Television Mounting

Good morning all.

I'm getting ready for the next trip and I was wondering what you guys have done to secure your televisions. I have a regular 20" that can be seen in the link below.

I have a strap that goes around the back and through the shelf, but I'm afraid that if I hit a big bump it will put it up over the lip on the shelf and the strap will slide down and off to the floor it goes...any suggestions. I don't really want to have to put it on the floor when I tow it around.

Hi jrk274--We use our TV in the same position as your picts show, but find the low tech way of placing it on the floor against the gaucho still the easiest, safest way to travel.--Frank S

We have gone to LCD TVs. They are much lighter and easiely placed on the floor. They also move around easiely if you wish to watch TV outside with friends over.

I've been wondering the same thing about mounting. Also, the LCD tv's, can they be mounted directly to the wall?

If your strap is wide enough, you can get velcro and attach to the strap and sides of the TV so it can't slide down or you could attach a hook to the wall behind the TV and wrap a bungie cord around the TV to keep it away from the edge. Both are easy to remove and inexpensive.

We went LCD and bought the backer plate and Omni arm that Airstream uses and the Velcro strap wouldn't vit arount our TV so we went the bungie route to hold the TV against the studs on the backer plate.

I hadn't thought of putting a strap across the front to hold it. I think that will work great. I don't want to go buy an LCD for it when I already have a new tv that wasn't in use anywhere else that fits in there perfectly. When this one breaks that will be it's replacement.

Have a good night
