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 go off-grid, a 12V TV is the solution.

What is the best TV to buy for a motorhome?

We’ve picked out what we believe to be the best motorhome TVs on the market. We’ve chosen models that all have 12V capabilities and are 19-inch to 32-inch TVs, giving you flexibility when you’re on tour, regardless of whether you’re going off-grid or not.
