Mounting Small TV

Just picked up my 5th wheel Flagstaff 8524RLS and would like to mount a small 19inch LCD in the bedroom. The wall where the shelf is now located does not appear to have any interior support to screw a bracket into. Anyone have any thoughts or ideas

If you have the useless TV shelf that we have, which just gets in the way even when folded then those brackets holding that shelf must be screwed into something reasonably strong. If we are talking the same thing then cannot your LCD brackets be screwed into the same place as the shelf brackets?

I mounted my 19" flat screen to the wall on a universal swing arm using three, 5/8 diameter by 1 inch long lag bolts and have towed over 1400 miles without even a hint of it coming loose. Just be carefull not to use too long of bolts cause the wall is not very thick at all.

Then lag bolts it is. I was thinking that direction but wasn't sure if the panneling would hold up. Thanks for the reply this forum is worth it's weight in gold.

The paneling alone will not safely support the bracket. You need to hit framing behind the panel. If you cannot hit solid wood at the location you want you might install a horizontal board between two studs on top of the paneling. Make the board wide enough to accommodate the bracket.
