Television mount

I am looking at adding a 21" flat screen mount to our RV. I sorta like this mount but wanted to hear any other options before I ordered this one.

MorRyde TV1-021 Double articulating TV Wall Mount

It is good for 25 pounds and the arm extends up to 18" and provides full motion swing, tilts 10 degrees, and swivel. We'd watch the TV mostly in the lock position but need it to move around when we open cabinet doors either side of of the TV.

I have had luck with the Ollo mounts brand, has shock absorbing and also lock mechanisms.
Can't figure out the linking yet, but one of them on amazon.com is listed as:
OLLO MOUNTS: 30-46" Swivel / Tilt **SHOCK ABSORBING** **FINGER TOUCH MEMORY TILT** **PATENTED ARM LOCKING MECHANISM** Flat Screen Universal TV Wall Mount (44N)

i have looked at that one. how do you lock it down so it doesn't float around when you are driving?

We have the MorRyde mount for the 23" flatscreen that we upgraded to. The locking mechanism works well, have not had it let loose in more that 3000 miles so far. The only concern would be the weight. I cut a piece of 1/2" plywood, painted that and mounted it with some wood cleats that i installed. Works good.

I use a bungee cord attached to the cabinet above it.

well, after a great deal of debating I did order the peerless you suggested. I will be "inventing" some type of hold-down instead of the bungee solution you use.

Thanks

I brought a locking cantilever mount from Camping World.
Locking the TV in place for travel is easy - no need to use cords or straps.

I would have used one like that, but this is going on the front of a cabinet and the wall mounting plate needs to be as short as possible, I'll probably make up some type of latch that holds the two arms together when it is pushed in.
