Thats not what I am suggesting at all.
I am saying that this mount is not capable of holding a TV in the flipped up position really at any time.
I have no problem with it holding the TV in the air when flipped down in viewing position I just would leave it like that all the time and not swing it up and expect it to stay there.
The tension adjustment on it is too crude to really work to keep it up and still be able to swing it down when needed.
It is just fine if adjusted for the down position and left that way though.
All of that of course depends on how well the mount is fastened to the shelf in the first place?
I have never taken a TV down for the road in 6 different trailers now and I have never felt like I should have.
Just too much work for little reason.
I also do not like the DVD built into the TV. When it dies then you have a deeper TV for no reason and will still have to find a way to connect an external player anyway.
Also the all in one units are typically the less nice units too.
