    I want to fit a little LCD TV to the wall in the van, just behind where my head would b as a driver, so into the coachbuild where it goes out bhind the cab.
    This is the best place for viewing, but is it ok to fix it here?

    Also looking on ebay there seems to be a huge difference in price between 'normal' Tv brackets, and those avertised as being for motorhomes. The only difference can see is that oe is £15 whilst the other is £50:Eeek: Is there any reason why it needs to be a 'motorhome' bracket? will a normal one do?

    Thanks

    No it doesn't have to be a 'motorhome' bracket, but you do have to make sure that when in transit you can secure the TV in place so it doesn't swing around! We got a good bracket off ebay for our current motorhome 3 years ago to attach our TV above a shelf rather than below and just secured it in place with a strap when in transit. Now we're changing vans I'll have to get another one as its going to have to be mounted differently (no shelf).

    Are you talking about attaching the bracket to the actual bulkhead or the outer wall of the coachbuilt, I'm not sure which you mean exactly ...

    And not just the static weight. The mass increases substantially when the vehicle hits a bump - sleeping policeman, for example, and when cornering. The G forces increases the mass of the TV, so this must be taken into account.
