Best TV Size for Caravan
When choosing the best television for your caravan one important aspect that you need to consider is the size. As is the case with most things you invest in for your caravan, you’ll need to sacrifice a little and compromise on the size. Afterall, you want something that’s not too big, but also not too small or you won’t be able to enjoy your favourite shows.
Therefore, it would be best to aim to get one that is between 20 and 24-inches (though as you’ll see from this page, there’s many great ones available even smaller) and weighs between 1.6 and 4.5kg.
Best 19-inch TV For Caravan – Cello 12V 19” Traveller Satellite LED TV
If you’re after something that’s a bit smaller than a 20 or 22-inch TV but can’t bear to go for something as small as a 16”, you might find this Cello 12V 19” satellite LED TV to be more to your liking. Featuring full HD, a DVD player, along with a terrestrial and satellite tuner – this is a great little box of fun.
At 3kg, it’s a little heavier than some of the others on the market, but the trade-off on the weight means that you benefit from a screen with an aspect ratio of 16:9 and display resolution of up to 720p.
What’s more, this Cello TV, in addition to the DVD player and TV tuners that come integrated into its design, there’s also an HDMI port and USB 2:0 port. That means when you’ve had enough of standard TV and exhausted your mobile DVD collection, there’s still the option of watching DVDs, playing video games on your favourite games console or using a device to access your streaming services through your TV.
All in all, for a relatively small television, this Cello 19” model has a whole lot to offer you in terms of providing you entertainment on those rainy days and when the sun goes down at night.
12v Freeview Box
As already noted, it’s best to invest in a caravan television that already has Freeview and other options installed into it. You can see that there’s plenty of options out there. If, though, you really want to buy a 12v Freeview box separate to the television you already have, for whatever reason, you will struggle to find any. We were only actually able to find one…
