has anyone used any type of bracket to mount you tv?.....so far I've just set mine on a small folding table at rear of trailer....gonna buy a tv to leave in camper after they go on sale end of year.....want to mount it so it can be seen from murphy bed.....I don't like when tv/cable recepts are located.....is that wall able to support weight of tv/bracket?
This is not a great photo but it is what I did to mine.
I built the cabinet and on the rear I installed a piece of dexion angle inside the cabinet. Look cloely & I think you may see it. I attached a piece of wafer board with aluminum sheet on either side for strength.
I then attached a swivel wall mount on the aft side of the cabinet. It is pretty sturdy. The TV is a 24 in with built in DVD.
I plan to upgrade to a 32 in at least.
It is a long way from the bed to the TV for my old eyes & ears...lol
I did route a white coax over the top near where the ceiling meets the aluminum on top. Look closely & you can see it.
I will add that I am going to install another receptical for my dish cable as DISH won't work thru the units coax
Here is a photo of the cabinet before I added the TV mt.
Also the over the door catch all & the cover for the cooktop to give me more counter space. The underside photo of the cover shows what keeps it in place while traveling.
How short are your lag bolts? Did you bolt through your trailer wall exterior? I understand our walls are 3/4in correct? I want to mount a tv also in my WnP but I don't want to bolt through the exterior wall.
I believe I used 1 in. length. My cabinet was 1/2 (which is really just under 1/2) I DID NOT go thru the wall. So far there are no problems with pulling out,etc.
I didn't want to put any more than 1/2 in. into the wall itself.
