Television replacement

Has anyone out there replaced the 27 " viewsonic tv in the living area with a larger/better tv? We had warranty service to replace ours due to sound problems. Keystone replaced it with a 26" with less features. I'm done with that. Any suggestions as to what will fit?

Our new 2008 Montana came with a 32" Olevia and we really like the picture, better than our old Sony WEGA in the house. I have heard some mention the anniversary edition has a 32" Sylvania. I believe others have replaced their 27" with a 32", maybe do a search.

We installed a 32-inch hdtv lcd awhile back. It is larger than the opening, width wise. We consdidered trimming the trim to make the opening larger but have found we don't mind it the way it is. I did put additional trim at the top and bottom because the new TV is shorter than the opening. For on the road, I used web straps with plastic connectors and screwed the ends into the floor and ceiling of the opening. They work great. So far, after 500 miles of towing the tv has not budged. The straps keep it tight against the trim surrounding the opening. There has been no chafing. If you prefer a finished look such as the tv fitting in the hole then you either have to expand the opening or go with a smaller TV.

Just curious why Keystone went with a different model replacement? Did viewsonic discontinue the 27?

Recently A MOC member posted this web site which gives the sizes of tvs. Just click on the brand and choose the model. I would give the MOC member credit if I could remember who it was. JB

Well that link is not very reliable - it doesn't even list anything under 32"

Here is the 27 Viewsonic used in the Montana and it is still available -
Viewsonic N2751W

I think I might raise a little heck with Kestone as to why you were downgraded LCarter!

Our 3400 anniversary edition has a 32" Sylvania. I thought it would be the Olivia as we had seen at some RV shows this year.
