13 Inch Flat Screen: How To Mount On Swing Platform

Hello, I just bought a 13.3 inch flat screen TV/DVD player today (Craigslist - $75!). My Class B is a 1990 so the swing platform was not meant for a flat screen. Does anyone have any ideas how I secure the TV to the platform? I would hate to drill a hole through the base (bottom) of the TV. Worst case, I could just lay the TV on the bed while in transit.
Here is a picture to give you an idea of what I am talking about. Thanks for any input.

They have wall mounts on a swivel that you can mount to wall.
Remove the shelf type and install the wall mount.
The LCD has holes for four screws and you can turn it in any direction in your class B.
Most swivel mounts will have a locking nob for when traveling.

The platform look to attach to the original mount with a pin.

ONe idea is to buy a flat mount for the TV----put it on a piece of plywood---then off the back of the plywood have a pin the goes into the space provided on your original mount.

The TV then would be mounted lower, would swivel and you would be using the original mount in the wall so not drilling extra holes in the walls etc. It also would not interfer with the cabinet above.

This description is very rough but if you are interested I can try to explain batter.

I would NOT use the stand mount, as it will not be secure enough. You may hit some hard bump, and it must stay in place and not break off.

I agree with 007. Get rid of the mount you have and get a wall mount. Install the wall mount directly to a wall stud(s) or a larger piece of plywood that you attach to at least 2 wall studs. Then install wall mount and attach your tv using the four screws in back. I would suggest making a velcro strap with snap buckles to secure it while in motion.
