Largest Television size

Somewhat of a longshot here, but I wanted to know what's the biggest TV that I could use in my 274DBH on the rock wall with the mounts that were provided. I have tried a 22" and next will try a 32", but was wondering if a 40 or 42 inch would work.

What size television is most common?

Please share.

I had a 26DBH and bought a bigger TV. I could NOT simply go by advertised size, such as 39 inch, or 32 inch. I had to either measure physically or read closely the actual physical dimensions. We ended up with a 39" Phillips which barely fit in the space. The mounts were useless though......we drilled holes in the wall and put in a strong mount.

Thanks for the info. I'm on the fence about these mounts that come installed in the TTs. I think tthey're perfect for 22 inch and below, but what if you wanted a bigger TV, I think you would run into having to replace the mount because of not being able to slide the TV on to it. Not enough ceiling clearance. I do like the mobile aspect of the mount. I like being able to swap the TV from inside the trailer to outside the trailer very easily.

Hey there,

Exactly the troubles that I had. I wanted a large TV there, but could not fit the 42 inch I bought due to not being able to slide the TV into the mount. TV wasn't going anywhere, so the mount was out. Purchased a new mount off of Amazon, and my 42 inch fit beautify. I own a 2016 274DBH.

Could you please share which mount you bought? Just purchased a 32" Vizio to put in my 2017 26DBH today.

32 in our 26dbh. Used a mount from Amazon that articulates. Made a bracket from wood to use the paw mount so I could still use it in the bedroom or, dare I say outdoors. I agree to measure the TV.. At best buy a 32" was not always 32" od.

I successfully hung a 32" with a chest hair of space to spare. I would guess 32" is the maximum size possible.

Hello...

Sure, for the living wall, I purchased the following mount (Orbital 12" to 39" TV Wall Mount Adjustable Tilt). Although it says up to 39 inch, the TV is light and it works great See photo below.

Also put a 24 inch TV - DVD combo in the bedroom, see additional photos..

Hi DMACALLI,

Thanks for sharing these photos. Do you mind if I ask how you went about mounting the TV in the bedroom so that the doors still close? Also, I'm not sure about your model, but in mine, they use crappy A/V connections rather than HDMI. I am able to rig my TV by just using the yellow video connection but was hoping to do something of better quality like HDMI. Any input or thoughts on that? Also considering replacing the main head unit with something slightly more modern and something that will allow blue ray playback.
