This is great information. For safety sake, should the refrigerator be removed to perform this installation. On my unit, I am wondering 1) how much room is between the inner wall and the refrigerator and 2) the exterior wall over the credenza appears to be just paneling with a limited area to screw the bracket to the wall - so a board between the paneling appears necessary. Thanks for your comments.

Here are the pictures. The fridge was not removed, although if it were already out, you could put another panel behind the mount to make it more rigid.

I have my wall mount connected to my flat screen. I used the rabbit ears because I am still trying to find the sattelite. I did not connect directly to the wall. I took a piece of 1" X 6" and connected it to the mount. I felt I would get a better mount that way.

You know Terry I was thinking as I read these post on the TV installations. What about taking some of the expandable screws and drill holes all the way through. This way it would give some added reinforcement from the back side. Or maybe some certs on the wall screwed through a piece of back up board cut to the size of the mount. Any way just some thoughts.

How has your installation held up? It's been few months now. Would you recommend it again or suggest something else? Thanks for you help!!1

My installation has been great. I hid all the wires and got rid of the antenna. I do take the TV off the mount when we are traveling on the road. It is very easy because it slides in and out.

Looks like the same mount I used

I mounted it (22" Vizio) to the wall panel directly. Was concerned about the weight but it holds up fine. Holes drilled through the panel with a small nuts on the back side. I take it down for travel so it doesn't swing out.
Mounted the stereo/dvd player in the overhead bin above the TV where there is power. Antenna runs down the back side along the fridge vent and out the door of the panel.
TV swings out to face the bedroom as well.

I'll soon be mounting a couple 23" Samsungs onto swivel mounts - one in the 'living room', mounted on the front wall of the bathroom, the other in the bedroom, mounted on the back wall of the bathroom.

I have to admit being a bit apprehensive about the weight, but it seems that others have mounted much larger TVs than 23" (I think I remember a 32"? wow...). We're going to install a support plate of sorts on both of the bathroom walls - but what I'm mainly concerned with now is esthetics in the bathroom.

Hubby suggested plywood and painting it white which just gives me the blahs. Maybe a piece of aluminum? But that wouldn't be as strong as plywood, is that correct?

Maybe I'll hang a few lightweight picture frames in the bathroom to hide the necessary but ugly support block. I already have a towel ring in there, so I don't need another one...

On the Edge

On my '77...
Instead of mounting in the center of the wall and using the arm to collapse on itself during folding, I mounted it into the edged of the wall and actually let the lag screws go into part of the refridg' frame. An Ape could swing on the arm with out it moving! The side benefit, the television could swing all the way around the edge of the fridge, point rearward and be seen in the bedroom.

Sorry, no photos...the trailer now has new home...

I stold Terry's photo and did a markup to show where I mounted mine...

I mounted a 15" LCD TV on an extendable swivel mount four years ago and it's held up great during travels.

Hmmm. I don't have ready access to my A/S to see what I could 'jimmy' up. We almost got stuck in the snow yesterday going out to the barn where it's overwintering to get some measurements... At any rate, I'm guessing I could mount the bedroom TV in the same sort of fashion - right on the corner. But I'm not sure about the other TV. I seem to remember that the CCD wall on the 28' behind the dinette is curved where it transitions to the hallway. In that case I'd have to do a regular mount and bolster it on the other side with something - if I don't then I'd always be slightly nervous on bumpier roads that the mount or wall would fail.

If you've ever driven your Airstream to Mont Tremblant in Quebec from Ottawa, you'd know what I was talking about.

I also added a bunge cord to hold the television up and against the wall. A hole in the interior skin under the valence was one attachment point, the refridge frame was the other.

20,000 miles and no problems!

Since I'm a photo thief on this thead...how about another one...stolen and marked up

LOL, no worries! You did such a good job with the photoshop, it's looks real.
