1st question: Why?


Then we get into technical: A) will the mount support a larger (heavier) TV? B) will a larger screen fit in the same space? C) will the wall support a heavier TV?


Generally, any of us can replace/upgrade any part of our RV. It all boils down to how much do you want to spend to do it.

Thought it would be nice to have a larger screen. Was planning on using a TV similar weight. The cabinet would be in thw way with the width.

The easiest way (and at no cost) is to walk to the trailer door, open it, and look at the 180 degree, 3D panoramic view. Better than any tv....hands down.

The screen is the largest contribution to the weight of a television. CRT or flat panel. The electronics and power supply don't change much within a class. And if you check, the border around the screen ain't much either.

Different strokes for different folks: Back packs, tents, popups, hybrids, TT, 5th wheels, Classes-C & B & A... campers all.

That's only for us who boondock.

There's them what share a quarter acre with 45 other RV's. Not much to look at there. But they have everything.

Or the tailgater crowd that sets up in sports stadium parking lot. Lots of fun and food. Local television is part of the experience.

Roadwarrior, I'm with you. Pop open that door, breath in that fresh country air and hear SWMBO tell me to put some pants on.
