Mounting a television

So our new TT came with just about everything but the TV and the mount. There is a predetermined spot on the wall where we're going to put it but I wanted to see what kind of mounts other people used before I just started drilling into the wall. Any suggestions? I'm thinking a 24 inch tv is plenty big and will not weigh very much. Also, what kind of screws did others use? Wood? Self tapping? I'm just trying to get everything squared away before the first trip in two weeks!!!

I went with a 22" and two mounts married together. One is an articulating type mount to make viewing easier at different angles and the other is a slip-in mount that makes removal of the TV for travel really easy. Here are the two parts if you're interested:

Not the best pictures but you probably get the idea.

I mounted a 22" in the bedroom. It too had a spot marked out for the tv. I used small bolts. I bolted it though the wall to the other side and hung a picture on the other side to hide the bolt heads.

Thanks to both of y'all for the ideas! Quahog, thanks for the pictures and the links. The articulating arm seems like a must, I'll be buying one like that. Cfd, if our bedroom was a little larger then the bolt idea would work perfect and I'd probably never have to worry about it coming loose, but our trailer is so small were only going to have the one tv by the couch. Thank u both for the info.

I put in the same setup as Quahog in the bedroom, with his helpful advice.

BTW, I just used some small lag bolts and went into the studs in the walls. It's plenty secure enough to hold TVs of the 20-26" size. My 22" only weighs about 8 lbs.

I'm assuming that the pre-marked spot on the wall for the TV has studs directly behind it? I like the quick release mount to take the tv down while towing.

Yes and some even have a larger wood block fastened to the studs.

You can send an email to service@jayco.com and ask them to provide the framing layout for your TT. Make sure to send your VIN and they're pretty quick about replying with the info requested.

My Jayco came with a 22in tv mounted in the face of one of the cabinet doors and all the wires inside the cabinet but also came with a predetermined wall mount spot. I called Jayco and for my 23k they recommended keeping it all under 12lbs. total and said the wall had extra support framing to accomodate the weight. They said any mount of my choosing would suffice(bolt pattern etc). Walmart.com has some really cheaper priced ones with good quality. I have 5 led/lcd tv's in my house from 55" down to 22" all wall mounted and Planet 3 makes a great mount(for 13"to37" tv's) for $20 but currently out of stock online. Articulating arms are great just push back against wall before traveling.
