TV Mount

We recently purchased a 2018 29RE. It has a the TV mounted on the back wall on a rigid bracket. I would like to install a bracket that would allow me to turn the TV and not have to move the chairs.
The TV is a 51" Jensen. Model JE3215
The manual calls for an adjustable angle wall mount.
The only one I have been able to find mounts to a single stud behind the center of the TV. Which means I would need a sturdy stud in the center of the back wall of the RV. I'm concerned about finding a stud where needed and the strength of the mount while traveling down the road.
Has anyone attempted this modification and how did you accomplish it?

depending on how your rig was mfged there may be a stud or most likely a backing plate, some are labeled with max load. As for travel the TV should be flat mode not the articulated position to limit stress on the mounting. I have not heard of anyone doing this so take pics and let the forum know how this turns out.

I hadn't thought of the possibility of a backing plate being in place. I'll have to take the TV off the wall and investigate further. Thanks
