I don't put Roku in, but I do buy application-capable TVs. In 4G areas, I've got more than enough bandwidth to stream from my phone to the TV.

In some campgrounds with decent internet, we can do Netflix / Amazon, albeit not at HD, but it's good enough....

Other movies are captured on a 1TB USB hard drive that plugs into the TV... More than enough storage for lots of hours of kids videos.

If you'll be sitting close to the TV and it's up high, you'll need a tilting mount. Otherwise the image quality will be really bad.

Did mine last year and I didn't find getting the old TV out to be as much a problem as cabinet modifications to support a flat screen. The front TV I ended up cutting the cabinet back and making a flat panel to cover the opening. Took a few tries with various stains to match what was there.
The rear TV I didn't want to loose the cabinet space so just made a door to cover the opening and used a piano hinge with a locking latch and mounted the TV/DVD player to the door. I can swing it open gain access to the cables and store movies behind the TV.
Only problem i've encountered is if the kids want to watch a movie in the back while traveling the TV isn't loud enough to overcome the diesel engine. So plan to use the aux speaker outlets and mount two speakers on each end table on each side of the bed.
