Television bracket - 2007 Classic

Has anyone done something with that awful swing-arm television mount?

It is hard to deploy.
It is hard to stow.
It is heavy.
When stowed, it extends into the aisle.
When stowed, it covers up the thermostat. Procedure for turning on furnace on a cold morning: a) deploy television, b) adjust thermostat, c) stow television.
It isn't strong enough to keep the television level.
The wires get in the way of the mechanism.
People sitting in the dinette hit their heads on the television's power switch, turning it on.

Drunken clowns with bees in their pants could design a better system using parts from Radio Shack.

Or is it just me?

I agree. I would rather have a fixed mount instead of the swing arm. It would take less space and the TV would be more secure while traveling.

Here's what I ended up with:

Amazon.com: PYLE PSW578UT 23 to 37 Inch Ultra-Thin Flat Panel TV Wall Mount: Electronics

I had to trim the vertical pieces a little with a hacksaw.

I have the same mount in my 2008 Classic 25fb mounted on the fridge wall but my thermostat is located on the bedroom shower wall. It hasn't been enough of a pain to remove it. I kinda like the flexibility of changing the angle so it can be viewed from the rear curb dinette seat. I use a Velcro strap to make sure it doesn't come unlatched in transit. Recently upgraded from the old Sony 23" LCD to an Insignia 28" LED and didn't have to move the mount.

TV mounts conform to the VESA standard, so TV's have mounting points at various spacing to match up with mounts.
I have a hinged mount at home, and I had to mount it about 5 degrees off vertical to account for all the play in the swivel.
