Thanks for the tip Carol.I will do that.The mount came yesterday.Looks like exactly what I want and the quality is really good.The trailer is in storage for the winter so this won't get installed until Spring.Pat.

Another good idea. I hope to find it waiting for me when I get home from work tonight. Last night the television got unpacked and is laying on the bed. Am thinking of usinging a bungee to hold it down on the bed while travelling. Things tend to bounce off the bed. otherwise. Thanks again.

I made a pouch for mine out of 1/2" foam and some extra nylon material I had - I just slip the tv and mount into it when not in use and stick it under the bed covers when traveling - so far so good.

I used an old soft sided suitcase and placed my TV in it with some egg crate foam wrapped around it, it's a perfect fit for my 22" and very secure for travel, just an idea if you have an old suitcase laying around.

Sounds like a perfect solution. A suitcase can ususally be found at a garage sale!!!

We could not find a spot to mount our TV where we could watch from both the dinette and the bed. So, I came up with this system:

I found a wire shelf that would hold a 22" TV and a satellite receiver. Hung it using cup hangers (15lb load per hook), light chain and "s" hooks. There are two "s" hooks on each chain - Long for dinette, short for foot of bed.

When we are using the dinette the TV hangs over the middle of the bed and we both can watch.

When we are in bed the TV hangs over the foot of the bed.

We used this system almost every day for two months and it worked very well. It takes less than two minutes to change the position of the TV/shelf or to put it up or take it down. One person can do it alone although two make it much easier.

When traveling the shelf and TV ride on the bed. We wrap the TV in a towel and place it so it will not bounce off.

Total cost - less than $10. Found shelf in a thrift store.

We looked at the various store-bought mounts but decided the wall adjoining the closet wasn't a good placement for our lifestyle and didn't want to put holes through any exterior walls. My husband built a small two shelf unit that fits in the front of our Boler over the gaucho next to the kitchen counter. (More or less dead space unless one plans to sleep on the sofa.) In order to have access to the gaucho storage bin had to sacrifice some of the sofa cushion (unzipped it and used electric knife to cut; stored at home should we ever opt to replace it). The unit fits very tightly and has space for a small microwave on the lower shelf and an LCD TV on the top. An angle iron was attached to the lower shelf to keep the microwave from moving during transit. Made a padded cover for the TV which lies flat secured by bungee cords during travel. Aside from paint and time, it was free as we had short boards on hand.
