Installing TV in Basement Storage

I have a 2012 Palomino Sabre 32RCTS and want to install a flat screen tv in the patio side front storage area. There are already electrical and cable outlets there so it looks like this was an optional accessory. I would like to know what type and size of mounting bracket I can use to mount it to the left side wall and have it swing out for viewing. I found the aluminum studs but am not sure on the type of mount to use. I will probably install a 24" - 26" tv.

Any one of the mounts that you buy at best buy , walmart etc should be OK. Most of them have on the outside of the box the maximun size tv that the mount will support. They run anywhere from $59.00-250.00 for the type that you want.

Send some pics when you do install something.

Sabre use to offer the outdoor TV package for this area (ended 2012) but still install outlets for freestanding TV set ups.

Currently, I keep storage bay TV in our bedroom when traveling or stored and set it up on the floor of the storage bay at campground...little more work than having it permanently mounted.
Been thinking about perm mount...

The one drawback to permanently mounting the tv is sunlight. My in laws MH has a basement tv and I can't count the times we've wished we could move it to a table or something. Maybe with the swing out you will be able to adjust it better than his.

I installed the Morryde basement TV slide mount in the storage compartment. Not cheap, but really well made unit. Highly recommended.
