Default Wanna see something ridiculous? Dynamax Rev 24TL

Check out this B+ rig. Has what they are calling a "tailgaiting package" which consists of a ridiculously large exterior TV and a custom paint scheme. I think this holds the record for the largest TV in a B/B+ or C motorhome.

Otherwise a fairly nice RV at a low price. Like the interior, and like the paint job.

A model I like better is the 24RB. It has a much smaller exterior TV (which may be something that could be deleted), but also a side dinnette with nice captain's chairs and a drop-down queen bed. It could use the paint job option from the TL.

If you are in the market for a Trend/Viva, I'd look at these too.

I was surprised at how much a lot of RV-ers value their TVs. A few years back, when I went camping, the neighbors by me actually set up an inflatable projector and sound system just to watch their reality shows. Thankfully they went all inside and were asleep by the time I got back.

Maybe I'm just old... television just isn't on my list of things to do when out. I don't mind having a LED screen that can double as a monitor for a laptop (so I can use a "real" keyboard and mouse), but seeing rigs come from the factory with 6-8 TVs? No thanks.

Likely there is a market for a tailgating machine. I suppose this would be quite nice as a party bus to college football games, painted in your team's colors. 65" tv would definitely make you king of the parking lot!

In my case, painted bright orange with purple accents would be quite the spectacle if you decided to take it camping!

The REV's might be fairly nice class C's, but they have a rubber roof. Too much maintenance and leak possibilities....

A outside of the overtly large TV, the lack of a GPS would be annoying. I think a display that just shows you Compass settings does not cut it

Good catch. I had assumed it had Tom-Tom like all the rest. Cost cutting I suppose.

Too bad they all don't just get the Nav off you phone. It would work better and you wouldn't have to concern yourselves with updates. Some of the new cars do this like Honda Fit.

Doesn't navigating off of your phone require you to have an internet connection for maps?

It requires a cellular connection to the Internet for Google Maps and several others and I found this year that is probably a 95-99% probability now. However, you can also load TomTom, CoPiilot and a few others on your phone that have preloaded maps just like their standalone units. The GPS chipset in the phones do the rest with those.

I have Apple's CarPlay but haven't explored that aspect yet to put my iPhone on my dash Pioneer unit's 7" screen.

Davydd,
Please keep us informed once you get a chance to explore CarPlay. A properly-done integration among phone-based apps, fixed head-unit displays and steering-wheel controls would be a huge step forward, especially when it comes to mapping/navigation. I doubt that Apple is there yet (even their base mapping technology is still a work in progress), but if anybody ever pulls it off, it is likely to be them.

There was a thread about these and weight over at rv.net. CCC got very low once you filled gas, water and propane.
