Monoprice.com has good prices on TV wall mounts and morryde.com has RV related mounts, including bay and ceiling slide out units.

I used the locking cantilever mount from Camping World. It allows you to pull the TV out for better viewing and access to the back. It works great and securely locks the TV back in place. You just have to put a couple of padded blocks at the bottom of the TV to give it something to rest against.

I have used mounts with articulating arms for both basement and cockpit applications.

They were purchased from Monoprice and are good quality.

I use Velcro to hold the TV in the travel position. Has worked for a couple of years on 26" TVs.

I bought a Mor/Ryde that extends and swivels. If yo go to TVForMyRV.com they have videos of the various mounts. I put the installation of mine in the Newmar owners forum.

TV Brackets

Temory,

Check out this modification I did to my 2014 Fleetwood Excursion 35C. I didn't want to loose space underneath my basement storage compartment so I had the bracket setup on the exterior of my coach. I had a screw out base plate installed in order to run my cables, cords etc behind the doors. I store my 40" flat screen in one of my other storage bays while traveling and mount it when I'm set up. Let me know if you have any questions.

I bought my last mount at Sam's where I had bought the TV. Make sure you have a secondary method to secure the TV and limit the amount of bouncing it will do.

The first TV I mounted the back of the TV started to fail, I noticed that the TV was sitting lower then when I first installed in and couldn't see the problem until I took the TV off the mount. I had to reinforce the back of the TV to mount it back.

The second TV I mounted didn't have any structure in the back where the mounting holes were, I was concerned about the mount failing so added reinforcement before installation and also secure the TV tightly in the frame so it cannot bounce.

I am doing a change over right now on my 2000 Journey. I am using a 32" tv, 28.7 " wide. Have to trim a little of the trim work, but that's not a problem. I had to remove the front part of the metal "tub" that the anchor (old tv) sat in and then a found a wall mount that was slightly wider than the tub structure, could force it in for a snug fit trial fit everything and then attach permanently. I will post pictures of what I have done for your review.

Our setup is the same as Lt Dan, but we have a larger flat screen. In fact it will not fit into the space behind it. No problem, it sets flat against the front of the cabinet, instead of inside it.

For traveling I took a cargo strap and attached the ends to the bracket behind the TV and use it to secure the TV in place when we are on the road.

We have that setup both front and back.

If you have a very thin LED tv, you can mount it on a sheet of plywood and use a piano hinge to secure the plywood so that you can access the space behind the tv.

Okay, here are some pics of my installation so far.

First pic is the cut out on the stock frame for the huge boat anchor (TV)

Second is the mount in place on the sides of the original support

Third is flat screen hanging on the mount

Fourth is finished product before I build the sliding drawer under TV for movies, remotes or other things that I can forget I put in there. Finished product should look pretty good.

Here is the final product, I left the shelf under the TV so I didn't have to cut the plastic under cover, and it gives me room to put trays for DVDs or other things. Real happy with the final look and probably will get better mileage without that 100 pound boat anchor up there posing as a TV.
