Rear TV

I am getting ready to purchase a TV for the bedroom and am considering mounting a 32" on the ceiling.

Has anybody done this? How did it go?

I am sure I will need above the ceiling support for the mount and just want to know if I am going where no Man has gone before or not.

Thanks in advance.

Thank you for the input guys. Has anyone gone above the ceiling to add reinforcing for the mount? Judging from what I have seen when mounting the front TV I will need something.

I would make sure the TV mount spans two joists in the ceiling. And is attached to both.
So, four good sized self tappers. Make sure you get the length right so it doesn't go through the outer skin.
I think the joists are on 16" on center.
If you have a air conditioning vent nearby, you can pull that down and find one of the joists and then measure from there. Put a small test hole to ensure you found the joist. You could also use a Stud Finder available at any home depot / loews etc.

I just recently bought a 40 inch Samsung 4K. It only weighs 17 lbs. So the newest TVs are a lot lighter than the older ones and it really doesn't take a lot to hold them in place.

Something I would point out. When you are looking for a TV, you might think getting 4K is not necessary. From a resolution point, when you are that close, you are right, However If someone happens to shoot a video in 4K on their cellphone, it won't play back on your 1080P TV. Some of the more recent TVs have an internet browser and some do not. Find one that does.

We replaced our main living TV with a 43 Samsung 4K. Being so close to it as in a motorhome I wouldnt buy anything but a 4K tv. The clarity that it has is just amazing, just like looking through a window.
