Need Guidance selecting/installing TV
I just purchased a 2005 vintage 25' Safari Twin Bed. This trailer has never seen a TV despite the antenna that it came installed with. I would like to mount a flat screen TV on the wall that frames the forward-facing side of the fridge but I am concerned about the proximity of the fridge. I certainly don't want to risk drilling into it. Do I need to actually remove the fridge in order to drill through the wall to install a backing plate? I assume such a thing is necessary but perhaps not. Or is the wall thickness substantial enough to just use wood screws to support a wall mount and an attached flat screen TV?
As for the bedroom, the wardrobe over the starboard side twin bed has a door that covers a (I assume) removable panel. I think that it was intended for a TV. In 2005 flat screens were beginning to become the norm in RV's, so the door might have been a manufacturing holdover from tube TV days. At any rate, I can drill through the door and panel. Access behind them is easy.
As an aside, has anyone had experience with flat screen TV/DVD combo units? I've not seen any advertised with Blu-ray by the way. Don't have to have blu-ray but it'd be nice.
Just looking for any guidance and perhaps similar vintage setups.
