I am considering fitting a bracket for our TV in the caravan.

We have an Adria 542dl.

Can anyone recommend a brand that is suitable?

 

Many Thanks

 

Terry

Buy a bracket that suits your tv and ensure that you have more than enough reinforcing behind the panel where you want to fix it. I would choose a bracket that lets you clip the tv on and off, so it travels off the bracket thereby reducing the strain.

Depending on size of tv and where your putting it there are many on ebay. I got one for our 19" lcd tv and fitted it to the side of our cupboard i used nuts and bolts instead of screws and used a piece of plywood cut to size for added support on the inside of the cupboard. Hope this is of any use to you

I don't see how the brand really matters, what you need to buy is a bracket suitable for the size of tv and then consider what you are fixing it to to make sure it's secure.

Thanks for the info.

The brackets i have seen have been for wall mounting using rawlplugs etc.

At the NEC  i noticed a caravan with a bracket fitted but didnt check the mounting used.

I suspect it was something like mickyd suggests but wondered if there is a support out there designed for caravans

I found a length of veneered chipboard, very similar to the interior finish of the van, about 6"wide (piece of shelving IIRC).  Glued and screwed this to the wall panel which provided a solid base for the tv bracket.  I also screwed in a couple of small cup hooks, so when travelling, I fold the bracket so the tv is against the wall and hold it there with a bungee cord from one hook, over the front of the tv (with a suitable cloth to protect the screen) and up the back to the 2nd hook.

As it is, the piece of chipboard is hardly visible behind the tv anyway.

Yes, I did a similar reinforcement job but still remove the TV whilst travelling. To stop the arm swinging about I stuck it back to the wall with velcro pads.

I did much the same as above, using a swivel arm bracket, but I also purchased a small f2 part fixed wall bracket, I bolted the wall part two the face plate of the swivel bracket, (needed to redrill a couple of fixing holes), and the face plate to the back of the tv.This allows me to just lift the tv off the bracket for storage and slide it back on on-site.

I have fitted one to my last two Adria's. My current one is also the 542dt.

I have uploaded photos of mine. I have fixed it so that it can be used in the longe but can also swivel for use at the side dinette. I got it from ebay for around 10 delivered. It is bolted in rather than screwed and has some felt sandwiched with some large 30mm washers to stop the bolts pulling through. I have a bungee strap that hold it in place during transit.I also fitted mini Tv's to each bunk.

Thanks. It's worth spending the time and do it properly rather than bodge it otherwise it will bite you when you come to sell on.

You can get quick release units where you are able to remove the tv from the wall still secured to the bracket and not run the risk of damage when on the move.
I have one fitted to my van.
I secured the bracket with bolts and a metal plate to give extra support.
