Led tv mount

I have been searching for LED TV mounts and wanted to get some opinions as there are not a lot or reviews for TT.

I have a 2015 wildwood xlite with the entertainment center, and a 32" Samsung led tv, I would like to have an articulating mount so that we could extent and rotate in order to have a better view on the couch.

What are se decent priced options for this and what did size screws did you use to mount into the tv backer. (The other side of entertainment center is the tv mount area for the bedroom.

Thank you for the assistance

I used this one to support a 24" LED. I through bolted it to the end of my cabinet and added reinforcing.
Amazon.com: VideoSecu Articulating Arm Tilting TV Wall Mount for Seiki 15" 19" 20" 21" 22" 24" SC151FS SC191FS SE20HS02 LC22G82/SC211FS SC241FS/LC24G82 SE24FY10 TV 3KX: Electronics
This is the second one of this arm I purchased.
They make similar products for your 32"

I'd buy two and thru bolt them together using some washers to reinforce the bolt heads. I used the bolts used to install toilet partitions in public restrooms. We have a division in our company that sells them. See my "Wolf Pup Mods" post I put up a few days ago. I should mention that I installed the TV and arm and then drove from Baton Rouge to Houston and back on I-10. Not exactly the smoothest of roads. Held up fine over the 700+miles.

X2 on the first link above. I have a few of these that I used in my camper and in the house. The price is right too. The only think is you'll want to reinforce whatever it is you screw into. In my case I took the cabinet apart and put in a 2X4 brace. I think I even posted a photo of it somewhere in this forum too.

I also am looking to hang a TV. I want to mount it in the bedroom under the power and cable outlets. Anyone know where i could find the mounting location on line. They used to put a sticker that said mount TV here, There was one in the living area but not the bedroom.
Thanks
Mike

In my bedroom the sticker is located about 6" above the plates. I still have the sticker that say's mount here on the wall. I'm guessing but I would say it is above not below. I think it was for a 32" option which we never got. You can push on those thin walls and find it. The wall board is less then 1/8' thick. You can cut it with a box knife. GREAT wall HA!

It should be a piece of wood between the studs. The cheap walls they put in couldn't hold a TV even with sinkers installed. I was shocked when I had to trim a 1/8" off the top of my slide and only needed a box cutter.....

I poked around on my wall too to put the mount up and in the end decided not to. I was going to hang a brace on the outside of the wall between the two mini studs and then screw into that. What I'm going to do instead is build a new cabinet there (not sure why FR didn't put a tall wardrobe in that area in my 25RR like the 19RR had). My trailer lacks decent storage space for typical living conditions IMHO. So I'm going to build one between the window and the door and mount the TV on the side of that. I think it'll work good.

We have the over cab entertainment center. We too want to swivel the TV to view from couch. At the dealer, they were going to put the mount on the back of the TV. Once the TV was taken out, they was a huge hole, leading to the front of the cab! No wall! So did not mount on swivel, would have been extensive project to put support in to reinforce! Wish that was not the case.
