Flat tv screen mounting

How do you mount a flat screen overhead at the front? Any thing special to know about vibration? Should i just use a mount like in my house?

Re: Flat tv screen mounting

We used an articulated mount from Wal-Mart for the Class C. I don't like it. It "drops" the TV to where it tilts down towards the floor and we have to hold the TV "up" with a bungie cord. We will use a wall mount (again from Wal-Mart) that tips up/down and we will not need to move it once installed. I need to come up with a ceiling mount one for the TV over the bed that can hold the DVD player.

This is similar to the one we have in the Class C

This is similar to the one we will install in the bus. Our TV will be mounted in the top section of the Fireplace Mantle.

Re: Flat tv screen mounting

My mount is articulated, and allows the TV to pull away from the wall and swing to face front or rear. The tilt angle is adjustable, but firmly set with an allen head wrench. I find we can set it and forget it. I used some industrial adhesive Velcro strips to hold the mount/TV against the wall while traveling.

Re: Flat tv screen mounting

Have mine on a cheap basic wall mount and it doesn't vibrate much at all. If you cut holes up their for speakers you could just drill holes for the tv to bolt directly there and not use a mount if you have a tv with the input jacks inset a little bit or going to the side, or even cut a hole on the back side to hook those up out of sight.

Thanks. I have learned a bit. Not a hard or bad at all.

Re: Flat tv screen mounting

I mounted mine by screwing some longer bolts in to the standard mount holes along with some large flange washers. Then I wrapped some 8mm accessory climbing rope with a loop on each end around each "post" I had created, and wrapped it ~5 times around a passenger grab-bar, hooked the end loop back to the start loop, and there it hangs. Bonus: when moving, you just rotate it up and hook another small rope to it and it's totally out of the way, and just "wiggles a little" while driving
