Question Dashboard Level TV Removal - What do you replace it with?

OK folks, here's my first question about Replacing CRT TV's (Probably the first of, but not limited to, a 'million' other questions)

1998 Georgie Boy Pursuit 33' MH

The CRT TV is still mounted in the center of the dash, and DW and I have agreed (which doesn't happen all that often) that it's bulky, heavy and needs to be pulled out and replaced with a flat panel LCD, mounted overhead, but still in the center of the front of the coach.

I have a pretty good plan on how to mount the Flat Panel TV overhead, but it leaves me with what to do with the gaping hole in the dash. For those of you who replaced your TV's how did you deal with this?

Thanks for your input, in advance.

Most people add shelves to the hole and a new door to add a little storage space.

It would be nice if you posted a picture of what yours looks like now. You'll get much better input from forum readers.

How about a GIANT Glove box. Library shelves, Charger station for phones, iPods, handheld radios, etc., small dog or cat kennel. A bar. Let your imagination go!

Currently, the coach is at our local RV service shop having the chassis electrics and the genny looked at, plus a routine spring service completed. Remember, this coach didn't move for over 6 years, and I was already out of my maintenance schedule comfort zone driving it the 125 miles back home from the sellers home on 6+ year old engine oil.

I'm hoping it will be back later next week and we can start to get a game plan together of our modifications and adjustments we'll have on tap........ and take a lot more pictures.

I came across that posting, while I was lurking around. That's a great job! If my repositioning of the TV turns out half as good as that, I'd be ecstatic.

I'll try to get pictures out here as quickly as I can.

I built a box inside of the hole, faced it with a piece of finished oak plywood. I then mounted a Jensen Avm975 am/fm,cd/DVD player and above that I installed an Omnimount play20 interactive tv mount to mount my 24" flat screen. I pulled power out of the plug in the overhead to run a new 110 outlet inside the box to plug the tv into. I also disconnected the ignition over ride relay in order for the Jensen to play while I'm driving(the tv is not mounted while in motion), that's a big no no! I keep all the cables in the glove box, when setting up pull them out, hook up to tv and we're watching tv! If I can figure out how to post pictures I will do so.

Thats a good set up too. I like how the screen is removable but you didnt have to cut up the existing cabinetry....

Lots to think about before I pick up a hacksaw.....
