How big a television in a 5.0?

From somewhere in the dark and dusty corners of my mind, I seem to recall the maximum size for a television (mounted so it swivels around to face the bed) on the 5.0 was 19" inches. I'd love to try a 22" screen in there (they are currently on sale). Anyone with a 5.0 think a 22" would fit?
Thanks;
Dave

Sure, it will fit size wise. Just make sure you remove it from the arm when you are traveling (which we do any way) so the leverage on the mount doesn't remove it from the wall. The weight is the limiting factor, not the size (well, up to a point....no 60" 'ers please!).

Hi: Garand... Our TV Toshiba 19" is mounted over the pantry cabinette. Due to the mounting arms location it just clears under the light fixture, then locks onto the wall for towing( 11#'s) but will still swivel round to be viewed from bed albeit low at the foot. It also extends out from the wall on the arm to near the bathroom door to view from the dinette thanks to the remote!!! Alf

Hi: Garand... The only problem with the location and size of our TV is that it restricts the access to the bed. Sometimes in the night if I forget to unlock and swing it to the corner my foot contacts the TV. In a small space "Size really does matter" . Alf

I talked to Tammy and, as you have said, a 22" TV will fit. We bought this Vizio on sale:

The interesting thing was it weighs only 6.2 pounds (minus the base plate)
