Morning all, thanks for the welcome.
So, the first of probably many requests for help !!
Could someone advise on the fixing of a tv mount in the lounge (Burford Duo) with regard to thickness
of wall panel next to fridge/microwave. Would I need to reinforce the panel.
Going to fit a 21.5 inch avtex. What length screws and a recommendation on a bracket would be nice.

Thankyou

Steve

This works satisfactory, in situ when acquiring new to us van. Simply a small matching wood grain block initially fixed by four short screws then TV mount with longer screws to give double fixture strength.[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

TThe matching subtle wedged fixing on the adjustable arm allows the TV to be slotted on/off if need be. Various names available.

Paramedic, how do you find the viewing angle being high up ?

Will you travel with it fitted or un hitch it? The instant load will be significant going over bumps

If you can get behind the panel to fit a reinforcing block it will always be more secure.

We find it ok, more so as from the cab, with the seats partly reclined creates the ideal position for prolonged viewing. Of course you can decide the fixing height that suits you. Regards.
