Tv size

Hello there. We have a 2018 grey wolf Forest River 29 BHS. We are looking to put a TV inside, can you please make a suggestion on the best size of TV to mount, I'm not able to measure at this time as our trailer is still in storage. Thank you for your help

Kaiserface, I have a Vibe 28rl that is close in size to yours, don't know where you want the TV but mine came with a 50inch in the main living and I put a 43inch tlc roku in the bedroom and a outside mount also for this TV on the right slide, it weighs 16lbs cost 250 at Costco works great

Thank you for that here is a pic of the wall it would be mounted too. Trying to figure out the proper TV size is difficult. This picture is from Google

If this is your TT, the mounting location and viewing angle would be a consideration. Too large and it might be difficult to see from the dinette. With some TVs, they are harder to view from a side angle. For viewing from just the dinette a 32" should fine. That's what we have for about the same distance away. Next size up might be nice but may depend on the opening size at the "entertainment center". I would use a good articulating mount and one that locks into place.

I just mounted a 40" samsung in that location last week. There is enough space some of the 43" will fit you just need to look at the mounted dimensions instead of the stand up dimensions. I used a stationary mount for mine with 6 lags into the backer. It is solid. I had to use a stationary mount like that due to the tv mounting holes being in the upper third of the tv and the backer being centered on that wall. The mount allowed for about a 5 inch rise in height adjustment otherwise I would have went locking articulating.

I suggest you look at the tv you decide on in person and from the viewing angle you plan to view it in your RV. Some of the lower priced tvs have a very poor to useless picture at a sharp viewing angle.
