New Z17X owner

I am picking up my new camper tomorrow and I was curious about two things.

1) I want to put a TV mount to hold a small LCD TV. Is there anything that I need to be careful of? I am worried that I will do something bone headed like puncture the outside wall or damage the wall, etc.

2) How much weight can those beds actually hold?

Yes, you want to be very careful where you mount it. If you don't have a sticker on the wall that says "TV mount" or some such, contact Jayco and ask for the framing details on your TT. You'll need your VIN.

Pick a spot that gives you a good view from a variety of angles and make sure it's a comfortable height. You don't want to get giraffe neck watching it.

Do a search on this forum for "TV mounts" to get some ideas how others have tackled the problem. I used this search argument on Google and got good results:

Hi and welcome to the family. I mounted my TV, above the refrigerator. I did not mount it to the outside wall. I mounted it to the end of the radio cabinet. I think the beds are rated for 1100 pounds, but I am not sure. I know it was a lot of weight. Have fun with the new trailer.
