Thumbs up

Yes we travel with it in place. I put a folded towel under it to give it support. The arm does lock in the closed position. The Samsung seems kind of flimsy. The Naxa I had in the Casita was more ridgid and I didn't doing any additional for that.

I am assuming a pretty retrofit.

I'm curious about the standard location of the TV ready option in the 21 at the nightstand. If we never watch TV in bed, should we ask them to position it near the dinette instead?

They will put it wherever you specify, but you should have them reinforce the wall you mount it on, otherwise the walls are hollow (for lighter weight.)

It looks fantastic. Good job.

You might not watch while in bed, but you may want to consider where it's mounted and is out of the way. Having it mounted in the dinette may partially block a window, make it difficult to get in or out of the seating area, etc.

Thank you Donna. There's always a good reason why things are placed where they are! Our build sheet is due next week so I'm double checking everything before final sign-off. As for the TV location, sounds like it's best to leave it where it is.

You can get TV jacks in both places. We did thinking two mounts and move the TV. With the swing around mount we find that unnecessary. Just a thought. As the say YMMV.

About $2.00 I would guess.
