Many RV owners are so excited about purchasing a brand-new flat screen TV for their vehicles that they fail to consider how they will install it. Many older RVs — especially ones built before the year 2000 — were not designed to accommodate today’s larger LED or LCD televisions, creating the need to install stronger TV mounting brackets. Choosing the right RV TV mounting brackets is essential for preventing damage to your TV while traveling.

If you're looking to install your new high-definition LCD TV in front of your old TV's box, you may want to look at the Bello 7465 articulating arm mount. This arm supports up to 50 lbs. and will allow you to mount your TV to the arm and swing the arm and some of the back of the TV into the recess of your existing TV box. See this product in actual use in our RV.
There are wall mounts that are stationary, tilt up and down, swivel side to side, or can be pushed back flush to the wall when not in use. Consider a desk-mounted option, a ceiling-mounted TV, or even an under-the-cabinet mount. Basement cargo bays can even be fitted with sliding mounts that extend out from the vehicle for watching TV outdoors. Choose a mount that allows your TV to rotate 180 degrees from room to room, or hide your TV inside a cabinet or entertainment center shelf before you extend it forward and adjust it when in use.
Let’s take a closer look at some of the more common RV/motorhome TV mounting bracket types:
TVforMyRV also carries the adapter plates and knob kits you may need to make your particular TV model compatible. These TV mount selections mostly include options for small to medium flat screens, though some have adapters for larger mounting-hole configurations. If you need your RV’s TV to pull out, lift up, slide forward, tilt down, pan across, rotate, drop down, extend an arm out, or swivel, you’ve come to the right place. If mounted properly to an appropriate weight-bearing surface using the included hardware and instructions, your TV isn’t going to go anywhere while you’re on the open road.
One piece of caution! Some of these mounting solutions have been designed by the manufacturer for use in buildings, and are to be attached to masonry or 2x4 wood-framed walls. These mounts are very strong, but the weak link using them in our RVs is the strength of the wall or cabinet the mount is attached to and the hardware used to attach the mount to the wall or cabinet. TVforMyRV will not assume any liability for the use of these products in your RV. You are responsible for the choice of hardware, the mounting solution, and the installation. If you are in doubt, consult your local professional installer for advice.
