We mounted our Mor Ride arm on the inside(side) of the cabinet and use the cabinet for storage. The TV fits tight against the front. We put a bungee cord across the front for extra security when on the road but would not have to use it.

Single vs Dual

I originally used a single arm mount but the TV bounced around a great deal while traveling. I replaced it with a dial arm rated for 150 pounds and it is much more secure.

I strap it to the supports when we travel.

Hinged panel gives more storage.

I took a different approach with plywood, piano hinge and
suitcase latches. This gives me maximum storage behind
the TV and seems secure after a bit more than 200 miles. I
did have to use angles to secure the 24" CRT TV frame to
the steel structure, and I secured a 1" high length of oak
below the plywood so the hinge & latches don't bear the
weight while in motion. I got a flat wall mount from monoprice.com and used longer screws for the lower pads to hold it against the angled frame. I still have to veneer and then finish
the 9 ply (cabinet grade) plywood. These photos were
taken before I installed suitcase latches, so the black strap
above the TV is a temporary holder. I also used rubber
equipment feet on the latch edge to get the same spacing
as the piano hinge.

My first time including photos, so hope it works...

I used a Swing Arm Articulating & Adjustable wall Mount model # 66301 purchased on line at Walmart for $29 bucks. I remove it when driving and lay it on the bed. The mount is attached to the TV and it slides into the piece attached to the front overhead cabinet. This mount is good for up to 37" tv's with a max weight of 40lbs. Installed Dec 2010 and my Vizio LED 32" works just fine.
