Flat Screen in 3807 DSDP

I have the 3807 Dutch Star and I am wondering if a flat screen tv could be installed on the mirrored wall that is exposed when the driver side slide is extended. There is some space between the slide and the wall. I just wondered what is behind the mirror.

I'm assuming that the wall is stationary and there's something on the other side like the toilet?
If so then the wall is pretty thin and hollow although a vent pipe might go through it. You'd have to do some investigating. The wall panel by itself would not be enough to support the TV and mount.

I had this exact thing done on my Canyon Star. Newmar cut a hole in the wall. On the backside (just above the toilet) they installed an access door to reach all the cable hook-ups. On the front wall, they built a recessed frame that the TV fits into. A bracket was constructed out of angle iron and the TV was bolted to it. It works well, plenty of room between the TV and slide, and the arrangement is much better for viewing than over the windshield.

Confirm there is sufficient clearance with the slide wood trim. Some flat screens are not all that flat.
