Forgive me for getting all nostalgic, but this thread reminds me of the years we towed our Starcraft Pop-Up Trailer up into the High Sierra Nevada Mountains to places like Lone Pine, and Convict Lake, and Mammoth Mountain,and especially Red's Meadow. We had a 9-inch, 12-volt TV/VHS Player mounted on a box between the front seats of our Chevy Van. While I drove, my wife would play a variety of VHS educational tapes for our two young daughters sitting in the back seats. Meanwhile, our 75-pound Yellow Labrador slept on the couch/hide-a-bed in the back of the van. Memories like that are still clear in my mind after more than 40 years. God bless all of you who are building similar memories with your families.

I know...

I'm shedding tears remembering dragging my old 20" tube TV that weighed around 40 pounds through that camper door from the house and back all of those years.

Speaking of back...I think my back still hurts from that!

Just because someone has been "doing it for years with no problems" doesn't mean you should!

I have two of them and have had them for five years in two different campers.

Love them and no straps needed!

That looks great! In our previous camper I used a strap to secure the TV fully retracted while traveling.

Never had a problem with it, this looks even easier.

This is what I did. I didn't need the overhead space being a weekend camper, so I put the TV up where the door went. I put it on an extending swiveling arm like you are talking about. To keep it put, I screwed in the curtain tie doodads, then got a flat bungee cord from a camping place (Camping World I think). It works great. Have never had an issue with it.

I moved the 40" outside TV into the garage on our Spartan300 4012. Between the side wall and the sliding glass door is only about 15" of wall space with the TV mount backer. I couldn't attach the TV or straps to the glass of the door, so I had to get a cantilever mount and detach the TV when we move. The TV only weighs 18 lbs, but I was afraid the bouncing would pull the mount from the wall. There is plenty of room between the upper bed and the benches when they are in the up position so I strap the TV flat on the lower benches/bed when underway. It is a bit of a hassle, but the upside is I now have some storage space for the folding chairs, the small table and a few other small outside things we carry.
