Mounting TV

How do you tell what the skeleton if the interior is of a 1985 Bounder. I am going to replace the TVs with updated digital ones. I want to either wall mount or put in a flip down unit that is a little bigger than the original. I will need to know where there is reinforcement for the weight. Is a home stud finder viable? Is there standard spacing of studs? Is there a substantial skeleton for the ceiling if I want to put in a flip down? I'm a newbie and just learning.

Of the people, by the people, for the people!

Here's a link to a few threads on how to find them. I can usually see mine ( and many other MH's. ) on a morning when the dew is on the MH. They prominently show.

I mounted my wall mount with two bolts clear throu the outside of the wall. Used stainless steel bolts. Helps delamination and having to hunt for a two by two that is dry as a match stick...

A stud finder will probably work for the ceiling. Tapping on the walls with your knuckles should do the job. You can also often look in the existing cabinets and see where the screws are placed.
