TV Height

I have often wandered how old these 5er coach designers really are. For any company.
When I set in my BB Lazyboy recliner, Head back on the cushion. The bottom of the TV needs to be at least 48" off the floor. Now why do you think that would be a problem. Bifocals!
Most of these high end units are owned by older folks that ware Glasses.

That's the problem with most people buying. They don't check out all facets of staying in one. Another example is the Columbus 295RL. When I sit in the left side of the theater seats and look at the TV, the kitchen island faucet is right at the edge of the TV. If I had gone in and sat in the right side only then I would never know that. Did you sit in the chair with your bifocals on and look at the TV before purchase?

I find things in many RV's that makes me wonder if the designers ever actually spent anytime in an RV.

I will bet you that the majority of the designers have never been in an RV before let alone used one. All you have to do is go to an RV show and look at the different models. Last year DW and I went through a rear bedroom 5er, the dresser drawers would only open about 6" because the bed was in the way, you couldn't walk past the dresser and the bed, plus not enough room to put anything in the drawer. It should be a requirement that every designer has to live oin an RV for a year before they can design anything.

I guess it is time to get a pair of single vision glasses to watch tv. We prefer to have our TV lower.
