Hi Sarge and others,
Thanks for your descriptions and experiences. With the advent of digital TV, I guess I'll be in the market for a change and I really like the improvement in HDTV. My preferences may not be realistic nor matched by my hardware and cabinetry skills
but they are, in order:
1. An LCD wide screen TV larger than the present one mounted in front of the current CRT TV position hinged upward to the ceiling with the old TV cabinet converted to a storage compartment. When not in use the TV would be folded up against/near the ceiling.
2. As above, but with a TV the same width/size as the cabinet.
3. An LCD HDTV mounted in the cabinet, more or less like Sarge's.
4. Install an adapter for digital and use the current equipment.
Everyone's thoughts, critique, suggestions, etc. solicited. Is option 1 insane and undoable?
Rig is 2006 Winnebago Journey 32T with center front overhead cabinet mounted CRT TV.

Yes it is the stationary mount from Home Depot. They had another one that articulated, but I didn't need that feature. As for accessing the back it would just require dropping the bottom plastic shroud that is attached to the facia. About 6 -7 screws on the bottom of the shroud, and 2 screws inside each side cabinet. Oh, and take off the screws that hold on the visor under the shroud, if you have one. It would take about 3 minutes. Then because of the slim line design of the LCD TV, there is tons of room to reach in and switch or add cables. I used a hand mirror to verify the accuracy of my connections after I mounted the TV. Pretty simple stuff.
