We are looking real hard at the 17FQ .. Looks like a tv could be mounted with one of those swivel arm mounts to either the cabinet or wall between the kitchen cabinets and the bed area,, that way you could watch it from the bed or the dinette... I would probably try to mount it to the wall with lags if I could find a stud...

How do you like the Clipper??

Joe

I have a Viking 17FQ. You can mount on the side of the upper cabinet by the bed. The dealer strongly recommended that I not try the camper wall.

Looking at the 17FQ as well. I really don't think the walls should be touched either. Not only are they extremely thin you have to hit a "stud" and then hope that you don't hit any wires in the wall. Cabinet seems to be the correct location without incident. One false move on the wall and you have a hole to the outside world. I'm thinking a 24" eventually will fit nicely off the cabinet.

We have a 24" TV/DVD combo. It sticks out a little from the cabinet, but it is a good size for watching from the bed or the dinette.

We put one in ours. Mounted it to the end of the cabinet. And yes, you can watch from the bed or dinette. Got our mount at Camping World. While the arm itself will lock back, the end with the tv will still swivel a bit. We remove the tv during travel, as it is very easy to remove. Getting it off the counter is really a priority in these smaller trailers.

I should have added the included screws were barely bigger than the mounting holes so I replaced the hardware with thru bolts with oversize washers and nylock nuts on the inside of the cabinet. I even added a 1/4 inch plywood backing board inside the cabinet as well. Likely overkill but I tend to over-engineer things!😉
