Need Front TV Mount Recommendation for 07 AB
 
I have a 2007 Allegro Bus that has the original 32" Panasonic TV. I would like to replace it with a 42". I know there may be some folks who have done this. If you have or know I would like to hear as to what kind of mount did you use and any other helpful pointers? Thanks kindly for your input!

I would be inclined to remove the 32 and look at moving the factory mount rearward and reusing it to mount the 42 as it should be using same mounting technique.it would hang about 2 inches below the current(lower) wood trim

iam basing this idea on the fact I have a AB with a front 32 and mid 42 LCD and measured the 42 to see how much area there was to mount one up front

i removed my tv and bracket and installed a 2x4 to the bottom of rear of tv that rested on the bottomof tv cab and the top 2x4 that i mounted to the back of the tv at the top two back screws I was able to send two screws from the back of cabinet to draw the tv tight to the appostered cabinet minus the cherry face frame and all i had left to do is add a 2"black filler strip on the top to ceiling

you did this in a 2007 Allegro Bus all the while installing a 42 inch LCD TV?

It sounds like a logical approach! I'll definitely try your suggestion when it is not so cold and I can work on my coach. Thanks for sharing it

Iam sure SRH and others can install a front Tv in place of another without driving all the way to alabama.

We had ours done in Junction City, Oregon last year at Innovative Coachworks. He put in a 6000 series 46" Samsung. We have an 05, Allegro Bus and the TV fit in the original wood trim and looks factory. It still has wood showing all the way around. I think the TV only weighed 20 lbs, way lighter than the original monster. You can get it in 3D too if you want to. Steve

steve?
That tv is 43 inches wide? Unless innovative streached the factory wood surround with new wood added there is no way the factory wood will work.
Also at 43 inches wide you would be running into the cabinet doors beside the existing tV ,s and they will have to be trimmed
