We have not done it - but my 10 year old thinks that would be a great idea.

I don't know if there is much of anything solid to mount to on the wall between the bunk and bathroom. It's not like some tt bedrooms where they have a sticker on the wall telling you where it is reinforced to mount a bracket.

I would think the 2 options are a stand to just let it sit on the shelf and maybe secure the base, or, use an adjustable mount with a swing arm and go through the side of the bathroom wardrobe. If you did that you could even use bolts long enough to put small piece of 1X lumber or something similar inside the wardrobe to strengthen the whole thing. With that system you could swing / swivel the tv out to whatever angle you wanted for viewing, then fold it in flat before folding up the bunk.

That's a great idea, going through the bathroom closet. Thanks for your input. How do you like your roo?

Our 10 year old son uses the rear bunk as his bedroom. We mounted a small bookcase in the area adjacent to the bathroom wall and fastened it in place with screws going from the inside of the bathroom closet to the side of the bookcase. This now gives him a place to place his television and x-box on long trips. The additional shelves also give him a place for chargers, books or any other things he wants to bring along.

When we travel we use two pillows to sandwich the television between them on the shelf. Since the television is not mounted to a wall it make it easier to return to house once we return.

Very pleased - a lot more features than our popup, but after 13 years with it, we still liked the tent ends. The Roo seems to be one of the best expandables out there. And this floorplan was perfect for us. Huge kitchen and lots of storage (and a bathroom!! ).

And our favorite places to camp are state parks in the Adirondack Mountains. The sites have no hookups and are spaced very far apart, but a lot of them are quite small. So with the Roo we can still squeeze in to most of the prime lake front sites. But the Roo is great for stops at RV parks and traveling on long trips too.

Not looking forward to putting it up for the winter.

In the ADK's we really like Moffitt Beach and Lewey Lake, but we also go to Golden Beach, 8th Lake, Fish Creek/Rollins Pond regularly. Plus we are still have some we haven't been to - so many choices... For private campgrounds the only two we hit regularly are the Old Forge Camping Resort (3X this year May, July, Oct), and the Lake Placid KOA when we get that far north.

We also really like Watkins Glenn SP and Sampson SP in the finger lakes, Chenango Valley, and then Cedar Point SP in the 1,000 Islands (but you have to get in the first row of sites right on the St. Lawrence Seaway).

One of the few perks of living in NY is the SP system - at $20 to $25 per night, there are lots of great places to go.

We like both - but you can't beat the electric loop at the SP. You can walk the gorge into town, and then head to the wineries with the $$ you saved from not staying at the KOA. But the indoor pool at the KOA is nice in the cooler weather. Either way - great place to visit.
