Mounting TV on wall in RV

We have a 2011 25RL FR Wildcat fifthwheel and would like to mount a 26" flatscreen TV on the short wall in the bedroom (on the other side of that wall is where the toilet is located). The wall seems a bit thin/flimsy and we don't know if it will hold the weight of the TV plus the fixture.

Any suggestions?

If you can push in on the wall and it flexes, you'll have to install a backer board to support the weight of the television.

Check out this post with pics of a TV mounted to a flimsy wall. It ain't purdy, but it works.

I am sure there is a stud in that wall, mount it there. I did 6 years ago, hasn't moved!

In my camper there are wood studs and I found one. I mounted a 20" flate screen on the wall and it stayed even while towing. Pre drill the holes first before trying to run the mounting hardwear into the stud, and if you can't find the stud by hand then use a stud finder to find the center of the stud.

not sure if anyone can answer me but i just bought a 2011 Wildcat 29RLBS and the dealer said that this model did not come with a TV something just does not seem right with that since every other unit came with a TV thanks

That was a model that tvs were an option. Wildcat now has made them an option package that virtually makes it standard at this point. If your dealer invoice shows a tv then you would have seen a line item charge therefore you should get a tv. If not the dealer didn't order it with the unit and no tv would have come with it. Wildcat service would be happy to help you if your looking for a flat screen tv. Jensen flat screens made for traveling and RVs is what we have gone to recently. 574 206 7600

Safe travels,
Team Wildcat
