Since we all pretty much agree that the exterior entertainment package that Winnie offers on the 2006 Vectra/Horizon (as well as Tours/Ellipses etc.) is pretty much worthless, has anyone put and LCD in one of the bins and if so, do you have pictures of how you did it? I am looking at putting in a system similar to the one in the 40KD rear bedroom. I would assume you wouldn't have the entertaiment center already so if you place it in the same bin OR on the very rear storemore bin on the slide. What are the max height and depth you have to work with? Are the exterior coax connections and power readily accessible?

Thanks in Advance

Sorry Pal,

No disrespect intended!! I wish I would have known you prior to your order. I would have warned you how much bin space this thing took up. I shouldn't say it's worthless, just space challenged!!

I knew ahead of time it was a space "eater",but never knew until John C saw the '06 Vectra,then seeing mine today,just how much...

Maybe I'll end up with that tv in the garage after all....

The biggest problem I saw was the viewing angle or should I say lack there of. You'll have to watch TV directly in front of it to see it properly. Seems like they could have done a better job with this. For what it's worth, the DVD/Radio is pretty cool so that much is still useable. There is also that small compartment next to the TV to fit some stuff. Can you measure how much bin height you have and how much depth?. I'd like to build a slide out similar to the one in your bedroom and get an LCD I can actually fit on an articulating arm. I've seen it done on other coaches before, just not the likes of ours.

Thanks!!!
