Yes, you're right. I was reading too fast. Duh. Like you, I want to know where the 6 inch was bought. I installed a 5 inch but that extra inch would help. Our mat is a tight fit.

Most home building supply stores sell 6" x 6" vinyl fence post. I put one on my previous camper because the 5" round one was just a bit too tight for my sewer hose. You can also buy the square caps for each end. Use screws to fix one cap on one end then use small hinges and a small hasp on the other end to access sewer hose. It seems there is a post on this forum somewhere that someone did this.

I used the 5" x 5" and a through search of the Home Depot web site only turns ups 4" and 5" PVC fence posts. I did find these: Crossover 6 in. x 6 in. x 54 in. Post Sleeve which are just under 6" square but only 54" long.

This info will help all of us give you a better answer to your question.
Found this online:

How much does a 60 inch TV weigh?
For example, your standard 32" flat-screen LCD TV will weigh between 25-30 pounds on average, while a much larger 60" flat-screen LED TV can be much heavier, sometimes weighing upwards of 75-100 pounds. Meanwhile, a large flat-screen projection TV can weigh as much as 200 pounds.

I would not attempt this mod without engineering help from the manufacturer (and good luck with that )

Ahh. I looked hard for a 6 inch before I gave in and bought a 5 inch. It's OK but could really use a 6 inch. Think the next one I will do a round one.

Thanks.
