Hi Everyone,

I have a neck problem, which prevents me from keeping my head turned for any length of time, such as for watching TV. This means I need to look straight ahead when I watch TV. For this reason, I'm looking for a used DP MH with the living room TV on the side and a couch/recliner across from it. The only ones I have found are the Winnebago FD, AD and TD models (Vectra or Tour, and the Itasca Ellipse and Horizon versions). I can't get one with the TV over the cab or the newer mid-ship TV models. I'm looking at something a few years old, maybe 2004-2009. Can anyone recommend any other models that I might look at? Thanks.

On our Endeavor, when the slide outs are extended there is a mirror on the one wall. Where I sit at the table I can see the front TV in the mirror. Everything is backwards but for me that is not an issue.
I do not remember what the model up in the last week I did see a set up like you are asking about. We have been looking at newer Mh in hopes of purchasing one.
Good luck on your quest!

Another thought is to have one of the sofas removed and a cabinet with the TV installed in its place. I dislike the 90 degree viewing angles too and will buy a rv with or create a better viewing area.

In my Discovery, I removed one of the couches (curb side) and repalced it with a swivel euro chair and ottoman. No more neck turning and I can face either of the two tv's in the living area.

I really like our Adventurer TV location like what you are looking for. Some of the newer rigs are getting better at putting the TV in a place more natural for viewing.

Keep us posted on what you find.

We looked at some front kitchen models a few years ago and they all had the tv mid-ships with the lounge across from the tv. A 2006 Holiday Ambassador was one that I recall,

Many newer coaches have an additional tv somewhere midships as well. Was quite popular starting around 2006 or so in larger rigs (40 ft).

TV placement

Try looking at Rexhall motorhomes. They have TV/Stereo cabinets placed so they are easy to view when sitting on the couch. You may be able to find a used one to fit your needs. If you want a new Rexhall, they only sell direct from the factory which is in Victorville, CA

Winnebago/Itasca have newer models with better placement of the TV as well.

Good luck!
