Just build a support frame out of a 2x4. Mount it in the original TV box. if you want pictures I have them documented here on the forum. I can dig out the links.

Good luck,
Hey Max! Sure, I'd love to see some photos. Care to share the links?

Here you go-

This is the rear TV update- Got rid of the original "19.

Here is the second front TV update to a 32" (from a 26" LCD that fit nicely into the original opening). I've abandoned the bayonet system I've shown here.

Here is an update of a Sony 32" I just put in a '00 HR, Endeavor. This shows what I'm doing now to secure the TV for travel.

I did one more update into an older coach and I can't find those pics now. It was a into a side cabinet, 30 degree off set from the front, right behind the co-pilot seat. The install was similiar to the others I've just outlined.

Ref to the HR Endeavor update.
The picture on my 32' Sony LCD is so outstanding, I recommended this unit to my friends and they took my advice. It costs a little more than others but I think it's well worth it.
They are tickled to death with their new 32" TV.
Bo moved the smaller, new Vizio into the bedroom and mounted it in a similiar manner.

Good luck,

Clark, I'm away from home, and coach, for another week, will post pictures ; If I can , not very good with computor stuff; next Tues. night. The mount I used, would more accurately be discribed as , shiftable , side to side, as a security bar has to be removed to get the tv over the 8", full move to the left puts the right lower corner of the tv even with the existing cabenet. My PVR, is now in the space behind the tv ; it overheated in the left side shelf; and I have to lower the tv if I have to access the PVR. There was a slide mount available but it was 5x's the cost.
