TV in Bedroom?

I'm looking at mounting a 24" TV in the bedroom of our 8280. Does anyone currently have atv already installed? If so, can you send, or post, pics of the bracket you used? Also, wondering what kind of mounting acres screws this would require?
Thx,

Guzzel

I also have the 8280ws with a 24" in the bedroom. I used a tilt mount that I picked up at Walmart. I used lag screws with several washers on each. Did not want them going through the thin wall. I am sure you can get shorter lag screws but I used what I had. Will send pics shortly.

Thx for the reply. What size lags did you use? My worry, like yours, is punching thru the bathroom wall. They seem somewhat thin. Also, is your TV all the way against the side wall?

Don't remember the size. You can tell if it will go through or not since you can see the thickness of the wall.

I left a 1/4" gap between the TV & the wall.

I put one in on a 27vrl. Outside the coach is a tv bracket with two keystone holes. In order to mount the tv outside( if I ever wanted to) I contacted FR customer service with the year, model # and S/N of the TT. The sent the exact bracket that did the job. I think it was $106.( kinda pricy, but it works ) I bought a 24" RCA led, 1080p with built in DVD at Sears for about $200. I had to spot respot 2 of the attaching holes to the TV and come up with 4-4 mm screws, Knowing the walls arent that thick I used 6 #14 x 1" sheet metal screws. I could tell when I drilled through the outer panel, that there was a tougher material underneath. Had a piece of masking tape on the drill so I didn't drill too far. Measure 2x drill once!

Let us know how you get on.
I'm in the exact same situation. Wanting to install a TV in the bedroom of our new 8281WS.
We don't have the extra door into the bathroom, and our TV mount point is right behind the shower

We had our dealer install a TV mount as part of our deal that locks for travel and is able to be pulled out and turned for viewing . Before they installed it there was a sticker on the wall telling where to put the blocking was in the wall .

I ordered the MorRyde TV1025H mount from Amazon, for a 22" TV/DVD Combo I already had (from using in our old PUP)
Going to mount it where the sticker is, just hoping the included screws aren't too long for the wall.

I used a pull out swivel mount and used webbing and buckles attached to the wall to secure it for transport. We use bubble wrap under the straps to prevent chaffing. This setup has worked well for 3 years.
