Anyone mount a TV in their Vibe?

Got a great deal from a neighbor on a 32" flat screen TV today to mount in the Vibe. Has anyone mounted a TV mounting bracket to the block that is on the rotating portion between the bedroom and living area? Not sure what type and size of mounting hardware to use. Thanks in advance.

I just mounted a 32" on our pivot block in our 308BHS Vibe this weekend.

Bought a standard mount from Walmart and it worked just fine. I did use a couple of bolts with washers and locknuts instead of the provided lags though.

My 32" tv happens to measure around 31.5" wide and I cannot pivot it around because of the stop block on the one side though😡.

Here's a pic of the mount we got...Click image for larger version

We used to have a 2015 Vibe 308bhs before we lost in a fire a few months ago. I did the exact same thing. Went to walmart and bought a mount, but I bought one that had an arm on it so you could pull it out a bit and point it towards the couch. I had a 32" TV and I was able to rotate mine so maybe its the difference in mounts.

I used lag bolts and just made sure they didn't poke through to the other side.

Our new Rockwood came with a TV already mounted and the mount had a quick release where it can be moved outside. If I were to do it again I would do this way. The kids like playing video games and watching TV (like when they are at a BBQ cook off with me) outside.

Good luck.

I think I would like to go the lag bolt method, but I'm guessing those are going to be pretty short lag bolts.
