Brand new travel trailer owner and looking to purchase a TV and mount. We may rent the trailer and I wanted to know if there are any suggestions such a roku tv or using an Amazon firestick. Any suggestions or insights are appreciated.

As for Roku or a firestick they require wifi and most parks the wifi is poor or weak and won't support streaming. Many park rules say no streaming. We just use DVDs.

I've had great success with Morryde TV mounts. They're well built and come in all kinds of formats. The only issue I have is they never seem to come with all of the hardware that they should, but a quick phone call to their customer service takes care of that.

X2 Non commercial rentals are marginal at best. IMHO

Install a TV antenna and TV cable connection.

Let the renter get his own tv.

My employer doesn't like me to disconnected and sends a mobile hotspot with me when I travel. I use it for work and to stream to a smart tv. Works good.

x3 don't fall for the idea that it can make money and is available to you whenever you need it. Maintenance on a TT is non stop. each trip I have notes in my book of items that need attention. Sometimes as simple as just tighten or adjust. Renters do not care regardless of what you have in writing. Maybe post a thread asking others.." ever rent out your trailer" that would be amusing.
Personally, I would not loan or rent out my equipment even to people I know much less strangers.
