Need to hang 42 LCD in moving vehicle..

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I am building a trailer for tailgating duties this football season. The side of the trailer will swing upward and inside the side door will be a 42" Visio LCD. My question is, what mount will give me the most stability? I need something that can take the vibrations of pulling the trailer to and from the parking lot without it falling off it's mounts.

Any suggestions?

I wouldn't be worried about it falling off the mount, I'd be worried about the vibrations of the road ruining my LCD. Doesn't seem that it would take too many trips before something would come loose in the TV.
Don't know if you've ever ridden in a trailer like that, but it's not the smoothest.

Well, I'm not going to worry about the vibrations because I think the LCD would stand up far better than a CRT and I've never had any problems with one of those. I'm going to worry about it falling off the mount, that is why I am asking the question.

Thanks

It is unlikely that you will ever see the image outside. Reflections will render the display useless. For enclosure and mountings, check into ITS Enclosures in Mt. Pleasent PA.

I will see the image outside because there is a flip up awning over the shadow box that will be built into the side of the trailer.

Guys, this is not for citical movie viewing, people will be drinking beer and casually watching pre-games and games. Glare will not be an issue, we used to have a CRT sitting on a tailgate and they have much more glare.

The LCD will be fine. If they can stand being on Missin:space at EPCOT they can take some road vibration.

If it were me I would build my own mount and use some rubber isolators to absorb some of the road vibration!
