Counter pop up television

Working on maximizing all wasted space, so decided to use the space that is curb near the belly belt in having a hidden counter pop up television in my trillium.

To me it looks like you might not have enough room behind the tv for all the cables when plugged in. I would do a test run with everything plugged in before finishing the cabinet. That way if you have to alter anything it will be easier.

What a great idea! I always thought that would be cool to have at home, never thought of the trailer. Hope it works, keep us posted.

Counter pop up television

Thanks, all connections are underneath and not on back , but will have to secure connections because after 4 times up and down they disconnect.

I recently went the other direction and removed our TV. We just weren’t watching it. And the stuff I like to watch I can watch on my laptop.

You could do it with a rope and pulley instead of a motor

Watching the video it looks like the television is being subjected to a whole bunch of vibration when you raise it up and lower it down.

tv

3 years ago we spent 6 weeks tenting in Europe we never missed a tv and since we always have tented we didn't miss or need it then.

Seems like we can get too attached to gadgets but if you must have tv then go for it. My neighbor must always take his sat. tv and even for 1 night must go through all the stuff to get it going!

You can find a quiet, smooth action lift, with motor by going to Ebay and searching with the keywords (12v linear actuator TV lift)

The same lift system is also used on modern, motor powered, adjustable beds so some of those 12v linear actuators are also found on Ebay. There is one on the adjustable bed I got from Ikea. Works great for making an adjustable bed in an RV for comfy TV watching, relaxing, reading, etc.

I just might use a car window frame and motor to cut the treaded rod vibration and noise. Will be looking in car scrap yards.

You might have to use a fulcrum type system if the throw of the window motor isn't long enough.
Princess auto also carries linear actuators.
