Hi All! My wife and I are brand new Retro owners and so far, we are loving it! One thing we didn’t think about when we chose our 177SE is where to sit to watch TV. We haven’t bought a set yet because we can’t figure this out. You can’t sit up in the bed because of the overhead cabinets being too low and neither one of us likes to watch lying down. It doesn’t seem like you would be able to see the TV from anywhere else inside the camper even if you have a swivel mount. If you wanted to sit at the dinette, only the person on the door side would be able to see it since the bathroom is in the way of the other side. I’m sure someone has figured this out and maybe I’m missing something obvious. How have others handled this? Thanks in advance!

Amazon sells an extended bracket that will reach around, depending on how big of a TV you want. Also, I read where someone just places it on the bed to watch it then puts it up on the TV counter when not, and travels face down on the bed. Do Not Trust The Factory Mounting Plate! Elsewhere in the forums I posted my fix. Over 10k miles without a mishap. Good luck.
