider the size. Bigger isn't necessarily better especially if it is too close to where you sit. I only have a small PVC but find that the 19" is fine.

    It says it's Ex Display, I wouldn't touch it, could have been in use constantly for 8 - 10 hours day & well past it's sell by date.
    As others have said 22" is on the big side for a Motorhome, we have a 19" and it's fine for viewing even from the far end of the van.
