TV Bracket on a Autosleepers Nuevo EK

Post by Eltel on Wed Jan 11, 2017 11:30 pm

I am about to purchase a 2016 Nuevo EK

I note the positioning of A/E and Satellite feed sockets

Are you a fit the tv on a wall bracket or does it have to be free standing.

This was my first question on the forum too. A couple of drop down brackets were suggested but in the end we prefer to keep the tv in the wardrobe and only get it out on special occasions, which last year was one DTM race and one GP and a lot more books got read.

I'm not at my computer now but I will look for my post later if I remember.

Either side of the microwave installation that sits above the fridge freezer, we have 12v tv/sat points. The Avtex tv is mounted on the wall bracket adjacent to the habitation door. We can also adjust the extension arm of the bracket so the tv faces the fixed bed. However this is a bit irksome and part of the screen is hidden by the cabinet. Decided to get a 9" e, star portable LCD tv and another wall bracket to fix facing the bed. Like the first tv set up, need to secure to cabinet same size block of 'wood' with four 25mm screws then fix the bracket with two 40mm screws. Somewhat OTT so may discount block as may proove difficult to match wood effect finish and the tv only weighs about 1kg.

The nuevo comes with a super light weight bracket which we had fitted on the right hand side of the micro wave.  All conections are  there and viewing from seats and double bed is easy.

I can't get the search engine to go back far enough to find my original post but you are getting help without me. I will leave you in safe hands. content

Ours didn't come with a tv bracket (don't know if it should have done or not), and we've previously never had a tv in the van. We did however fancy watching odd decent sporting event (Tour de France, 6 nations etc), or tv series (NOT Eastenders, X factor etc  censored ) and so I just bought a Freeview USB tuner stick off fleabay and just plug into the laptop. Seems to work pretty good so far.....although still haven't really watched tv!

Where did you get your TV Star set from?

Many thanks.

Apologies Peter, just discovered your post. From Amazon, E-star 9" Portable HD TV LCD with free view DIT2 at £119.99 including carriage. Great picture quality and sound via normal tv arial. Fitting it in van next week expecting same quality of signal. Made alteration to wall bracket as tv has a camera tripod screw fixture. Regards

Hi I made a wooden bracket that fitted on the shelf above the drivers seat, wired in a plug and extended the Ariel cable the bracket is removable so you can use it as and when.

Hi Peter, did you enquire further with regard to the E star portable tv? Ours is now 'up and running'. Excellent picture quality, a neat little device enjoyed with a nice cuppa first thing. Regards.

Hello Paramedic 

Just had a look on web. Haven't pursued matter of TV yet as waiting to get the new van before we decide. We currently do not use a TV in our present van and we haven't decide whether we want one in the new one.

Peter

Thanks Peter for your quick reply. In our case, the 9 inch screen suits the short viewing distance at the end of the bed. Of course the larger Avtex is necessary for facing the lounge. Regards.
