Do a search on "TV Conversions", or similar wording. There have been several good posts, with pictures and easy explanations. It's not hard, I've even done it myself, with little or no cabinet modifications. If you are "handy" with tools, you shouldn't have any problems. Good luck.

Here is how I mounted ours in our 2003 Monaco Dynasty. I have attached to a link over on that other site for your viewing.

Depending on how you want the end result to look, there are dozens of ways to mount a new tv. I wanted my tv to have a built in look. The first thing I did was to find a tv that would fit within the frame of the old TV. For me it turned out to be a Vizio 32" Razor. I simply mounted the tv to the frame the used to surround the old tv. I glued a couple of strips of black foam weather strip along the edges of the frame where the tv would be mounted to, to absorb some vibration. I held the TV in place with a couple of pieces of wood 3/4 square about 2 feet long screwed in to the side on the frame. See pictures below. The whole project took about 2 hours to do. The TV came from Costco, the hardware from Lowes.

Our old 75 lb. "boat anchors" were known as "flat screen TV's". Believe one should be looking for LCD, LED or plasma TV's.
