You definitely want to make sure you are attaching the mount to something solid. Like szabla says, there are only two screws (although heavy duty) that hold these mounts in place. If the backing material is wimpy and the mount isn't tightened down really well, the mount can wobble and the screws can strip out of their holes and the results won't be pretty.
For us, the beauty of this mount is its clean look, size, and ease of use. When not it use it looks much like an outlet cover. If we are traveling rough forest service roads and know things are going to get bounced around pretty good, I'll take a few seconds (Literally) to disengage the TV's and lay them on the beds. It's so simple. We constantly snag our bedroom TV and attach it to the external mount to enjoy a game or movie outside under the canopy. It's a quick and simple transfer.
