Articulating TV mount

I am not even sure that I spelled that correct.. I changed out the old Tv a few years ago. Now we want to see the Tv from both couch seats. I want to pull it out and over above the passenger seat. Anybody with experience on the mounts that will hold up with all the moving and bouncing.
Thanks, Don

I recently put a mount in my Class A that is holding up fine. I use 4 industrial Velcro squares to hold the TV flush on the wall and keep it in place when bouncing down the road. I have noticed that a lot of MH builders are using magnets to hold the TV flush when it is rolling down the road and that would be an excellent option I should think.
The mount I used is a Omni Mount OS60FM if you were curious.

There are two videos on this page which show a wide variety of TV mounts suitable for RV use. There are articulating mounts shown in both Part 1 and Part 2....

Here is a link to the same type I have used in past.
It saves using unsightly Velcro straps and inventing other hold-down apparatuses.

Locking Cantilever Mount - McNaughton 94139 - TV Accessories - Camping World

These will hold a 32" TV up to 25ibs. There are several others available in different lines. I would recommend a beefier one for full articulation.

Thanks for the ideas.. Now all I have to do is decide to do it.

MOR/ryde Home has some quality mounts to choose from. You can also find them on Amazon.

I used one of these Amazon.com: VideoSecu LED LCD TV Wall Mount for most 22"-47" LCD, LED & Plasma Televisions and some models up to 55" inches - up to 88 lb VESA 400x400 mm with Full Motion Swivel Articulating Arm, 20 in Extension and Post-installation Leveling System, to mount a 32" Samsung in the bedroom of my 5er. It is very strong. It extends 20", but the real selling point for me was how shallow it is when it is folded in.

Don, call me crazy (you won't be the first) but I used the belt and suspenders approach with my articulating mount. First, I tore out the old tube TV over the driver seat and did some woodworking to build a foundation. I used the MorRyde locking articulating mount which is very good quality IMHO. Even with a locking mount, a 32" TV will still bounce some so I added support arms that easily lock in when we are driving.

Nice job, Glenn. You have some wood working ability. I would have to do that with Bungee and bailing wire. Might not look as good?
We have decided not to do the project.. Were thinking how to move the TV over, and ad a reclining loveseat, for better watching angle. We decided we would rather buy gas and travel than buy a loveseat.
Thanks for all the ideas.
