Like many of us we have a TV that can be viewed when sitting inside our RV,The original place that the MFG placed mine was on a shelf in the upper bunk area.[image][image]It was always a pain there because if you wanted to use that area to store something on when parked you had to move the TV

Next to it on the wall above the small captain seat was a pretty useless cabinet,tall and thin,only 5 inches deep.This would be a perfect place to put the TV I thought...I cut a hole in the side of the cabinet to run the antenna and power cables thru,and this is what I have now,out of the way and hidden until I want to use it.

Some of you might think that the open door might be a head banger I will tell you this the door opens above the small chair and I an 6'6" tall and I clear the open door with ease,no head banging for me,that was the first thing I checked before I made this mod.[emoticon]

Nice job, looks factory installed. I've made use of cabinet space as well to mount a TV and/or TV bracket. We don't spend a whole lotta time watching the boob tube but I do follow a couple of sport teams and DW has a couple of shows she doesn't like to miss.

I did the opposite. We have an older Class B that originally had a CRT style TV. A past owner removed that and mounted a flat screen over where the old TV was hidden. We decided we need the storage space more than a TV so I removed the flat screen and boxed in the area where the old CRT TV had been hidden and added a cabinet door. When we occasionally want to watch TV it is movies or TV programs we have recorded and have stored on a thumb drive or internal drive and watch them on our laptop. We are an Apple family and may try using Airplay to simulcast to an iPad so we can sit where we want and watch together in the seat we like best.

We had an '01 24' Itasca with a cabinet like that but deeper and with a door that rolled to the top inside that healed a TV. the cabinet was deeper because back then TV's still used a picture tube.
We slept in the bed above the cab. So I made a nice ladder that leaned against that open cabinet. I made it out of 1/2x 1-1/2" Oak. It had a notch on the back side that hooked onto the cabinet so it could not slide down, and the top step/handle was as wide/long as the cabinet so it could not slide sideways.
