I had them place the hookup in both places, the refer wall in dinette and the nightstand in by the bed, in the 21. Two hookups, 2 tv's....

That's a TV every 5 1/2 feet isn't it?

I just bought the TV1-025H tv mount mentioned in this thread. Holy cow - that is one HEAVY DUTY mount. The thing weighs 8 pounds! Probably overkill for our little 19" tv, but I like the fact that it locks.

Does anybody know how thick the reinforced walls are on an Escape? We are going to be putting ours in the standard spot at the foot of the bed on our 21' (completion in Feb 2016). The lag bolts that came with it are 1". The bracket mounting plate is about 1/8", so 7/8" will be in the wall.

You will have access to the wall behind that wall since it is inside your closet, very easy to put a backer plate if necessary.

I just installed the same bracket on my 19 into a reinforced wall. The screw made a slight bump on the opposing side of the wall. It's that close. With three screws, I'm pretty sure I could swing on it. If I did it over, I'd get a slightly shorter screw.

Thanks for the tip, Sturski. I think I'll cut about 1/8" off the tips of the bolts and then use a drill stop to pre-drill the holes 3/4" deep.

I have the Jensen 22" 12-volt TV, which I use both at home and in the trailer. I bought Jensen's stand to put it on, and sit it on the dinette table to watch and lay it on the bed when traveling. That way I didn't think I'd need a permanent mount.

This works in theory, but the Jensen's stand is as cheaply made as the rest of the TV, and it broke when I slid the dinette table. The TV came crashing down on my laptop, gouging the TV screen. I was lucky it didn't seem to damage the laptop.

At least when my Garmin GPS fails it doesn't try to take out another appliance with it. I don't recommend this TV.
