Entertainment Mounting?
« on: March 07, 2017, 10:47:26 AM »
It's clear my C-Class wasn't setup to have a TV in it, much less a DVD or Blu-Ray player. Since I want to treat this like a home, I want to add those in. Has anyone seen a fixture I can have hanging down from the ceiling which could mount a 20ish inch flat screen and hold a Blu-Ray player? I want to have this just beyond the kitchen area, facing the back with the benches / storage, and the table.

( Cheap please )

Will one of these work for you?

SeilerBird, your suggestion comes closer to what I was thinking. What bums me outside cost is you have to have that exact setup ( the TV & player ). I want to be able to pick my TV and add in the player. I'm sure a little LG Blu-Ray player I have could be mounted given proper setup.

Fantastic idea!!!  Even more so if it allows the tv to rotate as needed.
How will I find ceiling studs (?) to attach it to?

This is the first one listed in the Walmart link. https://www.walmart.com/ip/Ematic-Black-Folding-TV-Ceiling-Mount-for-TVs-23-42/28773640 I ordered the same one off Amazon and mounted it under a cabinet. I used a 1x8 stained to match the cabinet and secured it under the cabinet to mount the TV bracket. It has ridden 15000 miles without issue and it swivels. It actually is made so you can push the TV up against the ceiling and it locks out of the way but that doesn't work when it is mounted under the cabinet.

Search swivel tv mounts on Ebay and you can get these for about 10 bux.!

I'd also look into a tv with a built in dvd player. it will save you $$ and space.

My older class C (Fleetwood Tioga) must have had an older tube type TV at one point because there's an opening just to the right of the stove between the stove and refrigerator. I built a frame to attach to the inside of that opening with L brackets. There's a 2X4 in the middle of the frame. I bought an inexpensive ($12) motion mount on Amazon that will work with a TV up to 40". I bought a 24" Smart TV (which is plenty big) to attach to the mount. I can pull it out enough to swivel in the direction of the sofa or dinette or even somewhat to the back bedroom (although it's at a pretty good angle). When I travel I push it back against the outer frame of the opening and I can wrap a flat elastic cord around the inside frame and around the TV but usually I don't. I have a couple of 2-3" pieces of velcro on the back of the set that holds it pretty well against the cabinet. So far it hasn't come loose. Now if I could only figure out how to pick up local channels with the antenna on the RV...

Hee hee not due to the verbal explanation. You got your entertainment setup to work for you :D. But looking at two of those pictures. From one geek to another I give you a thumbs up Bozopolis!   8)
