New TV location - ideas?

I'm getting way too many ideas from being on this forum! I'm creating a honey-do list for my husband!

I'd like to have a different TV in our Georgie Boy pursuit other than the one above the drivers seat/passenger seat. Not that we hit our heads on it, I would just like to have a larger flat screen somewhere. Since it's not in our way I'm not concerned with removing it as I've seen in alot of the posts when I searched this forum. We can leave it there but I'd like to add one somewhere else.

Has anyone added one to another location? I saw the one where it raises up behind the couch. Won't work for us as we have 4-5 people that need to view it.

Behind the passenger seat we have space. Currently there is a recliner but it's not bolted down. I'm not sure what was previously there but when we bought it there was just a recliner. I thought about using that space for some type of cabinet and TV. There is a window there so it can't be anything high. Then wiring is an issue...

So any successful additions of TVs?

Not knowing your floor plan, it is difficult to say for sure. I have always liked the location Travel Supreme came up wit, which was in the center of the coach or back wall of kitchen and living room area.

You can put a TV any place you have room for it, which is 1% of the problem. The other 99% is the antenna/cable/DVR/SAT cable wiring and the power wiring. This could be relatively easy or very difficult depending on it's placement.

I removed the crt tv from the upper front cabinet and had an oak door made to close the opening. It's a flat door that I had intended to mount our new flat screen on but after thinking about it we decided on a new location. Like you we have a spot behind the passenger seat and put a free standing three tierd shelf and put the tv on it. For us it's a much more comfortable viewing angle. I still have the option to mount the tv on the door that we had made if we should want in the future but for now it's staying right where it is. JMHO. Good luck with your decision.

I guess I should have included pics of the interior for help. I will attempt here but they are appearing too small I think.

The type of TV isn't really the concern. It's the location. A neckbreaker to watch and can't see from the front chairs.

I also realized after looking at other Pursuit pictures it seems that mine used to have 2 chairs under the window behind the co pilot seat with a table between. This would have been nice to have with the amount of people we sometimes travel with. I think the previous owner had some type of wheelchair he had to make room for and took out all but 1 chair.

I'm still considering using that space for a TV cabinet but have to weigh the pros/cons of adding another chair there and table instead.

I searched quite awhile last night in this forum for other ideas. I didn't come up with much but think someone was referring to hanging a flat screen in the eating area when the slide is out. When the slide is in the TV is hidden. I'm going to ask my husband about the space in that area to see if that would work. Anyone else do this? Currently we have a picture there and an outlet.
