Got the 19" TV Mounted and closet sorted out

Recent additions

Mounted the TV - found the holder here: PDR Under-Cabinet Mount with Quick Bayonet Release for TVs up to 20 Inches UCMM50

The mount just clips off from the overhead bin to take down - don't have to remove the TV from the holder. Just put it down on the bed while traveling. When the TV is down you don't see a big empty holder just a small plate attached to the underside of the upper cab and I stuff the wires back into the cab. I installed round hole covers that you use in office desks to tidy up the holes I drilled for the cables and wires.

Also after 3 years of wanting I finally got around to cutting a hole into the bottom half of the closest and put in a door and shelves. No more big messy pit. Used the wire racks so I can move them up or down as needed. Used bolts and nuts to attach the rails that hold the shelves to the sides and put caps over them so they look like they were always there. Glad I made the shelves movable as I have already changed my mind a couple of times as to best placement for the items I want to store on them. It was easy to do and would do it again in a flash - the hardest part for me was cutting the wire shelves to length as I did not have the right tool to cut them with at the start.

Thanks to the Oregon meet as that is where I got the door and hardware to match and the courage to cut the hole!

It looks good Carol. I would like to remove the furnace in mine but I'm not sure how to cap off the propane. Want to come over and give me ideas?

I thought you were working at the rally on the week-end to find us a handyman to share! LOL Better you bring it to the North Shore as I have a big driveway to work on it. Better still if you come to the meet at Langley this week end we can pre plan the attach over a drink. :-)

Believe me...I was looking at the rally but all the good cabinet makers were already taken. What day are you going to Langley and do you know if there is still room there?

Nice setup on the tv, I used a wall mount with a similar quick release.

This is the one I used for my 22"
Sam's Club-Level Mount Full Motion Mount for 10" - 30" TVs

Thanks. I looked at one like yours as the prices were right but decided it was worth paying a bit more if it meant not drilling another hole through the trailer to the outside and creating one more possible place to leak in the future.

I hear you loud and clear, I haven't put any extra holes in mine yet and don't want to start, fortunatley I chose a spot on the inside cabinet so no holes to the outside. I like the shelves, I need someting like that under my sink, I have a ton of wasted space under there.

Thats the downside to the Scamp in that there really is not many places to put a tv bigger than 12" other than at the back of the trailer and on the back corner and attach to the outside wall or under the cabinet.

The shelves were actually easy to do - don't know why I waited so long to do it - go for it.

Great idea for the closet. TV no. Finding campgrounds to bootleg internet is as far as we go.

Hear you Cyndi - a TV was the last thing I wanted a few years ago. But this one came to me cheap and its to small for the house so I decided that watching chick flicks on a big screen in the trailer on a rainy night was better than watching on the laptop.

Hey Carol, nice TV mount. I was wonder what you use for a TV source, and how easy it is to use.
