My preference, although I am open to ideas, is a 12v smart TV. I boondock a bit and would like to be able to use the TV off the house batteries. I know an inverter is an option, but it is just one more thing to mess with. I also would like a smart TV so I can stream stuff. 99% of what my family watches is Netflix, Amazon Prime etc. My work provides me with a cell and unlimited data, so I can use it. I would prefer not to have to add a Roku. I would like it built in. My home TV has all the apps built in or I can cast it from my phone. What are yall using?
Try this:

Good luck.

I picked up (2) 32" Vizio Smart TV's at Costco for $164.00 each. Hoping to install them next weekend. I am installing each of them opposite each other in the center console. One is in the living area and the other side is the bedroom.

will do my friend. I am planning on mounting the living area one first and drill straight through since the bedroom wall is wide open that way I know the living room one is positioned accuratly as the bedroom area one is less important on the placement as it will be centered automatically. I am getting bolts and nuts to again sandwich them on the wall that devides the two areas. The brackets themelves will provide much needed support as well by sandwiching the wall itself.

I think that is the same TV I ended up with. So far it has worked great. Mounted well, nice and light and small enough power consumption that I have run it off my house batteries with an inverter with no issues.
