TV replacement cabinet

I have searched and searched but can't find ideas (suggestions) for my latest project.
DH has removed the big old heavy TV from the front side cupboard on our 2003 Minnie. We have the entertainment center in the cab-over, not a bed.

Now what are ideas to
1. modify the inside of the cupboard?

2. Attach a new flat screen TV?

3. Add cupboard door(s)? I would assume we could get a good match from a diy store. The opening is 23.5 inches with the inside being much larger.

4. We did purchase an articulating tV arm; where/how might it be mounted? We don't have to use it tho.

5. Now that we have access to the cabover, should we consider adding insulation to the whole space behind the entire cabover space? Is so, what type?

We are not big tv watchers, but occasionally it would be nice.
Any and all suggestions, ideas, wish-I-had, photos are welcome. TIA

Looking forward to replies, Mike. I, too, have '05 tv in overcab space and would like to have ideas for remodel. Good luck in your pursuit. Will follow this post to see what happens.

Go to a local kitchen fabricator with one of your other cupboard doors and the exact measurements, they can make you up a matching door out of solid wood. You now have a very solid place to mount your new TV. Be sure to get a heavier than required latch and support struts to handle the weight of door and TV.

Murf2u is right. I've seen that type of mod.. In effect the TV becomes your cabinet door.

The attached shows how I placed my flat screen on the full slide. I have a 2007 Monaco Esquire, class C.

We had a door made to cover the hole that hinged at the top and then mounted a flat screen TV to the door. Used heavy hinges and gas struts to help hold the door open for access to storage behind the TV.

Hey Mike, I also have a Winnebago 05 29b and was surprised that behind cabinets were not insulated. Just finished putting up insulation and lightweight carpeting. It is much warmer up there now.
Also installed a 32" led tv with articulating arm. Mounted 3/4" plywood to side of entertainment center piece.
Getting ready to just make some sliding curtains to cover door area where old tv was.

Not sure if you still have rv but thought I would like to know what you did or anybody else.

Walt

Walt, yes we still have our 29B 2003 Minnie. Drove her 7,000 miles last summer.

As for the TV, we took out the big old one. Wow! There was a lot of space back there! We insulated and covered it with paneling. We carpeted the floor.

For the door: we went to Habitat For Humanity and found a door that matched the rest of the entertainment center. We mounted the door so it flipped up.
We mounted the TV right on the door. We had to drill a hole in the door to run the cords inside to plug in. We glued (3M sticky strips) a power strip on the side wall inside the cupboard.

We take the TV off for travel. It stores right inside the HUGE storage area behind the door.

I (wife) wanted to use the articulating arm, but dh wanted the stationary TV mount. It hasn't been a problem.

I hope this helps.
Mike and Leslie
