It's not really up to you to understand why others choose to have a tv in
their RV, it's up to you to be tolerant of what others enjoy while in their RV.
No one here has said it is "mind boggling" that you choose to RV in a small
class B RV, because we realize that is what YOU want and it is not up to us
to say your choices for RVing are wrong.
Not all of us want to "get away from it all", many, like me, want to "take it
all with me".
I love my TV, A/C, queen bed, refer with ice maker, forced air furnace,
convection oven, and all the rest of the things that make life easy.
Besides, how much nature is there to see after dark.

Couple thoughts. Volume is key unless folks next door are already part of the Viewing. If not, an easy solution is a pair of wireless headphones. Senheiser makes a good, affordable pair and more than one can share the frequency. Same is true for the radio.

On the other, I have a projector that we have brought to camp to share a rated G movie with other families after a day of fun, showing it on a 12 foot screen under the awning. Would I do it in camp without all the neighbors wanting to enjoy? No.


Happy camping.

I arrived well after you guys left and had the pleasure of dealing with my friendly hosts the Khmer Rouge to the west. The three GE MG's mounted on the port side brought everything to life after dark.

And back stateside, there is still some nature to see when the sun goes down.

A lot from what we read from people taking Fido for a stroll in the campground, when people forget to lower their shades

So we are camped for the weekend. The new 46" tv is mounted in the forward bay.

We are in an end spot, door/awning/tv facing the woods. Watched a movie (wild hogs) while I grilled burgers and brats. Then we ate while we finished the movie.

No neibors to bother.

You are absolutely correct. What somebody chooses to do in his RV has no impact on me and is none of my business. When he moves his noise outside, it does impact me.

BTW, I place outside speakers in the same category try. More often than not, your taste in music does not coincide with mine.

As for nature after dark, it depends on where you live. I my wooded yard (northern Illinois) we have two species of owls, bats, coyotes, flying squirrels (if the owls haven't eaten them yet), red fox, and skunk.

We've all had our issues with loud, obnoxious campers (like 2am driving golf carts around hooting and hollering) but for the most part, campers I have met have been polite and conscientious neighbors, even those who have outside kitchens with tv's.

Personally, I keep my tv for night time and rain periods but I don't mind those who prefer a tv outside.

I've often looked up under the kitchen slide and thought: Is it possible to put a swing down TV up under there?
Stowed, it would be flat under the slide, there is maybe a 3 or 4" gap there that the tv could slide into. Perhaps one if the new super thin LED types could be made to fit?
