Mounting TV Jay Feather Sport 165

Purchased 2011 Jay Feather Sport-165. Has anyone mounted a TV? If so, could you tell me where and what type of mount you used? Want something permanent. Also looking for interior dimentions of trailer Length & Width.
Thanks

We place our flat screen TV on counter, just to right of the sink. All hook ups are in that area. We do have to pack away the TV when underway.

Thumbs up

Our camper arrived at dealer today. Asked the owner if he had any ideas but he was stumped. At this stage will have to put on counter. When we do dishes will have to move. Still trying to figure out where to put my Sat receiver. I have plenty of time to figure it out. Thanks for your comments.

We just bought a 2010 165 and mounted a tv yesterday...the mount is on the side of the cabinet above the sink, is that what you were thinking?...it is a full motion mount with a tv/dvd combo that is 13.3 inch screen...we can move it to see the tv even from the bed!

jbarck, can you tell us the make and model no. of the mount ?

After I saw your post I zipped up to Walmart and bought a bracket -
Sanus Vuepoint
Model no. F107
full - motion
tilt and swivel tv wall mount

Does not work; arm is not long enough.

jbarack,

Could you take some pictures of where and how you mounted tv. Did you re-enforce the bracket inside the cabinet? Are you able to secure the TV when traveling or do you have to remove? Type of bracket and model. Where did you purchase mount? I pick up my new TT Monday morning. Thanks for your comments.

we bought the tv and wall mount at hhgregg....here's a link to the product:http://www.omnimount.com/Product/Fla...0C/...it's an omni nc03c small cantilever wall mount. it is just screwed into the cabinet my husband will probably bolt it in and we do plan on securing it with bungy cords while traveling. We just picked up our camper last weekend and are going on our maiden voyage next weekend...will let you know how we make out.
not sure how to attach pictures...will try to figure that out as well.

Any report on your first trip with TV Bracket on your new JayFeather Sport 165?

The more I look at that cabinet mounting area the more uncomfortable I am with its holding power. The cabinet is held to TT wall with just screws. And the side panel of cabinet is very thin. What I have put there is a paper towl rack. But this could change.

Muelldawg,

I had the same concern about mounting TV to cabinet. I found a wooden bread box at Target which fits on the counter on the right side of the sink. It is high enought to keep tv from getting splashed. I put some anti-skid tabs on bottom of box so it won't slide. I have both my Directv reciver and 19" Vizio TV stacked on the bread box. Put skid tabs on receiver and tv. Very steady. I plan on taking down tv, receiver and bread box when traveling. Have quick disconnects on tv and receiver. In Colorado we do alot of dry camping in the mountains. I must have Sat tv. I have a 200-watt power inverter which I use. Works great. Tv and sat receiver only pull 50-watts. I had dealer install series 27 battery which gives me plenty of battery. Going to fill water tank this week and hope to make first trip first of next week.
