Help Mounting TV in Jayco Ultra Lite 197

Looking for some advice on a good TV bracket and where to mount it on a Jayco Jay Feather Ultra Lite 197. Is it best to mount on back wall above refrigerator or on the wood side panel next to the microwave? If on the wall, how do I find a metal stud? Also looking for some vendor suggestions for a mounting arm. Thanks,

Go to Amazon for the bracket and you can buy a stud finder at the hardware store that has a metal stud setting and electrical setting on them

You will probably have to mount a back board up first maybe using MOLLY BOLTS. The trailer walls are too thin to support any weight from one screw in the wall. The screw will pull out. The idea is to mount a large 1/2-inch thick board across the area to spread out the weight and then you can use regular wood screws to hold up your HDTV mounts to the backboard.

Couple of ideas shown here

This is a MOLLY BOLT. It spreads out when you install it to spread out the weight around the bolt.

You can find a very large selection of different HDTV mounting hardware at WALMART in the TV section. Also on AMAZON...

I have a "Mor Ryde" brand tv mounting bracket. It's made to take bumps while towing and locks up to the wall while towing. Unlocks to position whenever you want when camping.

I want to mount TV to forward cabinet side of our 2010 Jayco Sport165.
Would you recomment glueing/bolting a reinforcement board to cabinet before attaching bracket?
Alternative would be to just bolt through side of cabinet.
