New to Rv life.. 2021 Wolfpup 16bhs. What size tv to install

Hey all,
We pick up our new toy this Thursday. The online manual is for the birds.. So, just wondering what size tv you think we can install by the door, above the queen bed. The salesman said a 32", but that seems like it wouldnt fit.
Any tips?
Also, would love to hook it up to a Nvidia Shield or a fire stick.
An added bonus would be to get a soundbar mounted under or above the tv, since sitting in the camper with the A/C going it was quite loud. You guys have any issues with that?

Thanks!@

Problem with television sizes is that is the diagonal measurement fudged within an inch and does not include the frame. It also may have a slight difference in the shape of the screen.
That said, I measured that area on my 2019 16BHS. You have to allow for that rounded ceiling corner. Height is from door to front cabinet, window shade valence to ceiling. You can pull up the manual of the television you are considering for its exterior dimensions.

- look at 5:27 timeframe; he's using a 32" but had to re-position the mounting bracket.

Wall seems flimsy to me so I settled for a lighter 24" smart Vizio.

I put a 24" Vizio smart in my 20BDSE grey wolf. It is a nice fit for the kitchen/living area.

So the TV backer says it's by the table in the 16BHS. Where exactly is the backer in the wall. I've drilled 3 holes so far, and haven't hit it once. I'm ruining my wall.

Wood backer in mine was a really soft pine or something. had to use a nail to locate even thought the backer was quite large. Drill ran thru wood with very little resistance, and I couldn't tell I hit it.

just a word of warning that the Insignia tv's have VERY VERY VERY weak sound output from the headphone jack. if you are trying to connect it to your stereo forget about it. you will end up hating it or taking it apart and modding it like i did. let me know if you need the details to make it work correctly.

We had this exact same tv in our previous small bunkhouse (Wildwood 19DBXL) and it fit perfectly. Like others have said, a 32 inch is probably too large.
