Brand name of Extendable Wall Mount TV Arm?

We ordered the Extendable Wall Mount TV Arm (For 15" - 22" TVs) for our 2017 21' bumper pull trailer.

1. Does anyone know the brand/model of the TV arm?

2. I was wondering why the TV size limit is 22"?

3. Has anyone mounted a 24" TV to this arm?

Different sized TVs have different mounting VESA standards; the ETI holder may not be large enough or have the right hole pattern.

See the chart here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flat_D...ting_Interface

You nailed it! That was the underlying reason for my request.

While there are different hole patterns for different mounts, the mounting arm that Escape installs will be compatible with practically every smaller LCD TV -- even up to 30 inches plus - which is too big for the trailer. I wouldn't give it a second thought. Your choice of TV will work. If it doesn't, it'll be a first.

RCA MAF50. The size of the tv is not as important as the weight. I'm sure there are a few older 19" cathode ray tv's that would either rip the screws out of the wall or bend the arm. Specs say max 40 lbs. You would never want to drive with your tv mounted because I would assume that the specified 40 lbs is for stationary loads. Maybe one of the engineering types can figure out the force of what 40 lbs bouncing is like. Remember, a large sledge hammer is 10 lbs.

We have a 24" Samsung which works for us. Its actually lighter than some other 19".

There was a thread a while back that mentioned ETI recommended removing the TV from the bracket when traveling. We didn't want to have to do that, so we decided to use our own bracket - a MORryde TV1-025H. It is really heavy duty and works great for us. We had ETI reinforce the wall that we mounted it on in our 21.
