    I have a laptop that I bring loaded with some TV episodes and movies. It's great to fall asleep to and also great for some rainy days.

    We take one of those combo tv/dvd units with us... often we'll also have one of the laptops too.. we use them at night or on those rainy days..

    We carry a small flat screen TV. We watch the weather and if it's raining. Don't have any pics. It sits up against the window on the dinette table. And if the grandkids are around, we set up a projector, DVD player and a sheet for the screen, outside, for movie nite at the campground. Usually we have the neighbors and their kids pull up their chairs and watch with us. Met a lot of people this way.

    We both have English degrees. Books, eBooks, and if that isn't enough we read more books.

    We have a 26 inch flat screen and antenna. We like to watch the local news and weather and also like to watch the tv for awhile when we go to bed. We hook up to cable if we are at a campground that has it, if not then we can catch some over the air stations. Depending on where we are we can get up to 40 stations or 2 or 3 if we are in a more remote location. We enjoy camping and spend a great bit of time outdoors hiking, cooking and sitting aroundthe campfire, but still enjoy the creature comforts of home.

    In our remodel I installed a car radio DVD player for watching movies on a 16" LED TV. It also gets off air but we don't use it much for that.

    our previous owners left their tv with the pup. WOOT WOOT!

    I soooo don't want it hooked up but dh doesn't mind...so it's gonna be a battle...

    When we driveway camped we just set it atop of the stove while we sat @ the table (1 kid on the couch) then we ended up climbing into bed & moved it over ontop of the sink (put a cutting board on the sink so we'd have a shelf).

    Sorry I didn't take a pic...but maybe that'll give you an idea.

    Laptop or tablet. It does so much more than a TV in much less space and has batteries if needed.

    Ditto. But the laptops for checking work emails and the tv/dvd unit is strickly for movies. Good on rainy days or an occasional late night family movie if we're all wound up.

    Sure beats the 7" DVD player we used to take tent camping. That was a real treat since we could only get 1 movie out of the battery.

    We have one DVD player that feeds into two 19 inch tvs and a portable satellite dish. The TVs set on a bunkend shelves on each bunk.

    Hey Jimbow, just an FYI, there is a lot of programming in English on television. [LOL]

    With my engineering degree, most of the books have a plot that is a little boring.

    I'm just surprised nobody has disqualified you guys from camping. Everyone knows you can't have a TV and still be camping. [:D] [:D] [:D]

    Or on the other hand, why read books that take me a while to read when I can just watch the 2 hr movie. [LOL]

    In all seriousness, though, I have taken our small LCD TV on trips. But, we usually limit that to when we are going somewhere for an extended period or when we are using the PUP as an alternative to staying in a hotel. For example, last year when we went to D.C. and we'll be taking it this year to Disney.

    We've also brought our laptop computer and/or portable DVD player. The TV, DVD Player, or Computer is handy on a rainy day when we get tired of card games, board games, reading, etc. or when you just want to sit and veg after a day out sightseeing (e.g., D.C.) and the campground doesn't allow a campfire.

    We usually just put the TV on the table, counter, or on top of the clothes bins depending on where the interested parties are sitting or laying.

    sorry, no photo, but we bring a TV/DVD combo flat screen.
    Used basically for rainy days or soemtimes at night if bugs are too bad near the fire

    It's a nice change, as during teh day we are always out hiking/canoeing, so soemtimes at nigth we'll just hang in the pup after dinner
