No first hand advice Ray, but a friend of ours fitted one and he has been very pleased with it.

Thank you I have purchased one but was wondering wether to just screw it onto the inside side panel or wether to take out the fridge /freezer and reinforce the back of the side panel.

Our tv mounting bracket is fitted adjacent to the habitation door at the height of the microwave above the fridge freezer. This bracket whereby the complete swing out arm mechanism connected to the tv slots down into it, is mounted on a 15x10cm block directly to the cabinet. Assume this double thickness allows longer fixing screws?

I doubt if the side panel needs reinforcing Ray. The problem is more likely to be with the screws. The wood is strong but not very dense, and they could pull out under load.

By first mounting the TV bracket on a large back board, it could be secured with double sided carpet tape and many more screws than there are holes in the bracket.

This would give a far more secure fixing and would spread the load on the fridge side panel. A 6 mm backboard in decent multi ply would be more than adequate.

Ray, i dont know if you have (or require) a TV for the bed...
our Bolero had virtually the same layout as your van and i put a 22" TV (on a triple arm swivel) on the bed side of the fridge.
this meant we could watch tv in bed and it was also easily swivelled through 180 deg to be warched from the cab seats/lounge.
obviously, same caveats with support etc...
good luck...

I believe the Project 200 bracket can be swivelled 220 deg when extended, mine can.

Thank you both for your comments ,yes the bracket can be swivelled through 220 deg,so in the cupboard will be best as I have the bracket,but I understand what is being said about fitting a triple arm bracket on the bedroom side of the fridge.

We used to swivel the tv to face the bed but it was most irksome and unable to view complete screen if sleeping next to window due to the fridge freezer cabinet. Bought an  e-star portable tv 9" D1T2 and being lightweight, didn't require any reinforcement to fit the bracket. Fixing screws were of sufficient length to go through the side panel assured by the gap between that and the microwave. Perhaps a bit indulgent, but nice to watch early morning news with the all important cup of coffee.

Just about to buy a sliding Project 2000 sliding bracket for the dedicated slot on the 2017 Broadway FB. Not sure if the bracket would be best fixed to the door side rather than the fridge side. Any thoughts

Fit it on the side away from where you would normally view the TV, it can be swiveled to view the other way when required. I would guess the fridge side (viewing from the lounge) if you have access to the other side of the panel.
