Tv ceiling mount

Want to mount a Ceiling Mount and have TV swing down in front of Bedroom window. Any suggestions and how does it stay up when not in use.

Goooooood luck......

amazon and other tech site list lots of TV's that mount from above, but I've never seen one that "swings"

I have seen some that "swing", but they are generally small, like in bunks... small DVD player type tv's

To top it off, I'm not sure I would be confident in finding anything solid enough in the ceiling of an rv to attach it to.... unless you positively hit the ribs....

Let me ask you this... whats BELOW the window? cause removing cabinetry and installing new cabinetry with a TV LIFT is much more doable and available.

Some of the high end coaches do that. They are mounted to the roof and electrically powered to swing up or down. Ours doesn't have it but some of the CC's, Monaco's and others did. Not simple or cheap to do if you want it powered. By hand it just takes a piece of plywood drilled to match the TV mounts and a piano hinge and a strap to hold it up.

We have a 2015 ITASCA Sunstar that has a manual swing down ceiling mount. Best position for watching TV in bed that I have seen. If you can find some brochure or video on line, you may be able to see the mount.

Ceiling TV Mount

Question, whats between the ceiling and the roof? How much space? would you have to drill holes through roof?
Sounds like a great idea to me for living area as we have the ole TV over the dash and really only one good, uncomfortable (The Booth) seat to see it. Love the ones that pop up out of the wall, but not that lucky.

I'm looking at that mount now...

A little cheaper:
Ematic Black Folding TV Ceiling Mount for TVs 23" to 42" - Walmart.com

There appears to be two style latches out there with the same model number, one is a latch you push to release, one is simply a screw with a nut (which is stupid).

I removed a monster tube type from front cabinet. rebuilt cabinets and add a mor/ryde TV40010H flush mounted under new cabinet. Price was under $150 at that time I gave me clear head room as I never learned to duck. The bracket is 25 lbs and my 47" smart TV is another 40 lbs. so you do need to beef up, as needed.

The middle cabinet hides about 7 inches of hardware. The TV is out about 18" from my windshield when deployed that number can be adjusted.My tv screen is very soft and flimsy, so I sometimes take the tv down and store upright in wardrobe closet for real long trips like 1300 miles from FL to MI.

I think smaller TVs are better built. I would check the floppiness the of tv screen pre- purchase in horizontal orientation, but we have about 10 K+ miles on this tv with no problems.
I do get teased about needing a larger TV from friends when in the RV. This tv is shared with our S&B cause I was too cheap to buy a dedicated for the RV, maybe someday If RV doesn't get replaced.

Good Luck
