mtnguy, i installed the TV mount you recommended and I gotta thank you. It turns out it is a really well designed mount.

I plan on making a "tuning fork" gizmo to slide up and clamp the two arms together while driving. It should hold the TV steady without having to wrap bungee cords around the monitor. I'll post a few photos of what it looks like when it is done.

You are welcome. Glad it worked out for you. I will be interested to see what you come up with to lock that puppy down.

Out of curiosity, where can you and where can you not install a TV mount on your TT? I have purchased a TV with a stand, and was planning on just wrapping it well and storing it while traveling but I'd love to have it on a mount.

A stud on an interior or exterior wall would work, but you probably either need to take the TV of during travel, or take some weight off of it so it doesn't pull the screws out and end up on the floor. On my mount, I used wood beside of the microwave, but take the weight off of the TV while traveling by using a bungee cord hooked to the overhead cabinet above.

With mine installation I don't need to worry about the screws pulling out, as you see it is mounted onto the little over-the-cab "entertainment cabinet" I recently built. Knock on wood, it should hold.

I simply made a tuning fork, out of a few pieces of scrap wood, that will lock the two arms together when it is pushed back to the cabinet and keep the TV tight to the cabinet. There is a bit of a barb at the open end of the fork to hold it in place.

I haven't road tested it but with a 10 pound TV i think I should be good.

I'm looking at a MORryde locking model as well... TV1-006H. Planning to use it on a 32 inch toshiba that is on a fixed mount in our rockwood 8317rkss (presently the viewing angle from the couch is terrible). MOview also makes some nice locking mounts as well. Have not fully decided. Either way, was thinking of fastening the new mount to the existing fixed mount so that I don't need to drill any more holes. Anyone with any experience or thoughts on that?

Thanks for the post and the photos. I will review your mod to see if I want to go that route with my setup.

LOL, i actually scrapped that idea and made another, much simpler bracket. when i went to hook up the DVD player it turned out the HDMI cable was right below where the tuning fork needs to be. I made a bracket that catches the bottom the the set when it is parked, it actually hangs from the front edge of the shelf below the the one in the photo. i'm post a photo later.
