We bought the perfect mount for our 22'' flat screen. We mounted it on the doorway between the galley and bedroom. It can swing the TV to be watched in any direction and allows us to easily remove the TV for travel or to place the TV in our bedroom in our home. What is it you ask? I can only tell you that we bought it at Best Buy. I saw the paperwork for it a few days ago as I was organizing files to begin doing our taxes. The moment that I stumble upon it again I will post the info here. Sorry.
Neil

Just bought two systems for mounting flat panels......the price for both less than $30.00. These people are well known in this community. They just happen to be 3 miles from where I live. Good thing for you is that they ship check them out.

I use some of the following sites to purchase mounting brackets for various types of equipment. I have seen some that look like a great way to mount the lcd/plasma tv's to the AS either via celing or wall, or just stationary support for a counter top. Normally you can get exactly what you need (& more) for a lot less than you pay in the stores.

Another great site is Amazon.com . I have purchased hundreds of things from them without an issue. I just order a 19" LCD and an articulating arm mount tonight. If you order an articulating arm (extending bracket) pay attention to the length. Some of the arms only stretch out a few inches. If you have a 19" or larger TV it will not stretch out far enough to go around a corner. The one I just ordered stretches out 17". It should be enough to go around the corner next to the frig so that we can watch on the couch or the bedroom.

The one I ordered is VideoSecu 17 inch Extension Arm LCD Monitor Flat Screen Plasma TV Tilt & Swivel Wall Mount B08.

Good luck
Nick

Finally got a chance to upload the photos from last weeks project. I love the 19" Sharp Aquos. I like the fact that it comes with 2 remotes. One of the remotes is designed for the kitchen since it has a cooking timer, alarm clock and is magnetic (kind of tough in an aluminum capsule.) The bracket worked out well to view both in the bedroom and from the gaucho. The only thing that I would change is the bolt that holds the TV to the bracket. The bolt is designed to be permanent. I think that I will find a way to change the bolt to something that hand screws more easily. I would like to be able to take it down if the roads are too rough or if I want to watch something outside. As it stands I still would like to bungy the TV before driving anywhere. As you can see the TV has a stand, you can take that off. I like it because it holds the magnetic remote.

I also added a cheapo Walmart DVD player above the refrigerator. I love these DVD players, for $30 bucks I don't mind them breaking. It is nothing fancy but when you push play, it works. My wife goes through a lot of DVD players, I guess because she doesn't turn them off.

We went to REI, Recreational Equipment Inc. and bought Velcro in 9 foot rolls for things such as this. We used two straps with about 12 inches of overlap hooks vs loops, with the hooks turned out, the soft loops turned towards the TV.

Just mounted our new Vizio 22" last weekend. TV and mount from Costco.

The hold-down straps are attached to chrome handles, all from Home Depot.
Also from Home Depot, I got an aluminum strip 8' long x 2" wide x 1/8" thick. From that I made the piece to "sister" the bedroom side of the wall, and make the backing plate you see mounted behind the TV mount on the kitchen side of the wall.

The handles for the hold down straps are backed up by fender washers on the bedroom side of the wall. This setup keeps the TV fastened securely, allowing no movement when on the road.

Your bracket is very similar to my Sanus. I, however, can easily remove our 22" LG and tuck the flat panel into the bed for travel. The flat panel also doubles as our home bedroom tv. I mounted our bracket as you did but later placed a strap of aluminum bracing on the galley side of the partiction. Even though the tv doesn't travel on the bracket the mount was pulling the ply and door frame out. I suspect since the intial installation a young grandson may have tugged on it. I like your paneling. If it is original it appears to be the same as in our coach. But the PO had sanded and re stained it light oak. It's ok but I would have prefered the original. It looks to be Alder.
Neil.

This TV bracket also allows easy removal. Just one thumb screw, the power and coax and it lifts off. I didn't want the base attached to the TV when it is on the wall. We will carry the base in the trailer, and if we wish to put the TV in the house, we can easily do so.

I don't remember the make of the arm, The trailer is at our Northern California home as well as the box the arm cam in. I do know that we got it at Costco and it is very nice. Black powder coat, and seems to be extremely strong. All hinges are adjustable for tightness. It wasn't cheap, it was $68.99 with a $10.00 off coupon. The model number on the Costco receipt is 401940 SIMP SMF1B1.
