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.

I have this model which was supplied by ETI. I need to get an additional wall mount bracket. I had the tv ready set up in two places. One by the bed and another by the dinette. The mount only came with one wall bracket. I canít seem to find where to order another. I really didnít want to purchase an entire addition mount just to get the wall bracket. Any ideas??!!

Keep looking, I have seen dual mount kits for taking the unit outside or elsewhere ...

Manufacturer's website is http://readyamerica.com. Maybe try contacting them to see where you can get an extra bracket.

I bought and installed that mount. I am TV ready in two locations, and love that it is super easy to take the TV down and stow away. It worked great the one night in 14 months of camping we used it.

We do suspect we will get more use out of it in the future.

I feel your concern. I actually wound up buying two sets from Escape so I could have the two wall brackets installed in our 21. Consequently, I have an extra arm stored somewhere.

Fred,


Where did you mount your TV? I have a 19 inch Furrion TV with a built in DVD player.

Thanks Ralph and Paulette! I sent an e-mail and got this response. Good afternoon Mark,

You can purchase the additional wall mounts directly from us, our item number is MRV3500B. Each wall mount is $8.99 plus shipping and tax (within California).

Have a wonderful day,

Wow! I have been eyeing the Furrion models. Let me know how you like it.

We have a 24Ē Insignia from Best Buy. It does not have a built-in DVD player (boo), and does not rest flat on the wall (thatís OK). But it has great quality and we watch MP4 movies via the USB Port.

Here is where Escape mounted my wall brackets:

Does anyone have a photo of this mount with TV in a 5.0 in the standard location that Escape installs? Will a TV installed on the mount tuck in under the cabinet below the bed and over the mattress when not viewing?
