Older coaches can rock the TV's too!

I installed a bracket on the outside of the coach. It uses the holes in the refrigerator cover so no penetrations. Had the outside bracket color matched and powder coated the same color as the coach. It's almost invisible when not installed.

Great job. I have to do the same thing when I get home this fall. In the same compartment. I'm gonna put in a 40" also.

I made some brackets for my wall mount bracket and hang them over one of my compartment doors. This is a 32" one, but I have a 40" that I may use instead.

All great ideas and executions!...Just on my 26" Visio (that's the biggest I could fit in the compartment) I ordered a swing out bracket on eBay for $15 and then went to the local metal shop and ordered two brackets same dimensions 24" long to achieve the most swing out I could get. Put an aluminum bracket on the backside of the fenderwell 1/4 inch thick - 10by2 for support where the wall mount installs. DW got a small black rug that covers both sides and we installed foam in front to protect the screen behind the black rug front portion. Bought a small safety strap to span the front of the TV for additional protection when traveling....Her and I had a great time engineering the whole thing. If I remember it was a 3 beer job for me..
