I removed our bedroom CRT TV from it's cabinet and installed a flat screen on an adjustable hinge in front, all covered by a nice raised panel door, so we have cabinet space, lots of it because they hinge is on the wall not intruding into the cabinet space, and TV as well, and a door to cover the TV when not in use, best of both.

Satisfy's all potential buyers because if they really do not want a TV it is removable leaving a cabinet with a door. And then they would have an up to date flat screen to use elsewhere.

Maybe I'm just an old curmudgeon ( ) but if the lack of a bedroom TV were a deal breaker, I'd walk away. A buyer like that will be a real jerk about other petty things before you're through.

The bedroom TV is used as much as the front TV.

I removed the cabinet door and replace it with 1/2" plywood the same size. I drilled holes in the door and bolted the tv to the door using grade 8 bolts . I have the tv and the cabinet.

We removed the rear TV, but the coax to it is still in place. We use the TV cabinet for storage and created a door for it from a framed picture we took from our home. If some future purchaser wanted a TV in the bedroom, removing the picture and putting it in would be trivial.

I favor this set-up idea. My wife would probably consider no bedroom TV a deal breaker. In fact, part of our purchase package on our current MH was the installation of LG LED HD 32" in bedroom TV to match the 42" in living room...along with a DISH Traveler Sat, HDMI cable to front, and remote HDMI to bedroom. Yea, she likes her nighttime TV and generally something I do not like so if I am interested in TV I watch from DVD or batwing antenna in front. IMO, nice HD TVs are eye catchers to some when looking at MHs, not necessarily deal breakers, but somewhat of a attraction.

We never used the BR TV so we took it out, put doors on the cabinet, and use it for storage. We left the cables in there so if anyone in the future wants to use it for a TV they can just open the doors to watch it. Works for us!

Like other said, do what works for you. We keep ours mostly for flexibility. The smaller grandkids like to watch videos and we can set them up back there during the evening while we are up front.

Like others we pulled the old style tv that came with the m/h. DH made a door with gas shocks like the front entertainment center and bolted on a flatscreen tv/dvd combo. News or movies to fall asleep to plus extra storage for a few hundred dollars.

We just replaced both front and br tv's with LED. Made both area's into cabinets. But then while we do not watch a lot of tv shows we do watch dvd's more. We can start in the front and finish in the br or just catch the last few mins of news before turning it off so that Thom knows what the weather might be for going to work while on his bike.

We mostly watch TV in bed, or we send the grandkids back there when we are cooking to get them out of the way (I love my grandkids, I love my grandkids...). Anyway, we took out the old analog, bought a new flatscreen with a swing arm mount and installed a small shelf close to the ceiling. Now instead of a huge shelf that you hit your head on, the TV lays flat against the wall when not in use and the DVD player is up and out of the way. I think a lot of people would like the bedroom TV especially if they have kids.

What he said. It's just me and the dog, and she'd rather sleep than watch TV. I moved mine to the computer desk area in my S&B.

Wife will use it when doing laundry, that's it.


Make your coach your home. Worry about others only when you have to deal with them.
