TV size for a 2014 Jay Flight 22FB?

Any recommendations on a TV size and mounting brackets for this type of travel trailer? Thank you!

We have a 26" in our 2014 22FB. Not sure about brackets though.

What ever fits and meets your needs and habits. So many people put a 5' flatscreen in a 10x12 room in their home. Its like sitting in front row at a drive-in. Important that the tv and the distance where you will view it are in balance.

Amazon suggests this formual:

Minimum TV dimensions = Viewing distance / 3
Maximum TV dimensions = Viewing distance / 1.5

For example, if you'll be sitting 10 feet away from your television, that's 120 inches. This gives you a minimum TV screen size of 40 inches and a maximum screen size of 80 inches.

This works fine for at home, but the OP is asking about TV size for a Jayco 22 FB. In a relatively small TT like a 22fb, you are limited by two things:
1. Wall space on which to physically mount the TV; and
2. Viewing distance from TV.
Dinette Area: A 22 FB has about 22 inches of space between the cabinet and the bathroom door. (See WWT's photo in response above). I can't argue with WWT's 26 inch TV in that space, but after checking the dimensions online, it seems most 26 inch TVs will not fit in 22 inches of wall space. Probably more like a 22 inch (measured diagonally) TV for that space. The farthest viewing distance (TV to couch) is about 10 feet.
Bedroom area: The wall with the TV mount is 36 inches wide. This means that the biggest you can go is around a 40 inch TV (measured diagonally) in that space, but that would be a tight fit. Remember, the 40 inches is just the actual screen measured diagonally - you must also include the frame width, which is usually about 1 or 1.5 inches on each side. A 40 inch Samsung is actually 36.5 inches in total width, and therefore would NOT fit on that wall. The farthest viewing distance (TV to front of bed) is about 7 feet.

I don't have a TV mount suggestion for you, as we have not put a TV in our TT.

There is 30" of wall space beside the bathroom door. The 26" TV is 25" wide. This TV is factory installed. If I had installed it I would be able to help with information on the mount.
