I wrapped our LCD in one of my Polartec fleece pullovers and laid it on the bed until I could reposition the wall mount to accommodate the larger sized TV set. It worked just fine. Here's something that some of you may be interested in that I saw at IKEA this weekend. It's lightweight, rather inexpensive, and made (mostly) out of aluminum, which would look good in any Airstream.

Hi Sky,

What you could do is have a straight mounting post made that would fit in the cabinet space bolted at the bottom and top. A Peerless swing arm mount would allow you to pull the TV out of the cabinet and swivel to the desired viewing location. I had a gooseneck version made to support my 32" LCD from the website listed below using the 4"x4" baseplate at both ends.

Here is what I did.

We store our 28in LCD on the front couch, covered and screen-side up and it has never moved. The rear bed room is the harshest riding area according to my observations and moveable items move forward, ie off the bed, if the brakes need to be set hard. The couch is also close to the credenza where we set it up to watch.

I agree, My philosophy is to store delicate things on teh lowest level to which they might otherwise find there own way! We have always carried tv's on the floor.

Ours is wall mounted with a swing arm to watch it from the side bed or from our recently completed front dinette. We have a bungee cord mounted to the wall behind the TV and pull it to the wall and wrap the bunge to it. This gives it a slight play (willow vs oak) and has travelled very well.

I mounted a 19" to the end of the streetside overhead cabinet facing the gaucho sofa. I used a 4 way tilting bracket that will extend around the corner and face the curbside (my wifes) bed. (she likes to watch tv at night, I don't need it to fall asleep) Also it will extend toward the door so sitting outside under the awning I can watch the game (Roll Tide!) I used a strap, riveted to the ceiling behind the tv that holds up the tv and also keeps it from extending while traveling. I notoced the new AS trailers have a strap also. Works for me. I bought my tv from target, 19" was the lightest one on the shelf and the controls are on the left side looking at the screen. Dvd player is in the the overhead above the sofa. 8 hr road trip, all is well.

22 inch lcd mounted to the metal folding door for older tv appiications. I place it backside down on the carpet, streetside,when traveling still hooked up to all the connections. That way it can never fall and the screen is not rubbing against anything. It has the 4 rubber mounts and set up is less than 10 seconds.

i would never travel with it on the wall. O, a new best horrible road. I40 through Oklahoma City. I mean this is the worst stretch yet. I was down to 40 mph.

Ours sets on the floor, against the couch (trailer front), in the box it shipped in.
It rests nicely in its Styrofoam cradle. It can't fall or slide forward when I hit the
breaks. Box goes in closet after tv is setup.

A second vote for I40 in OKC

I wasn't going to comment on this thread since there were so many in agreement, our 32" travels on the bed (thick comforter), but the I40 comment really rang true. We came through there last September and could not believe how bad the roads were!

we used to store our 22" LCD on one of the beds also...but I was concerned about all the wear on the three plugs into the TV, from hooking and unhooking at each stop...

We don't use a wall mount, so I drilled two holes in the TV's pedestal base and through the cabinet up front where we always set the TV...this is right up front, close to the fwd windows, and so the road 'bounce' is much less of a issue...we do however, place two small foam pillows between the TV and the cabinet surface to keep the TV from doing any 'rocking' motion on it's pedestal while we're underway - and all those plugs get to stay in place...

the o.p. has a 32 inch tele, brand/model UNKNOWN.

these can be significantly heavier than most of the telez sold with rvs.

the weight may range from 10-30 kgs depending on model.

the o.p also has a 34 foot trayla! which means the back bed is WAY more subject to movement UP/down and sidewayz...

i would not carry a large tv in ANY position (even in the box) at the back of a 34...

although using the box/packing/upright is a GOOD idea, someplace forward inside.

while many of us do transports these gizmos horizontally,

NONE of the manufacturers ship or store them in ANY position other than UPRIGHT.

the o.p. might want to contact tech support and ask the manufacturer...

or post more details.

all of the true things that i am about to tell you are shameless lies. l.b.j.

we are here on earth to fart around. don't let anybody tell you any different. k.v.

Bulkhead mounted 24"-er...

We use a wall-mounted rig for our 12VDC flat screen. It swivels around to enable us to view from either the center bunks or from the goucho...

For on road mode: I've got a bungie cord that holds the screen securely to the bulkhead. If you look closely in the attached foto, you'll see the bungie cord diagonally across the screen...
