Television mount

Being a new fiberglass owner I'm not sure the best way to mount a television either under or to a cabinet wall. What have others done and does one have to add support behind wall where the tv stand is mounted? I'm trying to determine if the drop down vs pull out type of cantilever is best. Any suggestions and ideas where to buy? Thanks

Funny I went through the same decision making 2 months ago. If you have a cabinet wall to go up against then that would be great but I would put something in behind it to give it more support. I did not have a cabinet wall big enough for mine to go up against and I did not want to mount it to the outside of the trailer as that would mean drilling holes through the fiberglass so I got one that goes under my back cabinet - heres what I got and where from: PDR Under-Cabinet Mount with Quick Bayonet Release for TVs up to 20 Inches UCMM50

Works well for me as I leave it attached to the TV and just take it down and lay the TV on the bed while traveling. The only thing visable when it is down is the metal plate that is attached to the underside of the cabinet that it all attaches to.

I really like Carol's mount because you can pull the television easily. But if you're looking for something that folds away, or if you need any generic HDMI cables connectors or switches, check out http://www.Monoprice.com .

This folding undercabinet mount could find some uses in an RV, I'd imagine: 20lb weight limit

For only $8.25 each when QTY 50+ purchased - LCD Cabinet Mount Bracket - Black | Ceiling / Under Cabinet Mounts for Flat Panel Displays

Here is mine mounted to the cabinet on my CT, I did use the universal brackets (I didn't need them for my 22" TV) that came with the mount to reinforce and spread the load on the inside of the cabinet wall. This mount was $18 from Sams Club online and is a great bargain, you can also buy additional wall mounts and it can be quick detached and slid on the additional mounts.

Actually the neat thing about the one I used is that it does also fold up under with the TV attached providing your TV is not bigger than the cabinet you are folding it up under (which in my case it is).

Carol, do you have any pictures of how you have it with your TV mounted? I have a 13' and a 19" TV. There is a reading light under both ends of my cabinet, but one could easily be removed. Is there enough room to turn the TV? Any info would be appreciated.
Thanks,
Alice

Ingenius Floyd. I like the wood interior. Makes it much easier for doing updates too. I'm not that creative though. Hope to find something like Carol's mount, and see how people have their TV's mounted in a little 13'. It's like buying a new home, lots of little things to do.

IMHO: Carol has one of the slickest RV/TV mounts I've ever seen....

Yes Doug it certainly is. I hope she will post some pictures. I'm looking for ideas as to WHERE and HOW to put the TV in my little 13'.

My wife would KILL me if I even suggested putting a TV in the Scamp. Maybe if we were fulltiming...

I take my iPad with me, though. As long as there is a decent cellular signal, I can stream Netflix movies or watch any of the movies I have saved on the iPad. I can also surf the web, check my email, play games, etc. In fact, most of the time that I am posting on here, it is from my iPad. Maybe she'll let me put an iPad mount in the Scamp... I doubt it, though.

Heres a couple of photos. One with a 19" TV mounted and the other with the TV off the mount. I have been using it and it is real simple to take down and put back up. I put a push on adapter onto the cable connection at the back of the TV so I don't need to screw it on and off - just a simple push or pull to disconnect. I used an HDMI cable thats also push on and pull to disconnect - like it as it means only one connection wire needed to the DVD which is in the overhead bin. Those along with the power cable which is also push and pull all go neatly back up and out of the way in the overhead bin when the TV is not mounted.

I mounted it as far back in the corned as I could but It still has about 4-5" to swing either way.

Thanks Doug. You will be pleased to know that not only does it look good it now actually works! Managed to watch a number of chick flicks at the last rainy all women fiberglass camp out. It wasn't the outside cable that you suspected it was one of the internal connections that runs to the outside cable box I put in. I had made the cable from scratch and had not put the connection ends on correctly so remade them and alls good!
