TV

Hi all,

We are new to this site and camping as well. Just bought our first grey wolf 26dbh. Now ours doesn't come with a tv so we are going to just get one. We don't get the trailer for a week but want to check out the deals. Anyone know what size TV this unit will take?

Thanks so much in advance

Holmes42,

Congratulations on your new purchase! We received our 26dbh last month and have really enjoyed it so far. We purchased a 32 inch tv and it seems to be just the right size for us. I've included a link below.

Insignia 32" Class 3112" Diag. LED 1080p HDTV Black NS-32D511NA15 - Best Buy

I know in our 304BS the wall is 25" high, the pedestal that the TV sits on (if you don't use the wall mount) is 42" wide and 8" deep. Can't use the wall mount with a TV much bigger than 24" or else it hits the ceiling when you try to hook it on. We have a 40" TV there and its a perfect fit. Covers most of the wall and you can't see the rock much, but i'd rather see the larger screen on those rainy days

We have the same rig and have been using our 37" LED from our bedroom. We don't intend to hang it up or purchase a dedicated one so it just sits on it's pedestal on the mantel very nicely. Unfortunately, I do not have a picture of it but can get one this weekend.

Holmes42,

Unfortunately I don't have a picture to post but I agree with what BigPatCal and Driftinby all had to say.

We didn't hang ours either as the wall mount is pretty much useless!

A 37 inch TV would fit just fine but just make sure the base isn't to much wider than 8 inches. We decided to go with the 32 for now because of price and the option to move it to the bedroom side in the future.

This weekends struggle is going to be getting the my direcTV to work

The one thing that I don't like is if you mount it on the back of that wall (int the bedroom) you cant slide the doors open all the way without bashing the TV. You have to take it off first. When I bought the camper it did say TV MOUNT backer on the ceiling, but I assume that's for the wall right under it. Kind of wanted to put mount on the ceiling out of the way but it didn't feel like there was anything up there behind the outer surface. Anyone have a solution for that bedroom wall?

So would a 32" work? Mounting on the wall? Or putting it on the mantle? How do you secure it on the mantle?

You will have to put that on the mantle. You can use a strap if needed. I just leave it free standing and take it off when i tow.

I just asked the same thing in another thread about not being able to slide the doors all the way open with a TV mount on the wall. If you need a TV in the master, it is intended to be hung from the ceiling using a ceiling mount like this-

Unlike the interior walls, you can actually find a stud in the form of a rafter to mount to in the ceiling but be careful, they use 2"x2" in the construction of these things which won't take much for a lag bolt to split. I would use screws with the intention of never traveling with the TV mounted. YMMV.

Yes, 32" would work. Compared to our 37", I don't think you could go much bigger than a 40" perhaps a 42" TV therefore, you should be good with anything smaller. You won't be able to use the supplied plastic wall mount which is for smaller TV's... the supplied mount is actually for computer monitors and I suspect smaller TV's. Either way, you would not want to travel with it hanging on the way or sitting on the mantel. We simply lay our TV face down on the master bed when we travel.
