How do I choose the best TV for my motorhome?

The size of the TV you go for will be crucial – opting for a smaller set will provide a better viewing experience as you’ll be closer to the screen.

Another important factor will be how you can store it – a small set is easier to stow away. Some ‘vans come with a mounting bracket, in which case you can measure to check your planned TV will fit the standard VESA mounting on the back.

Otherwise, think about how you’ll transport it without making it bounce around. Covering the screen with blankets and ensuring it can’t fall over will help it reach the campsite safely – you can find out more about watching TV in your motorhome in our guide to television on tour.

When it actually comes to choosing the right model, it’s worth considering the type of tour you’re likely to take. If you’re visiting sites with hook-up, you can use a typical domestic set. However, if you want to take your motorhome off-grid, a 12V TV is the solution.

This is a model that is ideal for fans of Freesat too, as it comes with a built-in HD Freesat Satellite decoder, along with a DVB-T and DVB-T2 digital tuner. Its edge-to-edge display will allow you to make the most of its 1080p Full HD picture too. Another feature we like is that you can wirelessly cast photos, films and more from both Apple and Android phones.

The Bluetooth-compatible motorhome TV also presents the option of connecting speakers or, if you want to enjoy your favourite programmes without disturbing the rest of the ‘van, wireless headphones.

Thanks to Aquos Net+, you can easily access the internet and streaming platforms such as Netflix and BBC iPlayer at the click of a button as well.

As well as that, you can access Freeview Play; Freesat can also be watched, so long as you have a satellite dish, thanks to the CS22WS01’s built-in satellite tuner.

Its Bluetooth connectivity is another useful feature, giving the flexibility to connect it to wireless speakers for a better experience. Something worth noting – while this model can be wall-mounted, we would like to have seen it come with a bracket.
