2014 grey wolf 26dbh television size

We just purchased a 26dbh and absolutely love it. I do have a question for other grey wolf owners about what tv to get. I bought a 32" Visio and either the mounting bracket on the wall is too low or the placement for the bracket on the tv is too high. It seems that even if I get a smaller tv, I will still have the same problem. The mounting bracket in the trailer is made by paw international and it is the type where the tv side onto the bracket. Any suggestions? Thanks!

are 26dbh came with a 24" insignia LED. fits fine. It looks to me like there would be lots of room to mount a 32" up there. I was actually planning on putting a bigger tv up. I think how mounting brackets mount to the back of TV's are fairly standard so moving the wall bracket up should work. I can post a pic of our tv mounted in the trailer if you want?

Thanks for the reply. Would you mind posting a pic or seeing how high the bracket is on the wall?

Thanks for the pic. I think my wall bracket was just placed to low. I guess I'll just move it up a few inches. Is the place for your bracket on the tv close to the top?

TV Mods 26DBH

I added a 29" Emerson TV. I ordered an additional tv PAW mount and mounted the one on the wall a retractable bracket (so i could clear the upper cabinet). That way the TV can be removed for transit and can be brought out side as needed. The smaller TV that came with the trailer is used in the bedroom only. I also did the rewire mod I found on this site. I then mounted my satellite receiver in the cubby hole below the TV. All of the mods were super easy and took about an hour to complete.

I have been thinking of trying something like this for our Sat box. The ledge looks like a rats nest of wires and cables when all hooked up. There had to be a better way to do this... Just saying!

I bought a bigger TV for my own 2013 26dbh also, and the bracket was the same story... but think this through 1st before moving your bracket! It's a flimsy cheap plastic bracket and the wall studs are barely 2X2's... if you want a bigger and heavier TV, you should just stand it on it's feet and lay it on the bed to travel... if you mount a heavier TV on the cheap plastic brackets that are screwed into flimsy 2X2 wall studs... hit a big bump and it may all tear out. I just keep the little original TV up while travelling and lay the replacement bigger one on its face on the bed to avoid that. It would sure suck to arrive for some R&R and open up the camper door to find it all tore down during a trip.

Maybe I'm just overcautious, but better safe than sorry.
