Alberta. Now I understand. I have these brackets in my BR for a 22" TV that came factory. Although there is no brand or markings on the frames I am thinking that they might be custom for Jayco. There are a few ways you can do this. First if you can order the factory setup or if you're handy and creative you could fabricate one from some store bought items. If you do your own beef up the hinges by way of a piano hinge or a third center hinge to take the weight when moving and when open. If you get some oak you could build out from behind the frame and screw and glue them togehter thus giving you the clearence you need from the face frame for the tv. This might take three pieces of 1 x 2 to achieve the proper distance. Other option is cabinet grade ply wood. Make sure you pilot hole the oak and use good quality screws. Then you can use a flat flush mount tv bracket to mount on angle iron screwed into the blocks. The angle iron comes pre drilled if you get the shelving type sold in most home improvement stores and you can cut it to length. Best option is to go to a local welding shop and have angle iron cut and pre-drilled to accept your bracket. Then you can paint it black and have a nice finished look. Probaly about $50.00-$75.00 in parts if you shop the bracket right. Mono price has them for under $10.00. I have not seen or searched for these type brackets but I am sure they are specialized. Also there is a car hatch shock closer mounted on my door which keeps the tv in the open or closed position which you should condider mounting on yours so it does not pop open while going down the road. Good luck.

Some good ideas here but I am not that handy to attempt something like you suggest, but if I could find this set up then I could do the mount myself. Jayco was not very helpful when I phoned last year. It was suggested that I obtain a serial number from a newer Jayco with this set up. I may give that a whirl. Thanks again!!!
