Did you pick it up in the store or have it shipped? You guys have been such a great help! So glad to have found this forum.
I was hoping for more movement too, but every extended mount I looked at weighed way too much, or was so thick that we would loose the rotation on the entertainment center.
Walmart had a slim line mount that rotates and swivels for around $25 that I considered, but I really wanted the TV to not protrude from the box too much.
I picked mind up at CW. It was the exact same price in store.

As mentioned in an earlier post, check the thickness of your mounting board... a 5/8" screw would have been to long on mine as the board is only 7/16 thick and the bedroom mirror is flush against the mounting board. Don't need to break a mirror in the trailer....
You have to remember that most wood screws are setup to be countersunk, and 1/8-3/16 is in the screw head. With that and the mounting plate thickness, the effective length is 1/8-3/16" shorter.
