Question Best Method to transport Plasma TV

We recently purchased a flat screen plasma TV for our AS. I am not sure if it would be better to secure this in the corner or lay it flat on a bed or setee.
Does anyone have any experience with this type of TV ?

I was in Jackson Center the week before last for some repairs (Ugh!) to my (almost) new 2004 30' Classic, and happened to see the new wall mounted TV stand that Airstream is now selling for flat screen TV's, and installing in the 2005 models. I didn't have time to ask about having one of these put in my trailer, but that's going to be on my list of things (along with satellite TV) to buy when we get underway camping again next spring.

With the layout of our 30' model, we put our TV on the credenza to watch it, but have to turn it around when we watch from the dinettte versus the couch, then put in on the floor while trailering - that's kind of an inconvenience to do. With the wall mounted version, you put the flat screen TV on the wall mount and that's where it stays - just turn it around to watch from either the kitchen or the living room. It may have velcro to hold the tv when towing -- I didn't look at it that closely -- does anyone know?

It's a bit pricey, I think several hundred dollars, plus installation, but it would be worth it for my wife and me.

We were shopping for a large flat-screen last year & bought LCD. If I remember, plasma screens cannot be laid down. Not sure if size had anything to do with it. I'd check on that.

We have a 23" Sony LCD screen that fits nicely on the credenza of our 34.

When traveling, we store it in the blue shipping bag that came with it ... then we lie it face down on the bed ... after that I place a rather heavy pillow on top of it.

So far ... no problems.

We placed our lcd TV on the bed only to find it on the floor once. So we looked where it landed without damage and figured that would be the best place to store it while in tow. No problems since, face down on the carpeted floor in the bedroom.
