If they made a model specific section for one they would have to do it for all and that my friend would be a loooooong loooooong list .

I think your stuck in the general wildwood section

I here ya but I figure people can find the thread if they search for the model so what the heck. Nice fifth wheel, one of those will probably be our next RV. I'm getting a diesel pickup when the Tahoe dies. Any recommendations on diesels?

Just checked them out. Pretty sweet, the outside slide out TV mount is just sick! I love the outdoor kitchens too. We looked at a TT with one but I've got 3 girls so I needed a triple bunker and it was not an option. This is our first TT and we're enjoying it. Going to 4 NASCAR races this season, first on is this weekend in Martinsville, VA.

We bought one six weeks ago but we don't have it yet...had to order. Fell in love with it at a rv show. Some delay with a steel shortage or something is setting back the delivery date till the last week of April. Sucks but I guess worth the wait!

@jking I think you will enjoy it. We have 3 girls and it is a lot of fun for the whole family. Very easy to pull and maneuver and nice privacy up front for mom and dad. A 26 inch flat screen fits perfect in the swivel. Our first RV but seems to have decent build quality for a reasonable price. Any questions about it?

What kind of mount did you get for your tv and can you run the tv through the surround sound

I used a mounting plate without a swing arm for the TV. First I mounted a small plywood square to the swivel about 8x8 inches with multiple wood screws because the swivel is only fiberboard and the mount only uses 4 screws. I then attached the mount to the plywood and it is sturdy. I got a 2 piece mount where one piece stays attached to the TV and the other to the swivel and when I set up, I just hang the Tv on the mount. Yes you can run the TV through the surround. Simply look at the audio out adapter on your Tv, usually an RCA type of plug and go to radio shack or best buy to get an adapter cable that has the Tv style adapter on one end and a standard stereo adapter on the other to plug into the built in music system(this is like the plug for Walkman headphones and there is a port for it on the front of the entertainment unit below the TV). This is nice also because if you have satellite, you can tune to a music channel and turn the outside speakers on to have music outside the RV when grilling, etc. I will try to post some pics for you to see the setup.

Do you have any issues pulling it with your Tahoe?
