mounting tv bracket 19' 2016 Escape

Where is the best place to mount the bracket that holds the tv (19")? The DVD/CD/Radio player was mounted by Escape over the bed, by the large frig.

I didn't like the refrig wall install so used a Pro Mounts undercabinet mount and put it back in the corner over the bed, visible from the dinette without swinging an arm around and fooling with dangling wires.

Pix if you want.

Thanks for your reply! Not sure what "pro mounts" are. A picture would be very helpful.
thank you for taking the time!

Presumably Promounts, but I don't see anything to attach to the bottom of an overhead cabinet, which is what I would guess "undercabinet" would mean.

It screws into the bottom of the cabinet and hangs down. There's plenty of wood in there to anchor it but you'll need power and access to a connection. I had all that run during the build.

Get you a picture when I get to my laptop. Trailer just sold so I can't just take a new photo.

Greg, thanks for your reply. I had Escape put in the connection for the Colfax cord/cable TV and a outlet on the wall where the frig. is in. They also installed the DVD/CD/Radio player in that corner also, but would not hang the bracket for the tv. Looking towards the front of the trailer it's in the left side overhead cabinet above the bed. Would love to see how you did it when you get a chance to send a picture. Thanks for your help!

This is best I can get today. The mount is made by Premier Mounts, well I was close. $48 for a black one from Amazon. The chrome one looks best but has been discontinued, I have one if you want it. PM and we can talk about that.

I also made a shelf that dropped down from the overhead cabinet above the back window where I stashed a blu-ray and sat receiver. Overall, it was a really decent setup that worked well and looked good.

Try to get a picture posted tomorrow.

I'm using a locking wall mount on the fridge wall of my 21, not a drop down mount because it wouldn't work with a U-shaped dinette back there. A drop down mount in the back d/s corner of a 19 is really a nice, versatile location.

Greg, thanks for the picture. Escape sold us a mount that looks somewhat like the one in your picture that you sent, except it's a wall mount not a overhead mount. So, from what I am seeing and hearing is that I WILL HAVE to put my wall mount in the corner where the frig. is and low enough where it fits in below the cabinet and above the bed. Does that sound right? Doing that we will not be able to watch the TV from our dining table, which is no big deal, but it would have been nice if we could have. Do you know if that corner has enough support in it to hold the weight of a 19" TV? I'm new at this and drilling holes in the wall especially by the frig. makes me nervous.
thanks for your help, looking forward to your other picture when you have the time.
thanks again!
Larry

Both of my 19's had the tv on the bath wall by the dinette area, the bed area seemed to confining.

Hi Larry . We saw Gregg's setup . Very nice setup . We did go with the Escape tv arm on our 19 . It is installed on the fridge wall . We have a 22 in TV . It will swing around to view when we are sitting at the dinette . We have also removed it and placed at kitchen sink area if we were going to watch a movie or tv show . Mostly set timer on tv and go to sleep with it on . Watch a little tv maybe at breakfast .trailer is a small space so it isn't hard to see tv . We went with Escape arm because wanted a bigger tv . Gregg's set up was good too . Pat
