    Our tv is on a triple arm bracket on the side of a top locker so it can be watched from the over cab bed, or the dinette.

    Trouble is, when watching it from the dinette we get horribly stiff necks, as it's too high.

    Now the bracket itself is quite nifty, as you can simply lift the tv off the end, as the VESA plate is in two parts allowing this.

    So -- what I'd like to do is fix another, identical bracket to the underside of the locker over the side seat so we can simply move the tv from one bracket to the other - simples!

    But can I find one? Can I 'eck as like!

    If I have to buy two new brackets that wouldn't be so bad I suppose, but the only ones I have seen have the whole arm removable from the wall mount, not the tv end.

    Hope that makes sense. Anyone any ideas?

    Can you adapt this to your arm set up

    Thanks guys!

    Was thinking about something like that one, Geo, but andyman has found the very thing I've got on my tv already! Well done that man! Your ebay-foo is obviously much better than mine! :Laughing:

    Now need a good bracket that tucks away neatly under the locker when not in use...

    I suggest one of these would fit the bill for under the locker:

    TV bracket 1

    or

    TV bracket 2

    We used the first type in our Rimor motorhome but installed it 'upside down' as it was fastened so it sat on the upperside of the shelf which ran full length at the end of the transverse bed as there wasn't room to mount the TV anywhere else due to the shelf anyway. The bracket with the TV attached rested upright against the wall when not in use (a securing strap was put on it) and when we wanted to watch TV we just tilted it forward and slightly down and it worked a treat. The bracket has a securing 'clip' which will keep the TV flat up against the base of the locker when travelling if required.

    Thanks Minx, thought they'd be the answer, but then realised my lockers have fairly deep pelmets, so I'd not be able to clip the tv on and off the bracket.

    Only answer I can think of is to mount the bracket on a thick piece of wood to bring it below the pelmet, but that would look horrible.

    Thinking maybe of just mounting the tv to a flat bracket fixed to the wall under the locker, and covering it with a picture when the tv's not on the bracket!

    Ok, have found, and taken a punt on this one.

    Have measured up, and with any luck when it's bolted to the underside of the locker, the clearances will be ok to enable me to clip the tv onto the bracket and also for the tv top to clear the bottom of the locker pelmet when the bracket is swung down.

    Fingers crossed!
