Depends on where you want the tv.
We had a small trailer and no where to put it on the walls. So we put a locking swivel mount on the side of a kitchen cabinet.

I did a similar install, only I used a bedroom cabinet. I actually used the inside, so the cabinet is not useable for much in the way of storage, but we were not using it anyway.

You have a couple options when you only have one stud handy.

The easiest is to use a mount similar to this one that mounts on a single stud vertically.

https://www.monoprice.com/product?p_id=15867

I used this one for both a 22" in the bedroom and a 40" in the living area.

Another option I have seen is if there are a couple of studs which you can mount a finished piece of lumber like 1" x 6" by whatever length you need and then you mount the TV mount on that. Generally your going into a 1" think piece of stud with a 1/16" or 1/8" piece of luan so you can't use more than 1.25" screws unless your mount is thick or you go through the other side of the wall.

Plenty strong of you get good bites with your install screws. I did put a bungee on it when traveling to keep it from extending and putting enough leverage on the mount to pull the screws loose.

TV Mount

Since this subject came up, I have a question. Hope you all don't mind. We recently bought a 2019 Flagstaff 5th wheel. It came with a TV mount on the outside. We can't seem to find a TV mount for our TV that will fit this mount. We have looked at a lot of TV mounts. The one on the trailer has a round hole that looks like the opposing part should have a disk to slip down into it. Anyone else have anything like that? Thx

Pics of the mount would be more helpful than a description.
