I am away from home so I cant tell you for sure - but do you mean the mounting plate secured to the underside of the overhead bin? If so I can tell you it is not 6" its a bit smaller than that. It sits very flush to the overhead so when the TV is off you do not notice it. I use it for a 19" flat screen which I take down when traveling and put under the bed covers. I use push plugs for all the cables to the DVD player above so its easy & fast to disconnect.

TV mount

Carol H,
It looks to be just a taste under 6" long X 2" wide. If you need an exact measurement I'll be happy to check it again in the daylite. Or maybe call the manufacturer?
I don't take the TV down for traveling. It stays up all of the time. Not sure of the layout in your trailer, but it is adjustable vertically if need be.
In the Casita, it's mounted to the underside of a cabinet. The cabinet is very thin fiberglass. So, I made a plywood insert that goes inside the cabinet to spread the weight a bit.

I used this locking cantilever mount on my Escape 19 and mounted it to the bulkhead edge between the kitchen and the bed. It will actually swing both ways so you can see the TV while eating breakfast or in bed, and when you travel you can latch it in place up against the bulkhead

I dont think I would leave a TV up on the mount type I have while traveling - it doesnt lock up - if the TV needs to stay up then I would look at some of the heavier duty type holders. It is really easy to take down though - just one small clip to release it..

Thanks, Matt - I went ahead and ordered Carol Hi's solution... I had wanted to not take down the tv, but everything else about the mount seems right...

I did play with the placement on the "kitchen" wall but even with the 16" tv, I can't seem to tuck it neatly into the corner... part of it peeks out out from behind the wall and on this tv, all the cable and sound hookups are on the side that shows...

So, it just won't work for me there.

LK - don't bother measuring.... I finally figured out that I'll just make it work whatever size it is... if it's fitting others, it'll fit mine... but thanks for the offer...
