Choosing the Right Mounting Bracket for the TV in Your RV
What Mount Should You Choose in order to Mount a TV Flush to the wall in your RV or Motorhome?
There are a lot of different TVs and mounting brackets to choose from and with many 5 year and older rvs, updgrading to a more energy efficient flat screen tv this becomes a very common question. Here at TVforMyRV, we carry a wide selection of RV TV mounts and brackets pretty much all from MORryde and Bello, so let’s take a look at some of these solutions.
Here at TVforMyRV, we have two additional wall mounts from MORryde to help mount your tv as flush against the wall as possible.
The MORryde TV1-001 is a very sturdy mount that provides some swivel function for your larger tvs, but does not include any tilt function. If you want to put the larger tv at 32″ or even larger tv flush against the wall or at least as close as you can get it and have it still be very secure the tv1-002 is the one you want to use for that situation.
The minimum distance between the wall to the back of the tv is about 1 1/4″ for the MORryrde tv1-002 fixed bracket.
The TV 1-001 has a distance of approximately 4 1/4″ from the wall. Both the TV1-001 and -002 use the same locking mechanism. There are two screws that go in from the outside at the bottom and when you remove those screws the bottom lifts out and the bottom lifts off leaving them wall portion attached to the wall and tv portion attached to the tv.
Another type of bracket that’s common especially for smaller tvs is just a small tight to the wall fixed bracket that doesn’t really go anywhere. We have several choices for you to choose from, if you’re looking for something small and compact just to hold the tv in one spot, The MORryde TV 5-004 is perfect for that and the MORryde TV 5-004 is only 3/4″ thick from the wall to the back of your tv. It will allow up to a one hundred by one hundred millimeter tv, typically up to 19″ or 22″ and it comes with two wall plates so that you can have it use the same bracket for the tv in two different locations.
Another model available from MORryde is the 5-002 and this also uses the same wedge mounting plate you can mount this a little higher on the wall and tilt the TV down a little bit for better viewing or even swivel the tv a little bit if it needs to be swiveled. It comes with two mounting plates to use it in several locations. The MORryde 5-002 is approximately 2 3/4″ from the wall to the back of your TV.
Another heavy-duty alternative is the Bello 7420, now this does not have any swivel function but it does have tilt function and is a very sturdy bracket once again with a removable slide plate. The Bello 7420 is gonna be approximately 2.5″ form the wall to the back of your TV.
Another benefit to the Bello 7420 is that it does come with the adapter wing plates to go up to a two hundred by two hundred millimeter mounting pattern which allows you to put up to typically a 32″ TV on this mount and still hold it securely to the wall and provide some tilt function.
We talked earlier about the Bello 7440 and 7465 using a common mounting plate; you need to be aware that the Bello 7420 mounting plate is NOT compatible with the other two Bello Mounts.
