The interior of our Flagstaff was obviously designed before flat screen tv's became affordable. The shelf for the tv is deep and designed for a tube type tv. In an effort to make things look more modern they found a small flat screen tv that fit in the opening.
This is fine except the viewing angle is so poor it looks like an X-ray when looking up at it, plus it was not visible from the bed. SInce it was freestanding it also had to be taken down every time we were on the road.
I decided a swivel mount was in order. The problem is I couldn't mount it to the back wall as the opening is so deep I would have to go with a very expensive mount, plus I wasn't sure how to attach it. I wanted to attach the mount to the cabinet on the left but there was an outlet, antenna jack and audio/video wallplate in the way. I considered mounting it to the refrigerator wall but there was no support and I didn't want to pull the refrigerator to reinforce the wall. I decided to make a stand out of a couple scrap pieces of 2X4. I bolted this to the shelf and attached the mount.
I can now tilt it down for a proper viewing angle and swing it out for viewing from the bed.
I can also fold it in and secure it with a bungee cord for travel.
