Installing flat panel tv in rear bedroom

I want to install a flat panel 39 inch tv in my rear bedroom. wanted to
mount it to the wall. problem is the wall will not support the tv and the installation department said they will not install it as there is not enough
support in the wall.

my question is has anyone installed a tv using a floor mount stand?
that is what the installation department recommended so the tv would
have strong enough support.

my question is I am trying to find a floor mount that I can screw to the
floor. I see a bunch of ceiling mounts on amazon. I would really not
mount it to the ceiling. I would prefer to mount it to the floor.
my question is can I use one of these ceiling mounts and turn it upside
down and secure it to the floor in my motorhome?

has anyone done this? I cannot seem to find a floor mounted tv stand
for the motorhome. does anyone know if they make a floor mounted
stand? the installer at Best Buy suggested I make a stand out of
steel pipe?

I am not real handy and would prefer to purchase a stand that is already made for my application. any suggestions or ideas on where I can purchase a stand that I can mount to the floor? thanks for any comments
and help.

Just some suggestions that might work, Do not know of any "off-the-shelf" floor mounts but I have a couple of suggestions, albeit you might need somone with handyman skills to pull this off.

If there room to mount plywood connecting to the MH wall struts, or make the plywood go from the floor or some horizontal support base, to the ceiling thus most of the weight would be transferred to the floor/base or the MH frame. Good secure connections are essential. Right angle brackets could also be used if there is an adjoining wall that could be used.

One would need to finish the plywood so it did not look out of place. You could then secure the TV to the plywood. A metal plate such as aluminium could also be used but it would need to be dressed up a bit also.

In essence there must be a way to anchor the plywood to the wall for this to work. Just a thought. Hope this helps but some handyman skills are required to do a good job on this.

Consider the "G" force that would be applied when the MH moves when engineering a solution, It will be much greater than the weight of the TV.

Good luck,

This may be more that you want to do but if you have room against a wall you can install a TV Lift. I removed the old TV Head banger in the front of my coach and built a small cabinet that is about 12" deep. The cabinet has a hinged top and when you push on the remote the TV raises up from in side the cabinet. Here is a thread link covering the TV lift. the finished results on mine start at post # 75. The head-banger is finally GONE! You would not need the little desk extension that I have and yours could be just a cabinet to hold the TV and lift. There are other pictures and details in earlier post on my project and those of others as well. The TV lift can be purchased at TV Lift from only $780 - Linear Actuators, Linear Motors, TV Lift, Electric Motors
