Heres where I mounted a 28" TV in my 222!

Hope this helps a few of you guys. I just finished installing a Vizio 28" over the cabinet instead of setting one ON the cabinet. I will let the pics speak for themselves, but basically there is a stud in the corner so I cut off a piece of the trim to fit the mount flush with the wall.

The mount is this one I picked up at menards very strong and reasonably priced under $30...

Barkan Mounting systems - Products Management

it has a good amount of friction in the arm to keep the TV against the wall for the most part.

I mounted it with about 2 inches top and bottom clearance on the TV itself


fits perfect behind the charging station, also helps keep it folded up sitting behind the charger protrusion. My next step is 2 small eye screws and bungee cord to retain it even better in transit



initial stowed position


with mount cover attached

in position to view from the rear benches



I had to grind away on the mount plate slightly so it would not cover a few of the inputs

Here is a huge bonus, this mount allows me to swing the TV to be able to view in the front bed without even putting one in the bedroom area! Only downside with this is making sure you swing it out of the way real quick to get into the bathroom


I pulled with probably 80 pounds of force on this mount and it will not move. I almost wanted to put a 32" here but I think the 28 is a perfect fit.

Hopefully this helps!

Steve

This seems to be a great spot to mount my tv but I'm still feeling concerned about the strength of the "so called" stud in the wall. I really wish that I had a picture of what it looks like behind the panel, just to be sure. I would just prefer to do it right the first time, with no mishaps. I still thank you for the pics and your mounting location. Its looks good.

What size screws

Looking to mount the TV in my bedroom tonight. I have Jayco 26X1, the mount location is noted and I have the plans. I know there is a 1/2 inch piece of plywood at the location. Obviously the 2" screws that came with the mount won't work, but will 3/4" screws be ok to hold the mount in place during the haul. 32" TV will be attached.

32" tv mounted

Just thought I would show my install. We emailed and got the plans for the wall in order to mount it properly. It's sturdy and should hold nicely.

I mounted a 32" above the cabinet and have a 28" in the sleeping area in our 222.
