Question Bed Room TV Mount Suggestions

It seems that the wall structure in our tt has only a single horizontal "stud" - I'm hoping it's 1x3.... but nothing vertical. Most tv mounts are designed for a vertical stud...anyone find one that works? I could use shorter lag bolts and some washers as spacers to ensure a good fixture to wall mount, but still, it would be. . . delicate.

I pushed in the wall to see if there was anything solid behind the wall where the TV hookup is in the bedroom. I found about a 5" solid area. I drilled with a very small drill to see and then drilled with the size I needed to screw in the mount. I ordered the L&W type mount Kebloc from L&W and a swivel mount. cost 89.00 shipped. I plan to swap out the regular mount on the Jensen in the living room with the swivel and put the Jenson mount on the TV for the bedroom. The mount in the bedroom feels really solid after I mounted the mount. hope this helps you out. I will try and get a picture of it mounted in the bedroom.

Bed Room TV Mount Suggestions

If your putting bigger than 16 inch tv you can cut piece of plywood to span the two studs and screw your tv mount to plywood. Cut plywood so it would be hid behind tv.

Here are the pictures, sorry they are sideways first time attaching photos. I ordered the one from L&W Engineering, wanted the same one as outside so I can transfer the bedroom TV to outside as needed.

I'm doing this exact project this weekend. I also purchased the L&W mount and the swivel TV bracket. Real nice setup.

I ordered a few blocks and an extra tv bracket. We now have them in the travel trailer bedroom, our home outside patio. Very handy mounts!

I am sorry guys. L&W mounts suck. I get to camp ground and my TV is on the floor. The factory mounted 2 screws ripped out of the wall with the L&W mount.
I looked at my sons trailer and they have at least 9 screws holding the mount on his, including a strap to help reinforce it to the wall while traveling.
These may work if you have a metal plate on both sides of the wall with lag bolts.
Don't rely on wood screws alone.
