Yes, but most campgrounds have a weak or very busy WiFi network. We’ve been lucky most the time, but it seems when we want it the most we have trouble connecting.

You can certainly change out the TVs to anything you want. They're just normal 120 volt TVs and almost any brand you choose will be an upgrade over what the factory puts in there.

I'm not sure what you're looking to do with your couch, on our 36.1 Palazzo we hated our couch but after looking at our options we ended up just having the cushions re-done with much stiffer foam. When someone was sitting there while driving they always felt they were sitting on the metal frame beneath the cushions.

I wish now we would have had the dinette cushions done as well.

Replaced the main and outside tv's on my gasser with 32 in. Amazon fire smart tv's. Greatly improved reception, audio, and picture. Whatever brand you choose, do your homework on VESA mounting pattern of the old and new TV. Might have to buy extra Vesa adapters and nuts, bolts, screws. Good luck!

yep, a tv is just a tv, unless your Bedroom tv is the Jensen 12v type, but even then, you may have an outlet behind it to plug any 'regular' tv into if you replace it. My Palazzo has the Jensen, I suppose to allow the owner to be 'off-grid', without the inverter, and still be able to watch 'ota' TV, because the antenna is also 12v, but mostly we just watch it like any of the other 120v 'regular' tvs, and don't really know the difference.

I'll say that, yes, wifi or cellular connection to the net is going to be the prohibiting factor to 'smart' TVs, of any size or variety...but if you have that worked out, then they'll work just like anywhere.
You'll find subjects on cell and wifi sources all over this forum, as the internet continues to be one of the most challenging things when it comes to being 'mobile' in your RV, and most campgrounds and rv parks don't really want everyone 'streaming' movies every night, at least on their dime.

now, as for the couch, you'll have to share with us 'what' couch type you have.

We didn't change the TV we changed the DVD player to a Sony WiFi player and use our smart phone hot spot for streaming. The Sony has connects for Netflix, Amazon and a bunch of others. Cost about $100 and took about 20 minutes. Works anyplace we can get a cell signal. We're on Tmobile but would work with any carrier with unlimited data. Do they throttle, probably, but hasn't been an issue yet.
