2003 Georgie Boy Exterior Walls?

I have a 2003 Georgie Boy Cruise Master and want to change out the old rear TV that sits in a large box in the bedroom with a new 19" LCD TV and would like to attach the new TV to the Side Wall and continue to have the old TV Box in it's place (without the TV) to use as additional storage.

The new TV only weighs about 10# but I can't find out what the wall is made of and how I might attach it to the Wall without having it fall off.

I've aready replace the TV in the Front Room by attaching a 32" Led TV into the bathroom wall that is that is next to our Dinning area and it works well. It has been inplace for several trips over the past 2 years.

In anycase if someone can tell me what the exterior walls are made of and if you think they will hold the weight or how I might find out this information I would appreciate it.

I would expect your sidewall construction to be the same, the Landau and the Cruise Master were almost identical. The sidewalls are aluminum framed, 1-1/2 inch square tubing. That should certainly support the tv-- IF you can screw into the metal. I have not seen a framing layout so I can't help with location or spacing.
Don't think the foam fill will hold anything...


Hope this helps

Hooligan, Thanks for the quick reply I have not seen the view that you show. I intend to mount the TV above the window in the sidewall of the Bedroom. The window is ~43" wide and is of the 4 glass crank out type. Do you think that the window would have been mounted to the aluminum frames? If so I could run a piece
of 3/4' finished plywood from one side of the window to the other and then put the
TV onto the Plywood in the center above the window. The TV is a little over 20"
wide so there would be some of the finished Plywood showing but I think I can make that attractive for my spouse.

That view is a cross section of the overall wall construction.
You may be able to find the aluminum studs with a stud-finder. I just tried with my cheap studfinder, it shows something floor to ceiling about 48" on center with that 4 panel window centered between. But the return is weak. Would need more investigation to be sure this would support your Tv. Don't know who would still have drawings for Georgie Boy..

Good luck..

That sounds good will use my stud finder (it has a metal setting) and see if I get something with it. I think I should beable to drill a small hole in a place that will
not be visable if it turns out to be nothing.
Thanks for the info and help. I'll let you know what I find
