Mini Projector Or TV for the campervan?

I will not prefer a TV or any monitor in the camper van. Because in the camper van space and power is limited.

And the TV or any monitor both take space and consume power more than any mini or pico projector.

For the camper van, my first choice will be a mini or pico projector because it’s space and power-friendly.

Should I use a portable projector in the daylight?

Not, recommended from my side, because it will be stupidity. Because the mini projector has not the lumens to project a clear image on the screen or smooth surface.

You should always use the mini projector in less light condition or without any light. And I always prefer to use the mini projector inside during the daylight.

Conclusion.

So, these are the top selected projectors and projector screens. Which makes your camper van life memorable for you. Wish you a very good campervan life.
