Trail Trailer TV Mounts

I ordered my new trailer without a TV. The dealer said if I brought in a mount, he would install it for me, when I came to put it up.

Now I have to figure out what to get... the 28RBDS has the swivel mirror / TV .
Any advise what mount to buy?

The choice is ultimately yours. I didn't buy the mount from Jayco because I wanted a swivel style mount. I was concerned that I would not be able to see the tv clearly from the couch.

I bought a generic swivel mount for my size tv, then I used some nylon webbing to create straps to hold the tv tight to the wall when I am driving. For me, it was worth the financial savings because I knew I wanted to make straps anyways.

For others, they just buy an RV specific mount that is designed for the stress of bouncing down the road and they don't modify the product at all.

If you search for RV television mounts, you will find many items are available. Buy the one the fits your needs, tv size, budget, etc.

I can't make a suggestion what to get, just where to get it. Try Mono Price. They have mounts for every conceivable need at good prices and they are great quality. Search on both TV mounts, and monitor mounts.

Look on Amazon. Large selection at reasonable prices.

I picked up a nice swivel wall mount at Bj's for about $40. It will hold up to a 37" TV.
(I mounted a 26") Like you, I brought it to the dealer and they installed it (bedroom) for no charge. It's on an outside wall so I was too nervous to install it myself.

I'm in the same boat but would like to mount to an exterior wall myself so what fasteners have folks used successfully?

What about posting swivel mounts on the Center Entertainment center, that also spins between the living room and bedroom.

I just bought these and am going to try and figure out how to install it tomorrow. This isn't an RV specific mount, as you can tell by the price, but that's the reason for the quick release. I plan to remove it while traveling. I have the standard "mount here" stickers, but I don't know if I want to attach this tv mount to a small piece of plywood first or just use the two screw holes on the mount.

I don't think 'RV specific' mounts are necessary. I like the idea of a quick release to take the TV down when traveling. All the bouncing could rip that sucker right off the wall. When mounting on an exterior wall, Jayco marks where the stud is, but I'm not sure how accurate the sticker is. I would use a stud finder for sure and of course you need to be careful on the length of the screws that you use. My TV in the entertainment center came mounted, but as mentioned I had the dealer install the bedroom mount.
