viewing TV in 2551
« on: April 09, 2010, 02:58:07 pm »
Hi, potential new owner here.  Have a question regarding viewing the TV from the sofa in the slide out on the 2551.  From the pics it appears that it would be difficult to comfortably watch.
Unfortunately health prevents me from getting to factory for several months and I can't find any coaches in my area to look at.  Also, is the air bed fairly comfortable?
Appreciate any input.

I don't have a slideout so I cannot comment on that, But I did want to mention you can request a smaller TV be mounted on the wall behind the barrel chair.  That places it at a much more friendly viewing angle, and closer to the couch as well.

If getting a slide, I think the slide with the fridge and couch together is "tops".

I have the couch on the slide, on a 2700, the viewing angle is neither good nor bad for the space available.  Changing position to prevent a "crik" in the neck becomes second nature quickly.  I bought my unit used so had no choices, but we make it work.  There are probably better options.  Can't comment on an onboard air bed, but the one we have at home is pain in the patoot and according to the wife is going to be replaced.
Get well soon.
