Adding second TV

Has anyone added a TV to the bedroom area of Flying Cloud? If so what mounting bracket did you use? I called Jackson Center and they want $185.00 for just the bracket!!! Wal-Mart has one but it only uses 2 screws, that doesn't seem strong enough to me to handle the vibrations of traveling down the road.

I bought mine at Walmart I think it was about 50.00 . I was able to get to the back of the area were I was going to mount the TV andi put a bracket on the back side about 1 1/2 inch by 4 inch long with holes Thur it and put the bolts into the wall through the wall mount and the bracket on the other side and tightened down. Very strong now.

I got a Rocketfish at one of the big boxes for less than $50. I also dismantled the wall which contains the pocket door and backplated the thin wall. I then padded the backplate so the door wouldn't get scratched.

Seems fine running down the road for about 1 1/2 years.

I went to the same company that sourced the TV mount in the living area: moview.com. But instead of the double-swing arm I got the single swing. It has the same latching mechanism.

Moview: WSSL Single Swing Arm Mount w/ Lock

Just make sure you order the one that swings out to the left - they are not reversible. I mounted it the same way the first one is mounted - via screws directly to the bulkhead separating the shower from the bedroom.

Which brand did you get

any info on the installation? Did you use a backing plate or not? Thinking of putting one in the same area in my '06.

Thanks for the link. I just pulled the CRT tv out of the bedroom "cabinet" and will pull the cabinet off the wall & ceiling, then mount a flat panel using the Moview. I used the AS backing plate in the living area when I changed that one, used the slots for a new Velcro strap to hold it in place while driving, and a double swing arm from Costco, and wish I had seen the double swing arm that latches. I have some metal-on-metal contact when stored that will cause a long term failure, right now there's some cork gasket material as a "cushion."
