I got a heavy duty arm to mount ours on and after carefully measuring it fits right in the opening and looks like it is standing on the base. But I can pull it out and tilt it or rotate it for a better viewing angle. To be on the safe side I got 2 long pieces of velcro and screwed them into the wall behing the TV so I can wrap it around for travel.

tv mount

Camping World sells tv mounts that use velco and a buckle. I've used these for 10 years without any issues. And this is with the old tube type TV'S. (Much heavier)
Good Luck,

Almost exactly what I did a couple days ago although I removed the stand and will need to get some velcro or small bungies to secure it for travel.
On the front I rebuilt the cabinet and used a piano type hinge and piece of plywood. Still need to finish fitting the plywood box, glue the padding on and reapply the original vinyl, plus cut some of the old frame to fit.

I would like to find something that I could permanently attach it to the shelf but haven't found anything. There are a lot of wall mounts but nothing to mount a TV on a flat surface that I have been able to find.

Any suggestions?

We have a 2011 Cougar 327 res and we put a 19 inch lcd on that shelf I use the TV hold down mounts they are a self stick anchor with a strap that go's to another self stick anchor. One mounts to the TV and one to the shelf base. This has worked for us it keeps the TV upright and prevents it from moving.They have a latch so you can release them to reposition your TV for viewing.

If you want a permanent mount perhaps this will give you an idea. The attached pdf is the OEM flatscreen mount in my MH. It's made from a piece of .1 inch sheetmetal.

New TVs have the four mounting holes on the back which I think they call the VESA mount. The four holes in the sheetmetal attach there. The three holes on the bottom of the mount attach to the shelf. It's a pretty simple part to make if you can bend sheetmetal.
