Outside TV

Hello, I have a 2005 Class C Four Winds Chateau and it has an outside "entertainment area" with a cable hookup and I was wondering what I need to do to mount a TV on the side of the RV for when I am camping. I have been to Fort Wilderness and seen many campers watching the TV attached to the side of the RV and I was wondering if they did this themselves or do newer RV's already have this feature. I didn't know if I could just mount a TV support on the side and attach the TV when I get to the campsite. Is this what people normally do? And if I do this, will the support bar stay flush to the side of my RV when I am driving down the road? Any advice will help, thanks in advance

Many RVs come with the TV built into the entertainment bay. You mention a cable connection, is there also a 120 v outlet? Not many Class C's have big enough outside storage for a mounted TV. If you have a flip up storage door, you could mount a TV mount on the backside and hang inside TV on the outside bracket for viewing.

...Or just set inside TV on a folding table.

As noted, Many RV's already have 'em factory installed.

Mine did not.. But if you have the connections (Mine DID not, does now) you can mount it most anyway.

In my case I have 3 Flat Screens, one is a "portable" the other two are mounted. I can simply take the portable outside and set it up.. Either in the bay, or near the bay Just take it in at night.

I like the idea of mounting a TV on the backside of a storage door. That's a good idea.

Did you just put the mounting arm on the side of the RV? If so, does it swing out or anything as you are driving down the road?

There is quit a lot of manufacturers that have tv's mounted inside the exterior walls not in bays. I would image you could make some,kind of hanger to hold a tv.
