Do you have any pics of what the TV mount looks like mounted to the wall? I'm trying to figure out if a single stud mounting holes is enough to support the weight of the TV.

Awesome sewage storage solution! Do you have any pics of how it mounts to the carriage?

I was only going to use screws but when I installed the wood panel I Gorilla glued it to the wall to insure it won't come off. I still have to stain it or cover with some contact paper soon.

Television mount

When I upgraded the television in my Sunseeker I took the suggestion of another member and used Monoprice to buy the articulated mount(s).
TV Wall Mounts

This is the thread I posted to help out when I bought the mount and installed it. I checked that thread and all of the photos I uploaded are gone!
I can repost or send if needed.

New TV mount for camper

Hope this helps

I had a cheapo from Wallyworld ... recently went with a good one from Lowes. It was about $90 ... I use a strap when traveling for peace of mind. Been in some terrible roads with no problems.
