TV mount point in 243 RBS

As mentioned in my new members post, I'll be getting a Surveyor 243 RBS Real Soon Now (tm). Is there a location in the bedroom to install an LCD TV mount?

There should be backing on the center of the entertainment center wall for a tv mount. Looking at structure between the pocket doors, there is some plywood that can be used as a backer to put screws into.

You must watch that you don't interfere with the "Pocket Doors" area! In some TT they had Hinged doors and that Entertainment Wall for the TV "Turned/Rotated so 1 TV could be used in Bedroom or Living room! Youroo!!

That's what I'm trying to say. If you get a TV mount, use the top and bottom center holes only and mount it directly below the cable and power outlet. pocket doors (pushed in the wall) still leave an area in the centerline of the wall at least a few inches wide.

Yes, there is space for a TV. Mine also has an outlet and cable connection, same wall as pocket doors.

Mount directly under that.

nmccoy, our 243 RBS is in the process of being built. We expect to take delivery the beginning of March give or take a couple of weeks.

That was the pre-2014 240 RBS. It had accordion doors to the bedroom back then. I wish they still had that feature.

We have a 243RBS and I want to put a tv in the bedroom as well. Any suggestions on a mount and tv size that you used? Pictures would be great.
