Help Mounting TV for 2018 Coleman Light

Good day! Does anyone have any experience and/or tips to installing and mounting a new tv on a Coleman Light 2605RL 2018 travel trailer? I know there's a sticker that says "mount here" but I have no idea how accurate that is nor what's behind the panel to mount into. Any help would be appreciated!

If it's an interior wall panel, I would pull it off to be sure. It should just be stapled on. They are notorious for putting cheap thin wood as TV backers. This may be critical if you plan to leave the tv up while traveling. I reinforced mine, but I also take my tv down during travel.

NP, here are some pics of what I did, basically just did a header and doubled up the TV supports.

Don't trust the sticker. Where mine was on the interior wall, there was nothing.

I have a different model I had 3 tv locations two on outside walls with stickers. I used a quality stud finder to make sure there was something sold behind the sticker. In my case there was. I would use the smallest drill bit you have to to test your drill location. If you hit something solid I would pre drill using a debth gauge to not go too deep stay under a inch.

My main tv was inside recessed wall between the bedroom and living room. I found that it was backed pretty well for a large mount.

I would not scrimp on the mount. Get one that locks in place.

I cut a piece of finished plywood the size of the area, then stained and polyurethaned it , I mounted this on the inside wall, then mounted the TV on it. I did locate a couple of studs mine might be different I have a CTS 16 FB model Coleman
