R-Pod 179 TV mount position

Hi folks
New 2018 R-Pod 179 owner here; we got ours without the factory-installed TV, so I'm looking to add my own mount and TV.
I did see another one on the lot that had the TV, and I've done some research to see where other podders have their mount installed.
I've marked the area (red box) on the attached photo of our 179 interior - I was going to ask if that's the right place, I presume there's a stud under there.

Can anyone tell me how wide the stud is, please? This might have an affect on which mount I buy, considering the width of the base plate that comes with whichever mount I choose.

On that note, is there a favourite mount at the moment that people recommend? I know that I'll want one that tilts down as much as possible to improve viewing while lying in bed.
I'm looking at getting a 22" TV, that seems to be the widest one that will store flat against that wardrobe wall while driving.

Thanks very much!

You can find the width by using a stud finder in that area

24 " TV in a 179

What I did to move from the 19" TV it came with was to make a plate with the same thickness but twice the width and drilled the same holes for mounting as the stock plate and then drilled the holes to mount the TV on the other end. Works just fine folds flat just like the stock mount. In fact you probably could go with a 29" TV.
