Question Mounting TV in Entertainment Center in 2010 Salem 27BHSS

As the title suggests I am curious to know if anyone has any experience in mounting a TV into the entertainment center of a Salem 27BHSS (or similar model). The entertainment center is very close to the new 26TBUD setup but mine does not spin around, it's a fixed wall between the bedroom and living room, with spaces on both sides for a TV.
I am afraid to bugger up my nice new trailer experimenting with this. I have a 32" or 35" (can't remember which) TV in my work out room right now that is used only when I work out and is small enough to take with us for the kids when we go on trips. I don't mind moving from the house to the trailer. The TV is just a hair too big to fit in with the current molding of the entertainment center, which isn't a huge deal I have a brother in law in cabinetry who can help adjust the hole in the entertainment center.
What I'd like to know is; is the wall between the LR and BR strong enough to just throw a TV mount up or are there certain places I need to secure the mount to the wall? Please help here, I've scrolled through the pages and have found tons of other useful information but nothing pertaining to this. Thanks for the help guys & gals.

Disclaimer: I have never done this in your model trailer

I have however done it on several walls in RV's, some very thin. Almost everytime I have done it I used a piece of 1/2" or 3/4" plywood and glued/fastened it to the wall behind the TV (large as possible without it showing once the TV is mounted) for max rigidity then fastened a standard wall mount to the plywood. Many of the installations you see are done in this fashion.
