    In a Romahome size matters! I would set the absolute maximum screen size at 10".

    I bought a Roadstar 7" flat screen (LCD 7114) which is extremely compact, weighs next to nothing, and takes up hardly any space at all. Picture quality is very good too.

    Here is the same model selling on ebay which isn't a bad price as I paid £60 for mine two years ago!

    Just noticed.....what this seller hasn't mentioned is these TV's come as a complete kit with all leads, connectors and a remote, and will power off 240v/12v or batteries. There are sockets at the back which you can use to run an mp4 player through as well.

    Sorry cannot help re TV as still looking for a decent set. Have tried a different set from Maplins and it was rubbish ( they don't sell it anymore and the one suggested may be ok).

    When looking can I suggest that you find one that is designed to run on mains and 12volt (borrowed a set to try out and ended up on site with no hookup and mains TV:RollEyes: ) Have know some people buy a mains only set from shop that comes with a mains lead that includes a transformer to drop power to 12 volt, then make up their own power lead for 12 volt straight from the leisure battery to TV but have been told this can damage the TV. (sure someone else on the site with a better understanding can clarify)

    Don't know what type of aerial set up you have I am working on one of these digital flying saucer types that came with the van to be honest reception is useless so would suggest trying to find one with DVD player then at least you can watch something.

    If you get a TV and like me find poor reception or no signal it may as in my case be the aerial rather than the TV

    Best of luck

    TV for camper

    Hi we bought the Meos 12* from We Do Digital think it was £189.99
    it has built in DVD player and a built in battery, it will work for about 2-3 hours on its own battery or on 12v if no hook up.
    We bought the Avtex portable digital Aeriel to run it that just plugs into the van,s 12v socket. This can be mounted on the outside of the van if needed.
    We have had no problems would recommend it, try doing a search on threads for MEOS
    Best of luck. - Sue
