How to mount TV in 262BHXL

I bought a 32" cheapo TV and I want to mount it where the TV goes. Thing is, I want a sturdy mount, but I want to be able to remove it easily while in transit, or take it in the house, our use it in the other side (in the bedroom of the camper).

Best idea I've come up with is to rest it on the bottom of the cabinet and put Velcro on the back. That way it is strongly supported vertically, will not fall out, and will be ready to remove and/or relocate.

I might still need to add a piece of wood at the bottom and maybe at the back to give room for cables and cords.

Is anyone doing this, or does anyone have suggestions?

For future reference, this works well. I used a board on the bottom so that the TV can use its normal stand. The board has a profile that matches the little lip at the bottom of the shelf. I have some small blocks of wood in the back with velcro that hold the TV to the wall. It is stable just sitting there on its own, but it would not take much to make it tip out. The velcro is just to make sure it stays put until I want to remove it for transport, or to move it over to the bedroom side.

I'm thinking of getting rid of the velcro and just mounting the board somehow to the bottom shelf. Then the TV will be easy to just lift out of the hole when I want to move it.

Only thing left is to finish the board at the bottom and figure out how to secure it to the shelf.

I went to Walmart and got a wall bracket. Easy install on this same trailer as you can get to both sides of the panel. Took about 15 minutes. the bracket is designed so I can remove the 32 inch flatscreen easily when travelling. It allows tilt and swivel for better viewing.

I finished the piece of wood so it is just a little larger than the TV's stand, and rounded it off. It looks good. All I had to do to the camper was drill a small hole at the top of the wood piece and put a dowel into it. That way the wood and TV are stable. When we are transporting the camper, I just lift the TV, disconnect it, and put it on the bed. The dowel hole goes all the way through, so I can use the TV on either side of the wall in the same way. Or I can just take it inside the house. I think I might use it as a computer monitor when we are not traveling.
