Television Mount

I am considering placing an articulating television mount in the main area of my Aerolite 282DBHS instead of the fixed wall mount. This will be an easy job but I want to know more about the tv backer panel that is there now. Does anyone know what that backer board is made of or approximately what size it is? I'm only installing a light weight 32" flat screen that will be removed for travel, but I am curious to know what I have to work with behind the paneling. Has anyone removed their paneling to see what's there? I would do that if I had an idea of how to do so without ruining what is there. Any thoughts or comments? Thanks.

I don't know what its made of but it supports my 32" fine. I actually used two different mounts (one articulating one not) so I can lift it off the arm and move it to the bedroom. I also don't remove it for traveling and have not had any issues.

I think I put pics on my mods post but it is also on my site myaeroliterv.com

That is exactly what I'm looking for. I purchased a mount from Monoprice.com and it came at a very nice price point but was heavier than my spare tire. So I don't feel comfortable using it. Now to decide if I want to pay $77 to get the one you used. It really does look nice though. Thanks again.

When we installed our tv mounts, we bought some lag bolts and went all the way through both walls and cut the excess off with a Dremel tool. We don't remove the tv's for travel but we do tie them down with a 1" ratchet strap.

If it's like my Aerolite, there's only a couple of 1x4's that are not well secured holding the tv up. I remover the cover panel and added a top and bottom plate (like on a stud wall) and doubled the 1x4's, so theres an actual 1 1/2" to lag a mount to. I do take the inside tv down, but I did the same thing outside and my tv stays up while traveling with no problem.

There's some pics in this link.

I eventually said, "To Hell with it" and mounted a 12" x 12" piece of plywood to the wall and then mounted my tv mount to that. Nothing is going to move after that. I still plan to take the tv down when we travel anyway. Thanks to everyone for all your help.
