Exterior tv mount for solera?

I want to put an exterior tv mount next to the tv gear (plug, 12v plug, antennae wire) on the passenger side of our 2014 Solera S. I have seen people use a suction based product that I do not want to use. I need a mount that can stay affixed to the side and from which I can remove and replace the tv when needed. I also need to know precisely where the mount can be placed with screws. A stud finder will not work due to sheet metal. Any help would be appreciated. Pictures would be great.

How about setting the TV on a small folding table near the hookups for it?

What about mounting your TV in a better position inside so you can watch TV inside and outside?
See my pictures in that thread:
Outside TV

In addition its mounted with a 10$ quick disconnect - that"s why the the stand is still attached. I can detach myTV in 10 sec and put it anywhere!

Nice job Loefflerh. That solution is not for me. I did that on a travel trailer and had to sit too far away when outside.
Jngspencer- that may be what I have to do. I was kind of hoping to get a matching mount for the bed area and move tv from bedroom to outside when needed.

use a feeler

Take off an outside cover plate or appliance cover and probe for a stud with a stiff wire. Also if you contact the tech guys at your mfg they can fax the layout for studs on your unit.

Sorry I can't help. . .I'm only responding so that I receive emails alerts to any other responses to this thread: I'm interested too.

Thanks

I use the MOR/ryde mounts on my trailer. I can move the TV inside and hang it on the side of the trailer. very easy. Be careful that you have enough support behind the wall to handle the weight.

Stormrider, thanks. Any Solara owners able to provide info on support behind the wall? I looked at Stormrider's mounts online. They looked pretty good. Someone mentioned using a table but mostly I want the tv outside for football tailgating. Most people stand so table is to low.

Camping World sells a very thin two piece TV mount. I have one half permanently mounted on the side of my Solara. It is held on with four small sheet metal screws and silicone rubber adhesive. I have never had a problem with looseness and I didn't worry about finding a wall stud, after all its not out there while going down the road. I matched the striping of the decals with spray paint of the same color. Don't even see it if you're not looking for it

Take a look at this. This is what I have in my rear bedroom. The swing arm part easily detaches from the wall bracket for storage while traveling. The bracket could be mounted to an outside wall without any difficulty. Even buying a second bracket is an option so the TV could be used inside or out.
