TV Mounting

Has anyone ever mounted a TV on the Interior of one of these Salem TTs? I'm a first time RV'er so I don't know what I don't know.

Are there studs in the exterior walls like normal house construction? If so, how thick are the exterior walls?

I'm looking to mount a small 20" or smaller TV on the opposite wall from the door above the window.

Any thoughts?

I guess this is a dumb question.

Buy an electronic stud finder at Lowes (around $15-$20).
See if you can find studs, that should answer your question.

TV install

I have a new Salem Cruise Lite slightly larger model 262bhxl. This is actually set up for TV with CD/DVD player. The wall between the living area and front queen actually swivels to watch from either side. Anyway, put a wall bracket in and installed 32 inch flatscreen for those evenings and rainy days. I don't leave it handing when travelling though.
On any install not set up for a tv you will need to chase down wiring so it could be a bit of hassle. probably could get a schematic from the manufacturing to show where wiring currently is located. good luck.

I have a 2016 21RBS. The sales guy told me that there is plywood behind the wall material. There is a space of about 1 1/2 inches between the wall space where the TV is set up to go, and the bathroom wall. I bought a TV wall mount (light weight for RV use) and used several 3/4 wood screws. I just watched from the backside (bathroom) to make sure nothing was coming through. I hung a 32" Vizio LED HDTV and I also put up an earthquake type strap that I secure the TV against the wall while traveling. So far, no problems.
