Wink TV Mount on Wall

I have a 2016 261BHXL, and want to install a TV bracket on wall behind the dinette.

Is there anyone that has installed a TV bracket? I have a 22" flat panel TV that I want to hang on the wall. It is a fixed bracket, not a swivel.

Also, do you know if the studs are metal or wood inside the wall?

Hi azdesert.... I mounted my 32" today. What I did, was cut a piece of 3/4" plywood, 5" x 6". I screwed this to the wall in the dinette. If you look where the bunk bed frame is for the top bunk, it runs through the wall of the dinenette. I guessed that it is 2" wide.... My bracket was 5" high so I screwed the plywood so it was centered along the bunk frame, 4, 3" screws. My TV is 32" and the "V" mount I bought holds it no problem. I'm pretty sure that you could mount a 36" TV this way with no problems. Of course I take it down for travel, but this seems to be the easiest and most secure way I found. I will paint it brown to match. If you want a picture of the bracket install let me know.

Same question as I have

I am mounting a flat screen TV bracket in the bedroom of a Windjammer and have the same question basically. The area had a sticker on it telling me this is where to mount the TV, but I don't see anything that tells me what type fasteners to use. The wall has something very solid behind the paneling, plywood I suspect, so I am thinking a course thread wood screw? Or should I use a molly type insert or plastic tap in insert with a screw? I would really rather not open the door to find the TV on the floor Anyone have a suggestion? Oh, on this forum I know there are suggestions, but one's that have worked successfully!

D B Travelers, I mounted a 24" flat panel in the front bedroom of our Crusader 296BHS using course wood screws to mount the bracket. I know its not the best thing but we leave the tv mounted more than we take it down and have not had any trouble. There was a sticker on the wall saying mount tv here.

Traveling with the TV

I have a call into the Service Manager at a local RV dealership asking which fastener to use. I'll post it as soon as I get an answer. Mike - The TV is a 23" flat screen and I purposefully bought a mount that locks back against the wall so I don't have to remove it each time. The swivel goes back and locks the TV in a centered position so I think it will be okay. the TV will stay in the TT from now on, and I really don't want to have to take it off and put it back as we travel this summer. The 32" in the living room stays mounted and it is just on a french cleat (of sorts). I may just try the course screws and keep an eye on it. Thanks everyone for the feedback.
