Outdoor TV

I would like to add an outdoor TV to our 2011 Surveyor SP260. I did a quick search of the forums and didn't see a whole lot of info. One good thread on a mounted rail and fabricated bracket. Since fabrication is not really in my wheelhouse I am hoping to find a small off the shelf low profile bracket similar to what comes on some of the newer trailers. I think the easiest is just to mount a bracket to the wall below the dinette window. Given the location I could likely put a backer board inside the trailer for support if needed, and it would be hidden by the dinette cushions. Any tips on a good bracket, drilling through the wall (yikes), the need for a backer board, screws vs through bolts, etc? I know it may be pretty difficult to find a wall stud so I may try some test "pinholes" on the inside. Also I assume I need to start small and progress to larger bits to not crack the fiberglass. Thanks in advance for any tips and ideas.

Unfortunately no cubbies-only the front storage area. I was originally thinking about putting an articulating arm in the front pass through storage area but I don't think I could get it to reach under the awning.

My garage tv is a 32" lcd that weighs 12 pounds without the base. This bracket is rated for 27 lbs.

Hey 100turbo, did you buy that mount or did it come with the trailer? That's the kind of mount I was looking for. If you bought it do you have a link?
