That was our solution also, 32" Sharp Aquas fits nicely on an angle with the blu-ray player next to it on the shelf under the window. Easy to bring in the house for Winter storage or for the upstairs bedroom if needed.

I feel better having it wrapped in a microfiber blanket well secured for travel, hanging on the wall...not so much.

So when is this..."old enough to know better" supposed to kick in?

I mounted a Vizio 22 in the Safari on a Sanus VM2 articulated mount.
IT weighs about 11 Lb. The trailer alrady had the same mount int he Bedroom so I just duplicated the install in the "salon". It's a fairly long metal plate with just two rather hefty wood screws (one top and one bottom). I;ve not traveled w/ the TV on the Wall and doubt I ever will.

How did you mount it to the wall/partition which backs up to the fridge? Seems pretty thin?

Thanks, Steelegood

I attached a board 1" x 6' x 8' on the thin wall to distribute the weight load. I put a screw in each corner of the board and 2 toward the center. It worked great.

I did not use any "backing plate" or any further "distribution" method for the mount (the mount is over 6" between screw holes) . Since the TV is pretty light & we do not travel with the TV on the mount, there is just the static load to handle. Most of the load is on the top screw which is 1/4" diameter.

The wall thickness in the Salon should be the same as next to the Shower (FB model) and I figured if the previous owner got away with this mounting approach, I could as well. I woul dnot suggest this for a heavier set or for traveling.

We'll see. Worst case is I will end up with two screw holes in the Salon wall and will have to use a "distribution plate".

One method you coudl think about is to use "captive nuts". You would need to cut a tapered slot in the wall, put the nut thru the slot and slide it up to the narrow end. You could then "bolt" the mount to the wall.

As stated above, the wall thickness is about 1/2" so I made a plate to distribute the load a little better and used 4 good sized screws. It has worked for over 1 yr and is as tight now as when first put up. I would NOT trust it for traveling. If you want to leave it up, then pull the frig. out and put a plate of some kind on the inside of the wall.
