Just collected my new Broadway EB and can not wait to try it out. My existing tv 21.5 inch doesn’t fit inside the tv storage cupboard. As the local caravan shops are closed I will have to get one from mail order, what’s the largest size that fits so it is easily swung out?

I don't have a Broadway but I took a different approach to you and looked for the smallest 12v TV that would do the job and came up with a 16 inch screen which we find fine for the confined space of a motorhome.  It uses less power than a bigger screen and is lighter and smaller which allows it to stay permanently on its bracket ready for use without getting in the way.  The only downside are its speakers which are a bit tiny but we get used to that.

Avtex TV`s do a range of sises,Sorry do not know your van, The sound is brilliant, not tinny like some cheaper models.

Have 18"  the frame  size is smaller than some but not compromised on screen size, depends on size of van, find this size is right for my van, as it sits on top of the cocktail cabinet, no room on the side to put a bracket as I did have in previous vans, don`t watch a lot of telly, but if you are an addicted viewer then perhaps a small size wouldn`t be enough.

I've also taken a different aproach with my Winchcombe (TV cupboard looks the same). I've attached it to the table stand and just put the whole lot in the cupboard, having made a retaining strap from 1" web webbing and a quick release buckle. Then I just lift it out when on site.

My current TV is an older Avtex 18.5" with a thick bezel, but a modern 19.5" set should go in without a problem, and the right 21.5" set might also go.
