How did you get the boards to match the wall paneling? looks good. Im interested in doing this myself if you dont mind helping me out on how to.

Did you mount on the wall or the cabinet? Does that location allow it to swivel to been seen from the bunks and your bed?

Wish I'd done some pics but its too late now. A very simple install though. I got this mount from Walmart. Looks like its no longer available but similar ones are out there. I removed the microwave, drilled holes in the side of the cabinet and used large washers on the inside to assure the bolts wouldn't pull through. One year and many miles later i have no issues at all. The TV folds flat against the outside wall and I use a cushion between the wall and TV to assure there is no damage from vibration during transport.

I'm doing this same install. So by mounting to through the cabinet it's strong enough to hold the TV?

How did you hang the medicine cabinet and coat rack on the wall? I didn't think there were studs in these?

Yes, no issues for me. The TV is swiveled toward the outside wall and fastened back with an elastic strap that has Velcro on the ends when traveling. I used large washers inside the cabinet to distribute the load, what little there is. I wouldn't mount a large TV like this but mine is so lightweight and the upper cabinet is designed to support the fairly heavy microwave and whatever you can store above the stove. I only put lightweight items above the burners and have no concerns at all.

What size TV did you use? I've got a 20" but would like to go to a 24" if possible.

Mine is a 20" but if I wanted a 24" I'd weigh them or look at the manufacturer's specs cause the weight difference may be minor.

I already have the cable hookups wired to the spot above the counter. So it would be easier to install close to that I think.
