In Flight video

What are folks using for in flight video for the rear seat passenger. How is it mounted? We have an EB 50 floor plan w/a pop top. We didn't get the van w/ any video options, but now that we have a 3-1/2 year old copilot, we find that movies are the way to travel. Holding the laptop on mom or dad's lap gets old. I'd love to get a roof mounted style, but don't know how to go about this. (the only thought I had was to use a crosspiece -woood, probably- across the rails on which the upper bed sits, and mount a flip down to that. Probably have to wire it up w/ a cigarrette lighter plug and just plug into the outlet thatson the passenger side, above the couch)

Any other ideas? Working solutions?

Thanks
John

I had perhaps the most inelegant solution ever when taking my niece across the country. I used a portable DVD player and just put it on the counter next to the sink so she could see it from the 50 couch. Just from the rubber feet it seemed like it would stay, so I added an elastic loop string from the faucet to the fridge hinge- loose so there wasn't any pressure. I dropped one of the elastic loop halves on each side of the screen (one in back and one across the base) just to keep it from flying off the counter on a bump or turn.

So on to useful information... RAM makes great solid mounts. I use one for my GPS but it would be a good place to look for something for a DVD player off the wall or from a ceiling cross piece. You could even suction cup to the counter if you don't want to go the hillbilly bungie route.
