Healthi - funny I was just reading one of your posts reg the 29BHS and was wondering your thoughts on the tv location. The trailer is used and doesnt have a tv in it at the moment, so we couldn't really test the viewing angle.

I guess this is the only item we were unsure about, other than that we love it!

If you put the tv on one of those 'swing' arms, you could fold it back against the wall so a person can get in and out of the dinette easily without bumping it.

Since you don't already have the tv mounted, visualize where the tv would be if you mounted it with a swing arm up higher, and also down a bit lower. Sit on the couch or the side of the dinette that backs up to the fridge. Stare up a the spot where the tv would be mounted higher on the wall. Then after a few minutes, stare pretty much straight ahead lower on the wall. That might help you decide.

When you purchase the tv and swing mount, hold it up close to wall and you can get a better idea how it might look and what space it may take up. That could clinch the decision for you.

Hope this helps! Let us know what you do

Well we sealed the deal for the 29BHS @ Diamond RV and we got a chance to go through the camper again. After making the finial go through, we def know we selected the right camper! The viewing angle for the tv wasn't bad at all.

Cannot wait for the last week of April!

Maybe a flip down TV bracket mounted under the DVD cabinet would give you the ease of use and a compromise on the height? Still a little higher than on top of the table but you don't have to move it all the time which could lead to a drop.

I have seen them on some pushers.
