I installed a small flat screen TV and swivel mount under the overhead cabinets on the curb side. The TV weighs very little but I added several more fasteners to the cabinet at the ceiling for more support. I havent had any droop in the cabinet. Was able to fish the wires for the TV through the wall.Click image for larger version

Hi Mike,
I monitor a couple of these sites and noticed your chair in the photo you posted for the flat screen TV. It doesn't seem bulky like the typical front captain chair. Is it comfortable during a long drive? Does the drivers chair match? And would you mind letting me know where you got it.
Thanks
Malcolm

The "captains chairs" are just the original stock seats. Im not absolutely sure of the manufacturer but I believe they are Flexsteel. They are still comfortable after all these years but they are showing their age in the leather. I believe Ill have them recovered with new foam in the next year or so. I want to use the same fabric that I used on the couch recover.

Thank you, its not fancy by any means but its comfortable for us. We have really grown to love traveling in the 310. What a view out that big windshield going down the road.

Mike,

Thanks for the info. From the first picture the seat looked that it of a thin profile design. I've been looking for that type to replace my existing captains chairs in hopes to get a set that would have a hard shell back.

Thanks again.

We have the Knoedler chairs and they are slimmer than the Flexsteel and more comfortable
