LCD TV Mount

I have a Cherokee Lite 28A+ TT. I want to mount a 19 inch LCD TV in it. under my cabinet in the kitchen. Any tips or items I should consider? Will a standard LCD mount for home work just fine?

Any information you have would be great.

Thanks,
Chris

Make sure you find a stud.

I'm thinking that I want to do the same thing. My plan was to remove the TV antena plate to try to locate a stud. There are enough plates in that area that you could remove to locate a stud. Let me knw how it works out. A picture would be nice. I have a 20" LCD ready and waiting.

I was able to press on the wall and feel the "soft and hard" spots to
find a stud.
In my trailer, the interior wall studs are wood.
I used a pair of wood screws of the appropriate size and drilled a small
pilot hole to be sure I had actually hit the stud. I used screws long enough
for full depth in the thin stud.

It feels pretty firm to me but I've also added a pair of large cup hooks
on either side of the TV so I can use a bungee cord to hold it firmly
against the wall when we are traveling. I don't think you'd want the TV
to accidentally swing out on the arm while you were driving. A big
bump at that time might pull it off the wall!
