TV installation in a Wolf pup 16bhs

We just purchased our 2019 Wolf Pup 16bhs and I was looking for ideas where to place the TV at and what size was used. Pics would be great if possible. Thank you all in advance

I bought an articulated arm mount and mounted that to the overhead kitchen cabinet side where all the Television connections and light/Awning switches are. I hade to Velcro mount a power strip there, also. Stupid one not there. I did put a reinforcing 2x2 inside the cabinet for the mount. I'll try to post pics later.
All said and done, what I thought was a good place for a TV was dumb. People hit their head on it too often. I thought I could swing it round to watch from the bunks or the dinette but it barely tilts enough to get a decent picture from the LED washout when seated at the dinette on the master bed.
Looking back, I think the best place is the sidewall above the foot of the master bed with with a decent tilting wall mount. Yes, this would require finding the studs AND running cables over the door but no more head bashing.
This is a 19" that was available on closeout, mail order only, from WalMart.
If you search the thread, what did you do to your RV (or trailer) today for my replies, I have all my mods to my 16BHS listed there with several pictures.

The correct name of the thread is "what did you do to your camper today".
One of the cables bundled is an HDMI to connect to the DVD player I have to set on the counter. Some Furrion radios have a cd/DVD player built in, mine does not ;(

The wall by the door is the place that I have seen one mounted. That’s probably where I will do it, there is a stud right in the middle. Thank you for the pictures, I do like how it is in the middle of the RV and can be moved around to see from all angles

Thanks K2Kevin, seeing yours gave me the idea to do it. Do you know if the bracing on the wall is a 2x4 or 2x2?
And if it is a 2x4 is it 4 or 2 inches flat?

I think studs are 2x4 "flat". Its very obvious where the stud is (its pretty centered above the window), pushing or tapping on the wall, you'll feel it. Just watch the length of the mounting screws.

Getting a TV with a larger viewing angle helps as well. Some very cheap TVs can be nice when directly in front of screen, but off angle get completely washed out.

We have an 18TO which has the mount space on the back wall but the 16BHS has the bathroom and the bunks there. From the 16BHS model I have seen others swing mount near the door over the controls which K2Kevin pictured excellently.

I didn't go that route in the 18to because I have found I turn the corner and almost clip my face on the edge- its at a perfect height at 5'5 to my nose. Maybe a tv would actually help with that! ! Also our space there had a few more controls with the slide out and that is where our audio equipment is kept.

The 18TO has similar space by the window/bed area - on the door side- and I put a small shelf with a bumper on the front to set a tablet/ipad as a secondary option. Sorry no picture to display but it is to the left of the window right before the curve of the front!

Went camping after the television was moved. SWMBO liked it in the new location and not having it stick out into the center space, blocking the awning and outside light switches. With the articulated arm, it provided a good view from the bed and dinette. I used command hooks for wire routing & the DVD player's HDMI cable is coiled in the corner with Velcro. Velcro command strips hold the power strip. Had to route power from by the stovetop. Turns out I have a total of three factory power outlets. One by the stovetop, one at the corner of the bed by the bench seat, for one on each side, and a hidden one the water pump plugs into under the bed.
