What to put a flat screen up with in our 2003 Fleetwood Jamboree GT 28 ft

Here are pics of the current TV.

Over this chair, which I want to replace at some time as well.

We want to mount to where the TV is mounted now. We will take the swivel out if needed. We do not want to mount to an outside wall. We want it to slide out, so it can easily be seen from the dining room area.

Any links of products that will work? Please dumb down any answers, I am not good at this stuff!

I'd make sure the front side of the TV cabinet is strong enough, you might have to beef it up with a piece of plywood on the inside, then through bolt one of these on the cabinet side.
Swing arm

That would allow a flat screen to be viewed from the bed but also swing out to be viewed from the chair or dinette. A bungy cord or strap could hold it against the wall when traveling.

Thanks. We don't use the cabover bed. I took the mattress out.

So you are thinking use the side wall of the cabinet to the right of the current tv?

Mounts are available for almost any Flat Screens mounting situation.

Like Bob wrote...you could mount to the cabinet wall if it is strong enough.

Or like your original idea...use an articulated tabletop TV mount like:
http://www.amazon.com/LUXOR-LLMSD-Mo...+monitor+mount
You can be sure that platform is quite strong since it held a heavy old style TV.

Best luck

before the flat screen days , we used to take the door off the cabinette and put the tv.... now you don't loose all that storage

I think allegro does that at the factory also....

on our new montera we just got.. I put a 32'' w/ a built in dvd player over the side entry door

we can see it perfect from the dinette... then I put a 19'' at the foot of the bed... also I changed out the dash unit to a dvd / gps/ cd./ w rear camera..

so now I have gps, can watch dvds going down the road....(wife watches and I drive) and I have a back up camera, comes in real handy hooking up the boat trailer

You might be able to just attach a new flat screen to the door on that cabinet.

Add an articulating arm that could swivel out where needed. Still have access to the stuff inside by changing the door hinge from top to the side. That would ensure the door w/TV attached could be opened fully. A piano hinge might give it more strength.

I've seen a lot of RVers use this method to upgrade their TVs. Some replace the door with a larger wood panel so they can get the TV size they want And add cabinet latches to secure it.

UPDATE:

We bought this, http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...ilpage_o01_s00

Here it is in action:





We will be adding a D ring on the side of the cabinet, so we can strap it down for travel.
