Front tv replacement

What creative ideas have you seen on replacing the older, set-in tv, to a new flat screen?

Buy a flip out at the bottom or side swing out mount and use the space behind the new flat screen for other components or storage.

I've done swing outs but what is the flip out at the bottom ? Got a link ?

For me in previous MH's I removed the old TV, installed a board that filled the opening and then installed the swing out mount. Has worked fine in the past.

My MH didn't have a TV in it when I bought it. The previous owner had taken it out but couldn't find a TV to fit in the opening. I bought a swing out wall mount and mounted it to the side of the cabinet. I hung an RCA 32" flat screen TV on the mount. It will push up tightly to the opening or I can swing it out and tilt it up or down. Works great.
The mount was rated for 70# but the TV weighed less than 9#.
If I pull the TV away from the opening I have room for DVD's and some other things like remotes etc. The TV I bought has a built in DVD player.
The TV stays put quite well when travelling but I do put a piece of foam pipe insulation on each side of the TV when travelling so it won't bump against the wooden cabinet.

Here's what I did in our Itasca. I pulled the old 75 pound monster out and put a piece of 3/4" plywood recessed about 4 inches inside the opening. I bought the largest flat screen that would fit in the opening and mounted it on one of the locking cantilever mounts from Camping World. This allows it to swing out for access to the back and could even allow you to build a hidden compartment behind the TV. I then covered the interior of the opening with black automotive type carpeting from Home Depot. It made for a secure, clean installation.
