Mounting a 42" tv on a 26" wide wall

I did this in my house when I realized the only place for a tv to go was in this corner between two windows. It seemed to work out ok, so I thought I'ld try it in the trailer. When I got it I had planned to mount the tv right on the wall in front of (at the foot of)the bed. But the way they had the doors set up I couldnt do it. There were two sliding doors to the left and right of the bedroom entrance and a 26" wall between them. The left door slid across in front of the wall. So even if the wall was substantial enough to mount a tv the door wouldnt be able to open. So I made a "wall" out of 3/4" cherry veneered plywood to match the "heritage mocha" wood in the trailer. That effectively turned the left sliding door into a pocket door. Now I had a solid place to mount the tv. But I wanted a bigger tv then the 30" or so I would be able to fit on the 26" new "wall". So I remembered the mount I made in the house and did the same thing which let me fit a 42" tv on the wall. The pics I took are pretty bad so If the trailer pics are confusing heres the house to give you an idea. What I did was instead of useing the 4 bolts to mount the tv plate to the articulating arm plate, I drilled a 1/2" hole in the center and welded a 1/2" bolt to the backside of the arm plate and bolted it the the tv plate with a nylock nut so the tv can swivel. It stores vertically. And pulls out and spins to watch it. Heres the trailer pics I made some angles with plastic knobs and some double stich foam tape with one side left with plastic just for a cushion. I even took a "tv must be latched before travel" sticker from the kitchen area where the tv is supposed to go for a "factory" look.

Thanks. The walls have enough space for tv's. I am more worried about weight and bracket. Any suggestions?
