Pitch with electric hookup and a hookup lead with an RCD built in.

Avoid cables that have a standard household strip extension, they are not suitable and could kill someone.

Or a battery powered TV, dont forget a decent antenna also.

If its a mains TV beware condensation and damp mornings.

Post 1997 licence holder?

Max tow weight = Cars gross laden weight + Caravans gross laden weight.

These 2 figures must not exceed 3500kg. And the Caravans gross laden weight must not exceed the cars UNLADEN weight.

Unless the manufacturer has set a lower limit.

Add a USB TV dongle to your laptop, car or solar charge the laptop during the day. The dongle comes with a small aerial but best to upgrade.

Enjoy the liveliness of the syntax.

Tough one that. Our tentís too big to go up in our living room, and our tvís too big to fit in a tent that could.

But I can see that it might save on heating bills in the winter.

Battery or hookup with lead and RCD
Small low wattage tv
pole and antenna
cable

Also :
A tripod is useful and a monitor stand is way better than the legs supplied with the TV.

Modern camping tv are very low wattage and can run off a decent leisure battery for ever, they also have a 240v input so you can use hookup.

We use satellite, which would be perfect for U.K. use, although we only go camping in the South of France, so have to use a 1m Dish.

For U.K. use a 35cm Dish is more than adequate, although rather than a Dish, a small Flat Panel satellite antenna will do the job, plenty on eBay at not silly money.

As for the receiver I would go for the Sab Titan Micro, an almost pocket sized unit, than can also work as a PVR, the Titan Micro although not officially a Freesat receiver will pick up all the Freesat channels and more besides.

As for TV we use a Cello 15Ē LED had that for years but itís a good un, with HDMI input.

Sounds are taken care of by a pair of Aldi RF wireless headphones, I canabalised the base stations, and put all the gubbins into a plastic box, the size of a match box.

We now have a spare head phone transmitter as the one transmitter will work for as many headphones as you wish, and the actual modified transmitter is a fraction of the size of the original unit.

We just use alkaline batteries in the headphones instead of the supplied two AAA rechargeableís.
