mounting tv

Hi
Picking up a 2005 Scamp this weekend. So excited. Is it possible to mount a flat screen to the bathroom door? Live in Oregon , can't wait for the adventures to start. My two dogs are ready.
Michele

To out of the way. Not many places to mount.

The outside or inside of the bathroom?

I looked at some of the past Scamp* bathroom door postings and it looks like they use a piano hinge and fairly thick wood, so it should be able to support an LCD TV. Probably a good idea to use stainless hardware on the inside if you have a shower inside.

I'm guessing you want to be able to swing out the door/TV to face the bed or dinette?

If you have some space elsewhere you might consider rather than a flat or semi-articulated mount on the door, instead get a cantilever mounting that will go on a bulkhead if you have space. I used this one mounted to the bulkhead in my Escape-19 because it can swing out to face either direction and you can lock the LCD down for travel or remove it entirely fairly quickly.

You pull the chain and open the hinge to fold it out, and you can lock it back with the mount folded back into the main hinge.
Regards,

Matt

Thanks Matt.
After I pick it up I will survey other spots. It would be on the outside side of bathroom door. My first rv, so this forum will help lots.

Would put a lot of additional pressure on the door hinges. I'd look elsewhere.

Sorry, It just seems to me that the "hallway" in front of the bathroom is narrow as it is without a TV and it's mounting bracket. I'm sure there is another thread in this forum that has photos of what others have done with their TVs.
Enjoy your new rig!!

!
If the OP was to use the search function on this forum (use the bottom Google Option) they will find a lot.

A pretty good one with lots of photos is called Television Mount.

Dont know what size Scamp the OP has but I agree I dont think I would consider the bathroom door. Mine and most others I have seen in Scamps both 16' and 13' are more commonly found mounted at the rear corner to the overhead bin.

We mounted our flatscreen in our Scamp under the rear overhead cabinet, at the left end using a modified ceiling mount. BUT we always took it down and placed in on the bed when travelling.
