The one we are getting doesn't have a TV. The brochure and website only list Residencial size tv
No dimensions

What size TV do you have on the bedroom wall?

We just ordered a 2021 Alpha Wolf RL-L. I have read a 40" TV fits nice in the living room area. What size TV have you hung on the bed room wall?

I'm have a 32" in our 26DBH-L bedroom. 40" in the living room.

How did you mount them? The plastic slide piece does not match up with the mounting screws on the TV. Not only that, but I did not find any screws to go with the mounting bracket in the trailer.

I want to find a swivel mount that would allow the TV to be turned towards the seating area in the slide. Does anyone have this set up?

About to take delivery of a 26L-L as well.

Looking at tvs and mounts now. Opening is right at 50+ diagonal and 42 1\2 x 30 1/2 opening.

Sanus BMF320-B1 mount looks good for a 32 to 55 tv and swivels with full motion allowing use of all the storage behind the tv. If 50 tv chosen the mount will allow it to sit out from the cabinet frame and work.

Not sure what size tv Ill decide on but these are my findings to date.

I called FR this morning and their rep that helped me said that the TV backing plate measures 12in by 12in by 2in, screwed in between 2x4's. He also said that the backing plate is rated for 30 lbs maximum. I questioned him about the 2 inch thickness and he confirmed that it was. I'm still not sure about that.

The rep also mentioned that I needed to be careful because any alterations to the framework of the trailer that leads to damage can partially or fully void the warranty.

That is obviously for the bedroom TV.

My comments were about the living room TV.

In the living room you have a 6 in. square mounting base. It is actually quite sturdy but my plan would be to reinforce it to be certain.

Seems to me that the advice you got for the bedroom TV is spot on.

No, the information I asked for was for the living room TV area, not the bedroom. I don't plan on putting a TV in the bedroom.

The 6 inch mounting bracket that you are talking about is crewed into the 12x12 piece of wood inside of the wall.

Has anyone attached a swing arm tv mount to the 6" mount that comes with the camper. I'd like to keep the 6" mount so I can slide the tv on and off for use outside. But I would like to be able to swing the TV out to access behind it, or face it in a certain direction.
