Robert,
In the last picture, where the wall meets the refer wall, appears a loose piece of something hanging, or is it the woodgrain causing the look? Can you explain, thanks?

Actually in some jurisdictions an open concept room the size of the 19 with a convertible sofa is rated as a studio apartment. I prefer mobile bachelor pad with aluminum wheels

Are you referring to the white cord/guide for the window shade?

It took me almost two years to learn how to scale and post photos on this site. I'm just happy that my first pix featured (reasonably) clean feet. Given the nearby wet bath and all

No, it looks like a scribbly line between the wood buttons in the corner.

I'm borrowing your idea of fold up extensions on both walls. My tv is going in the rear corner with a drop down mount.

Depending on how well the antenna works, I might build an undercabinet shelf in the middle of rear window to store my dvd player and satellite receiver. Did this in my Casita and it worked out great. Looks very good and the tv is viewable from the kitchen area.

I found out yesterday that the tv amplifier has 2 outputs so Reace is running a coax through to the front dinette overhead cabinet and we might just have TWO televisions. Such luxury sounds awfully "Winnebago'ish"! Maybe I'll add a etched mirror of a swan and feel like I'm "luxuriating" in a 40' Sunblocker!

Do you need 110V ( full service site or generator ) to run the TV or power the antenna? I'm trying to understand.
My TV runs on 12V or 110V. The 110V cord steps the power down to 12V before plugging into the TV. I can run it on the 110V in full service site or off the battery with the 12 V cord.

And I might borrow your idea of a hanging mount off of the bottom of upper cabinet in the corner next to the fridge wall. I've been using it on its pedestal on one or the other foldout tables but putting it away for travel gets old real quick. I haven't seen any wall mounts that look robust enough to take the weight of the tv while travelling mounted to the fridge wall and I don't want to take the fridge out just to reinforce the wall..

Got a link to the mount your using for your application?
