Advice on mounting a TV - 1968

I have finished the refer vent cut-down and have been replacing and staining inner wooden panels. All exterior lights are replaced. Now I need your advice. I have a 19" Insignia flat screen and was thinking of mounting it flush to the wall. I do not think it will hold it during travel. Original idea of mounting it to Rt. side of upper cabinet end won't work-TV juts out-not stable. Is it just safer to sit it on a table and pack it in the car? Running out of options. Again, many thanks to you for responding with ideas.

TV mounting location.

Randy. I have a 67 globetrotter. I built a box in the cabinet that is wedged and attached to both sides of the cabinet. I plan on running a brace to the side wall as well. This box gives you a solid 3/4" backing for your TV mount to sink into and not come loose. The mount is a peerless found at many places. I tightned the assembly down and when pushed up against the cabinet it doesnt move during travel and I have stopped suddenly a few times so far. I also ran a outlet to the box so I can plug my TV and Playstation3 right in. The romex runs down the cabinet, behind the tub, and ties into the breaker box in the rear of the trailer. Feel free to contact me directly if you have any questions. To me, this is the best spot in the globetrotter because wherever you sit, you can see the TV.

They used to have a lot of that stuff on the Airstream website until just a few days ago,,, now it is gone.

It is out there somewhere I am sure, I don't know where though.

Not to hijack the thread but your interior is beautiful and very warm. You have anymore pics? What is the finish on the walls?
