How to mount

Maurice, excellent information.

We've been searching for the best way to wall mount the bracket. The mount would go over the wall covering in the forward section of our Classic.

I've seen several suggested mounts. Many are on the wood walls.

How do you mount the TV bracket on the wall without going thru to the outer skin and get enough support? Also, how do you run power, coax, speaker wires, etc. without removing the wall covering?

Because of the wall support issue, we've pretty well decided on mounting the bracket to the lower credenza unit.

The factory made up this channel for me. All it does is hide the power and coax cables and looks nicer than just having the wires hanging from behind the tv unit.

They covered it in the same cloth that is on the base of the couch.

TV Mount

I just purchased a 15'' sharp w/edtv.It turned out to be really good.I just mounted it but when I was reviewing this a couple of days ago I noticed you can order the base plate and velcro for the mount I have.Tomorrow I am doing this and calling Airstream to get one of these before the christmas mailing gets to crazy.Hopefully this will get here in about a week from tomorrow.

Good move on the base plate w/velcro straps. Ours works great and is solid as a rock.

Mounting

I am mounting it on the spice rack.I checked several areas in the Airstream but decided to put it where it normally is located in other Bambi's.It seems to be the best spot for it to be.

How to Mount on Inside-Exterior Wall

I see that you mounted it on an interior wall, not an outer wall. Our best spot is an Inside-exterior wall. I just wonder how people do that and have the support needed to handle the TV weight.

Rack

I have cut some wood and also reinforce my spice rack so it will not move at all.I dont use it for anything except for my small items so it is not really very important to use.I know it can handle the weight but in time I would think that would get weak to the point of it breaking from all the bouncing of the trailer when towing it.I am not worried though.I added extra support in mine.

Help

I need some help here.I just called the dealership I got my Airstream from and tried to order the parts but they would not order it unless I had a fax machine to prove my credit card was mine.so I can not get anything from them.also I called another dealer and they told me they are allowed to sell but not the parts and sent me to a company in California.They said they could help me but was kind enough to tell me that it would be cheaper to go through a dealer that can actually get the parts.
Who here knows a good dealer that can order the parts I want with no hassle and will send it as soon as they can before christmas hits or is there anyone on this forum who works for a dealership that can help me out also.Thanks

ordered

I finally found a dealer that would work with me.Also they are sending it directly to my home instead of it going to the dealership then me.I have never had this kind of problem ordering from a dealership like these last few.Really strange how things work sometimes.

We took our trailer to the factory last summer and they installed the bracket on the wall for us right above the credenza. Since we have the same model as you do, that would probably be where you'd put one as well.

I wish I had watched then install it, but I didn't, and the trailer is now "tucked in its bed for the winter" so I can't even take a picture to show how it looks.

However, Airstream used a narrow wooded box about 10"W x 14"H to attach against the wall. It is hollow inside, with a small round hole in the middle, and the bottom is open. The box is slightly thiner at the top than at the bottom, so that when it is affixed to the wall the face is horizontal, since the wall is slightly curved. Then they mounted their customized Omni cantilever wall mounting bracket directly on top of the wooden box. Their Omni mount also has a circular hole in the middle of so that you can run the wires from the TV through both the Omni mount and the wooden box, and they are partially hidden that way. With a satellite dish and receiver, there are plenty of wires to contend with.

I assume the wooden box is screwed into the wall,(but that's the part I didn't see them install and they are not visable now) and the Omni mounting plate is screwed into it. The box gives a wider mounting surface, and I assume is stronger structurally than a just the mounting plate alone, it also enables the TV to be mounted perfectly horizontally on a curved surface, and helps to hide the wires.
