Mounting a GPS

How have you mounted a gps in your F53
class A? Bean bag mount slides around, clamps don't seem feasible.

I use a suction cup mount on the side window, far enough forward that it doesn't interfere with the sliding window.

Self adhesive hook and loop AKA Velcro. I mount all sorts of things with it. My current preferred brand is Strenco.

Got tired of suction cups letting go and adhesives on dash. We have this one in three vehicles including our MH and it molds to the contour of the dash and has a non skid surface that hold it in place very well.

The bean bag didnít work for me. I put Velcro adhesive strips on the mount and on the dash. She stays put now!

Good luck

Mine had one of these or similar on the dash when I bought it. I was able to peel it off and move it to a better location and it still seems to be holding pretty good. The suction mount for my Garmin sticks to it and stays put.
