Did you buy the wall mount and velcro straps from Airstream? I bought that that set-up from Airstream and it is one of the few things that did not move when I was rear ended by an 18 wheeler. Not to mention they were holding a 20" LCD. Joe

Sandy, the installation of the LCD is not as hard as you might think. Most wall mounts are 4 screws total. Finding a rib to drill into is not that hard.

I'm not familiar with Coby. My Sceptre 20" LCD monitor/TV has been great. I've driven over 40,000 miles with it hanging on the wall of my MH and have had no trouble at all with it. I bought it as an open box return from 1st Wind of Columbia SC.

I bought a wall mount from an eBay seller. The attachment of the mount side to the LCD is an industry mandated (VISA) mount pattern with four small machine bolts. Once you have the mount on the LCD you marry two sides (wall mount ~ LCD mount) while someone holds it up for you.

Now if you're planning to mount it in a cabinet it gets a little more tricky but I'm sure with a little planning this is a DIY job for sure.

"I took Airstream's cue and bought velcro straps... they were completely inadequate to the job, I found. That's why the soft, quilted covers, which are protecting the TVs much better some 4000 miles later..."



The straps that Airstream installed are heavy duty velcro approx. 2" wide, and are integrated into the mount. The whole arrangement is solid as a rock. There are some pictures in my gallery.

Looking for BarkingSpider (aka Joe from Austin)

I sent you a message about the LCD. I keep my Safari in New Braunfels, which, as you know, is just a "hop, skip & jump" away from Austin! Please read your message & reply. Thanks!

Thanks to all

I appreciate all the feedback that I've received re: LCD t.v.'s. I haven't made a decision yet (had a lot going on), so I've still got the option of keeping the 14" Toshiba w/built-in DVD that Sears exchanged the damaged t.v. for.
