MikeS is correct. It is model MRV3500 from Ready America.

I have the one supplied by Escape which looks the same as the one in the above link. I also just purchased a few weeks ago a similar mount from Amazon for my other trailer. https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B01...?ie=UTF8&psc=1 I paid $44.99 Cdn for this new mount and found it to be better made and more robust than the Escape supplied mount.

Several people (including me) have used this one https://www.amazon.ca/MORryde-Intern.../dp/B00AZS8PMM. It locks the TV in place so it doesn't have to be removed for travel, as is recommended by Escape for their bracket. Note that it needs to be mounted to a reinforced wall.

I bought that one and returned it - it was too short to allow the television to swing out enough on my 21. It's really well made - just too short for our install.

We now have this:
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

It locks down when traveling and the 25" extension lets me watch TV from the dinette as well as retract to watch from bed. The TV is mounted above the drawer stack. It also must be installed on a reinforced wall.

I have had success with the corners on regular walls since there is reinforcement there.....

We can watch from the dinette and the bed in our 21, but our TV is only 19". Might be an issue with a larger TV.

You are right - our TV is a 22" wide screen.
