Wink The BEST way to mount a tv on a Camper wall

Ok, I know that is egotistical, but seriously, the only other ways I saw to do it were uuuuugly - big hunks of plywood screwed to the wall. Plus, I don't think they are as stable.

So, without further ado, click here to check out my way of mounting a tv/monitor to the wall, with no giant plywood additions!

Let me know what you think!

fab... Now for my newbie question.... where's the 'cable' for the tv that hooks up to the antenna? (I wish they had wireless tvs... without having an internet connection.)

That's not a newbie question - that's a question from someone who wants the tv to be actually functional. Really, ours is just a monitor, but we can use our chromecast to watch slingtv from the phone/laptop. We are planning to buy a tv. The external cable (to hook to the park's cable if available) will go through the wall right by the emergency window. The cable from the antenna will go through the cabinets and across the ceiling behind the bed curtain.

The only real problem will be hooking it to the speakers if we want to do that. I doubt I will bother since the trailer is so tiny, the speakers from the tv will work just fine. You can't get further than 5' from the tv haha.

Actually, I could have routed the wire to the tv through the wall while I had it open, if I'd thought of it LOL. At the time, we were just planning to use the chromecast, so I didn't bother. I can still drop a wire down along side the board that is in the wall, so it's not a huge issue, but silly that I didn't think of it ahead of time.
