Flat Screen in Basement of a 5er

Has anyone added a flatscreen in the basement of a 5er and how big was the television and how did you do it? Stationary or swingout?

I really like this. Not sure how I could make it work with mine. I also like the basement idea (Where all my cable hookups are) but I hate keeping the basement open with all my junk in view.

Tv flips down then slides into cubby.
Can't use a big tv for current slider since it doesn't roll out far enough for a big tv to clear camper side to tilt back up.
There was a cable coax fitting and rca plug already in cubby.

Seriously considering just making a bracket to fit the bbq rail and hanging it on that. Basement is not covered by awning so having it in the basement would create a problem when raining. Can run a cable along the frame to the bbq rail pretty easily.

Good idea.
Make sure you use an extension on the bottom of bracket with a bumper on it to support the weight such as the rvq grill mount.
But I m sure you've already thought of that and your out in the shop building it already.

I have the 365 saq. I went to best buy and got a full motion tv bracket that extends. I bought a 32 inch tv/DVD all in one from SAMs. I had my metal guy fabricate a post that hooks from the frame of the rv to the floor. It's really nice and easy stays hooked up and pulls in and out when I want it and loading and unloading it swings out of the way. I'll try to post a picture in the next day

Have to get approval from TOWTA to purchase tv first. Then the fabrication will start.
