Maximum TV size over Cab

We want to put a larger TV on the swing out arm over the cab sleeping area in our 2010 Winnebago Access 31C. Have not found info on what size is optimum for that space. Just know the little 19" that is there now is far too small. Plan to move it back to bedroom after we get the larger one for up front.

BTW, tried looking for this on older posts, but if it was there I missed it.

I do have a 32" TOSHIBA at home, mounted on a solid wall bracket in my office-computer room; you do need a solid structure to mount the bracket on !

tv

I had the bunk replaced with the 42" entertainment center. If you don't have need for the bunk maybe you can do that aftermarket, just saying.

Why not fabricate two hook/hangers that bolt to the back of the LED TV and hook over the sideboard of the overhead bunk? Take it down when traveling.
No holes in your RV. Safer, with less chance of accidentally pulling off a wall.

I hang a 32" LED TV up front on a center hole cover I made to cover the opening where there was a 13" analog TV. I made my own hanger that hooks over the board cover. I easily lift the TV down and store it on the couch (tied in place) or on the queen bed in the rear of our class A. All connections for the TV go back up into the overhead right cabinet.
By the way, 32" was the biggest size I could put up there and still have access to everything up front. Consider your viewing distance and your need for access up front if you do go the route I suggested.

Also worth pointing out that the swing arm may not be anchored well enough to support a lot larger TV. You will need to keep that in mind. Have you tried calling Winnebago and asking them?

What does that have to do with how well the arm is anchored in the wall?

I assume there is some kind of reinforced anchor point. The point is that if the mount is engineered for a 19 inch LCD going much larger may exceed the strength of the mount point of the swing arm.

I put a 50" in the cab over area. Don't need another bed. Mounted it to the floor of the sleeper area.
