I like working with metal and I have the tools so I fabricates and adapter out of 1/8 in. alum. Two sets of holes, one set fits TV other fits Mount. I used 3/16 nuts and screws to attach adapter to mount and correct screws to attach adapter to TV.

I ran into the same issue I also have a 26DBH, I ended up removing the original bracket and mounted a very similar but larger metal bracket that was ordered on Amazon. I aligned the top holes of the new bracket about 1 and 1/2 inches below the top of the original bracket and used the larger screws included. The name of the bracket is:
"VideoSecu TV Wall Mount Flush Ultra Slim Bracket for most 19" 20" 22" 24" 26" 27" 29" 32" LCD LED Flat Panel Screen Monitor TV VESA 200mm, 200x100mm, 100mm ML206B 1QG[/B] for about $15.00. There are screws on the bottom of the mount to securely fasten the TV to the wall mount so it would not bounce out. I also ordered 90deg video cables.
I hope this helps.

I just experienced this with our new 26dbh. The PAW Indusries wall mount and TV mount is a 75 X 75 bolt pattern. I am using a 40" Samsung LED TV which has a 200 X 200 mount pattern. I purchased a 75 X 75 to 200 X 200 adapter from Amazon which works perfectly. However, I did find the 40" a bit too big to hang. I will likely go down to a 32" or something in between if it's out there.

On mine I had to move the mount up about a foot in order for my 29" tv to fit. It's solid wall all the way to the ceiling. I usually take it down and travel with it on my bed. Did forget once and luckily 3 hours later it was still there not even loose.

If you are saying the bracket cannot handle the weight, that is time to get a bigger bracket, but since most tvs now are so light now that about any bracket can handle it I will assume you mean the VESA bolt pattern is too small for the new TV. In that case MaxQ metal products in Ontario, California is the manufacturer who makes the brackets used in our local FR plant. They have an adapter plate that will bolt to the 75mm or 100mm plate on a small bracket and allow a bigger bolt pattern. They told me it was an $8 option so plus shipping? it might solve your problem. Their web site is a little rough and they told me it is being rebuilt, but they are great to do business with. And wait for it-----it is Asian owners who proudly boast that their products are MADE IN AMERICA. Evidently made right there in their shop. YEAH!!

Question on these mounts. Did all of your rigs come with the mounts for the TV as well as the ones mounted in and out of the camper? Mine didn't come with the one for the TV and our salesman said we have to buy them separate even though the guy that did our walk thru said it came in our welcome packet. If you all got them, I'll be taking a trip down to get it.

Yes, ours came with the camper in the welcome packet. It was in a drawer under the sink with all the manuals and stuff.
