How to Install a TV in Your RV

Has anyone done it? How did you mount it? Were you able to access the cabinet space the old tv was in? How did you trim it out?

ANSWER Hi Fred, how you install a LED/LCD TV in your RV is purely up to your ingenuity. There are so many TV Mounting Brackets available that you can mount the TV on a swing arm bracket mounted to a cabinet, or a flip down bracket mounted to the ceiling or even a stationary bracket mounted to a wall in the RV.

Below is a video that outlines how easy it can be to do a new installation of a TV in an RV.

Here are the MOR/ryde TV Mounts mentioned in the video.

If you are trying to mount your new TV on a cabinet in your RV that you do not believe is sturdy enough to hold a TV mounting bracket securely, you may want to watch the video below to find out how to properly reinforce the cabinet so that it can hold the bracket.

If you do decide to install a flat panel TV in the old TV cabinet, you may have to hire a carpenter to properly modify the cabinets to fit your new TV as most flat-panel TVs are in the widescreen 16:9 aspect ratio, which will not fit properly in a basic square cabinet. Of course, if you have some basic carpentry skills, you should be able to modify the cabinet yourself.

If you don't mount your new TV in the old TV cabinet, you can convert the old TV cabinet into additional usable storage space. Watch the video below on how easy it is to convert your old TV cabinet into a storage cabinet.

I had a Starcraft RV without a TV. I installed one and shot a video on how I did it. You can see it on youtube here:

Good Luck!
