Mounting a TV on the wall of your RV isn’t as clear cut as you might think. There are literally thousands of different types of mounts out there to choose from. You want to make sure the one you choose is right for your particular application.
We recently purchased a new RV. On the wall in the bedroom was a label indicating the spot to which a TV mount could be attached. The wall is just over an inch thick and behind the wall is plywood to help support the bracket. The TV we are mounting is a 22” LCD which weighs about 16 lbs.
I quickly discovered that shopping for the proper TV bracket was going to be a challenge. Because the mount was going into a RV and not a typical home setting, it posed additional concerns. The mount needed the following features:
- Have the proper dimensions
- Be able to support the weight of the TV
- Have the proper mounting pattern for the TV
- Provide the proper viewing angle
- Have a locking feature
- Have a mount designed for my application
The last 2 features were the ones that fell short on most all of the models that I found. Since the wall was only 1” the long bolts that come with most wall brackets would not work unless I wanted to be able to hang a jacket on the end of the screw protruding from the outside of the wall. I also needed a way to lock the TV into place while traveling. Make sure you consider the weight capacity. Keep in mind that unlike the mount in your home, this one is going to be subject to the typical bumps and jars of traveling down the road.
I discovered MOR/ryde offered TV mounts that fit my needs perfectly. MOR/ryde has been manufacturing suspension systems since 1966, so who better to provide my RV with a suspension system for my TV. They have an excellent reputation for providing exceptional products in the RV industry.
MOR/ryde has Wall Mounts, Base Mounts, Ceiling Mounts, Sliding Mounts and Specialty Mounts. I found the Portable Mount to be quite interesting. With this mount you can lift your TV off the wall in one location and move it to another location.
