Mounting A TV to End Cap

Hello.

I have removed the original 12 volt light on the curb-side end cap of a 1967 GT and have replaced it with a 12 volt adapter to power a TV. This will also be the foot of the bed. My thought was to mount a 12 volt flat screen tv with a wall mount in this area.

My question is this: is there a solid place to mount the tv in this area? There are not vertical rivet lines in this area, just horizontal. What kind of solid structure lives behind the fiberglass and aluminum walls? I am assuming the aluminum wall is not nearly enough support for the weight.

Thank you.

Probably not, but how heavy is the flat screen tv?

The weight will be the big thing. When the trailer is stationary it might be ok, but might not be ok if the trailer is bouncing around going down the road.

I understand what it is that you are trying to do! However, it's harder said than done! If it were me I would uses a 4" to 5" 14 GA of stainless steel and place it horizontally so that one end would attach to your front wood cabinet and the other end would attach to the wall rib or in this case door frame... It would run just above your old light position. The is no internal support inside the wall anywhere in that area!

Purchase one of the super thin lightweight LED/LCd screens. I bought a 23" Vizio from Costco for $200 online. It is 2.5" thick and very lightweight to hang.

Does it come with a 12 volt adapter or are those easy to find at say Radio Shack?
