I have a questions for all of you smart folks that have already done this, we just picked up our new 2016 26DBH yesterday and the plastic mount for the TV was not installed. Was going to have the dealer install, but ran out of time. They did give me a swivel mount that tilts similar to the one referenced from Bestbuy. My question is, do you mount it to the faux rock wall or take the rock wall off and mount it to the panel behind. We have the sliding wood doors in the front bedroom and the wall behind the faux rock wall seems pretty thin, it does however seem to have a stud like board or something back there. Just wondering how you folks worked it and what kind of hardware you used. I do have a 32" TV to put there. Thanks in advance.

I bolted my mount onto the rock wall. It's plastic but there's wood behind it for mounting. I tried to use as many preexisting holes as I could. The factory mount was on top of the rock wall.

Thanks for the help, figured out there is a backer behind the faux rock wall. Got everything all snug in there and ready to roll. Again thanks for the insight.

It is crazy how different ours cabinet area is laid out than yours in the pic. No faux stone, we have more open cabinets up top and bellow, no doors. We also have a curtain between the master bedroom and main area.

Amazing what a difference 2 years make. The sliding doors are so nice for the master. That is one of the main reasons why I purchased this model.

Depending on how they are mounted the curtain worked well for us, I have the bed pushed to the wall, where I assume the doors would hang. I am 6'3" so the extra length helped.. But I did think if adding accordion doors to keep my length.

Good Point! I was about to install the V-mount plate (not sure why FR did not install it) to the faux rock wall but thought I should read up first. I was thinking I would mount it a little high so I could slide my Blu-Ray underneath but I now see that would have been a terrible mistake. I would just buy a better mount but I want it to match the factory installed mount on the outside of the trailer.
