Front TV mount mod

The front TV was mounted too high for viewing from the sofa in terms of neck comfort, and we were so far off-axis the LCD display did not look good. One solution was to add another mount to the built-in mount that allows the TV to swing down to a better angle. We got a Morryde TV1-006H that swings 18” (but greater swing distance might be helpful). The add-on mount needed holes drilled to attach it to the VESA mount on the pre-existing arm, and we then bolted them together. The TV is not hooked up in the photos, and that TV is pretty small (the larger one that came with the RV wants to go visit Elkhart again, so we are using a spare). But the entire mount seems pretty secure, and when the TV is stowed it is sufficiently unobtrusive. Not great but reasonably effective...
Other ideas to make this a bit better?

Nice move! Looks like a decent solution.

I like that. Looks good and functional as is. Wish I'd have thought of it when we had our Forester. Makes perfect sense.

At least in Heaven, RVs will be perfect, and I won't have to keep fixing them.
