I moved the TV from the cab-over area to over the table. I used an overhead flat screen mount.

I would love to take the credit for the workmanship but I'm really not that talented when it comes to wood. We had this all done by a company in Spokane, WA. Really happy with their work.

The seat belts were left from the original couch that was removed. Not that we have passengers in these but they work well to secure the chairs when going down the road.
Don't worry, the beer will be looked after. Waste Not, Want Not.

I've not had very much time to play with them yet as we're packing up our coach for a couple of months of storage while we fly back home to visit the family for Christmas. When we get back on the road in January I'll give them a good run through and report back.

For now, from my brief experience, they are much more comfortable to wear than you'd think from their appearance. The audio works great for blocking out external noise and my DW says she appreciates not having to hear what I am watching of playing (games) while she's reading. The video is the best part though. The HD display system puts you in front of a huge screen and it does a great job with both 2D and 3D video. I can also hook it up to my PS4 and play VR games in 3D with head-tracking.

So far, I'm impressed.

If nobody would buy a RV when the TV is uncomfortable to watch manufactures would stop building them that way.

Until then you have 4 choices:
1.) Buy a RV with the TV located in a comfortable viewing location.
2.) Move the TV to a location where you can comfortably watch it.
3.) Move the furniture in the RV to a location from which you can see the TV comfortably.
4.) Add a TV in a location where you can comfortably watch it.

Dennis45, do you know the brand of the recliners? We have been looking & very few available in the size needed.

TV placement in our coach was a very I important decision for me (wife, not so much) in our purchase of our first RV almost 2 years ago.

What we decided on:
"Primary" TV mounted opposite L sofa, plus overhead above driver / passenger seat. Overhead TV is used for "casual" viewing, as it is easy to glance at anywhere in the coach and the few times we watch while eating, one person can see it, the other the main TV. The only thing we have found is that one of the surround speakers is directly over the kitchen area, so it can be a bit annoying (to my wife)....

What I would also consider, and just spent quite a bit of time in recently camping with friends of ours, is the mid coach wall mounted, but not on the same side as the kitchen (see Tiffin 34PA, and the AP Busses). Great viewing from the drivers / passenger seat. Great lying down on the couch (yes, sitting on the couch, you are at 90 degrees which was a concern of mine as well, but you have the other seating options), and great sitting on the one side of the dinette. Other side of dinette sees the overhead front TV. OK, the fact we are hanging out in thier new 40AP was nice, but really, that viewing set up is very good. I had also been concerned about the distance from the drivers / passenger seats to the TV, but on the 40'er it is really a good distance. The bad, is that viewing from the chair next to the couch may not be particularly good, depending on which end of the couch it is on.

What I did not find suitable:
Mid coach wall mounted on the kitchen work area side of coach because it creates a viewing issue when someone is in the kitchen area.
Pop up behind dinette - originally liked this, but quickly changed our minds; can't really watch from the dinette, and no one can use the dinnette if you are watching TV even if the couch is properly set across from the TV.

And an outisde TV was a must have, and I use it whenever I can to watch sports. I have worked out the glare issues as well; zip on sunscreen on the awning and / or a 5'x6' black backdrop that I clip to the awning flap, and the underside of the flip up door is flat black......

Regards

Many of the TV view accesses in all price ranges of RV are border line stupid. Swivel mounts, pop ups, ceiling fold downs are all within the manufacturers ability.

I have a 40" on the divider wall and a 26" above the dash. I'm happy, I'll generally have both on with sound only thru the 40".

We have a 2 couch layout with 2 synced tv's (well they were/are supposed to be one of the things needing fixed.) The tv up front between driver and passenger seat works well if we lay down on the couches. The tv behind the smaller couch works if we want to sit together. The one up front also works for one person from the table.

I do not watch TV except for Basketball and Football games we have recorded. (I hate commercials!)

My DW sits on the J Lounge looking directly at the tv and watches regularly.

I sit in the navigator chair or on the sofa and read books.

Works for us.
