Do you guys know if mounts like that Road Ready from Amazon will work with just the backer board? I need to mount one in my 24 on the cupboard with the backer board but every mount I find seems to want a stud. The TV is 29 inches but it is feather light, which is why i bought it. Lighter than most 22 inch tvs i was looking at.

Sponge I didn't check out which tv mount you want to use but the one I had in the 24HFS mounted above the stereo. I took down the under cabinet stereo and cut a bigger hole in cabinet to get my hand up through and bolted it instead of relying on regular screws.

Very interesting! I wish they just gave you a pass through where the cable connections are so I could do the same. I may have to try the same route as you did so I appreciate the idea. I have no idea how much weight those backer boards support.

This is what I need! Nice job!
When you finish tweaking it can you post the measurements?

I'm not sure how much it would support I think our tv is a 22". It look like it may have been a 3/4" thick backing. I was going to cut out a 4" or 5" wide piece and also put it up behind the backer just for piece of mind but I didn't. I still removed the tv when traveling just in case......some of the roads in PA can get a little rough, especially the turnpike!

Sponge I meant to say cut a 4" or 5" wide piece of plywood.

CRZ, Here are the measurements for the tv stand I made.

1" thin wall square tubing: Base is 23"x23" (four legs welded into a cross). When I welded the base the tubing was cut and then welded in such a manner that the welding arched the center up. That way the tips of the legs touch the ground. I then welded a 10" section of 1 1/4" thin wall tubing to the center of the base. It would be better to get a piece of 1" id tubing but I used scrap that I had laying around. After checking that everything was square and the stand sat level, I took a 40" section of 1" tubing and welded the extra wall bracket to it. I drilled a 1/4" hole through the base and upright so I could slip a bolt though to hold the base and upright together. To store I just pull the bolt and then the upright from the base. It is very light and portable. The only thing I think would make it better is to drill the legs and weld on 4 nuts so bolts could be threaded up or down through the legs to level it on uneven ground.

We used it all weekend and it worked great on level ground with a 40" flat screen. I could move the stand around to keep any glare off the screen.

X10, I am looking at the Ready America Travel TV mount above the cupboard. Does yours rotate enough to view from table in slide out?

Yes it does, lots of movement on it. Just remember it is only strong enough for a TV of up to 27" and 40 lbs.

Yea, thanks X10 I see they have one for bigger tv's but it only comes out 7.5" and the one you have extends 16". I am not sure if 7.5" will get the tv out far enough to see sitting in the slide out.
