If you are useing metal mollys be sure to use ones for thin walls. You will see two holes on the shoulder of molly there is a small tool with two tips to go in the holes to keep the molly from spinning, if you do not have the tool use needle nose plyers.

Generally, if you want to mount a TV to a bedroom wall, there will be a specific place marked for doing so. Might have to call the mfr with your VIN to get that, but I've seen a =lot= of RVs that have a sticker on the wall saying "TV Mount Here". G*d forbid that they mount one at the factory.

If no one has suggested it yet, have you considered toggle bolts? They're the ones with the butterfly wings that pop open behind the wall when you insert them into the wall.

One solution for cover up the oops could be the tape that is used to cover adjoining sheets of luan wall panelling *if* you can get in a matching color. The tape is about an inch wide.

One easy way to find the backers is by using a magnet. Some folks have used a piece of wood, plywood or even sheet metal to span a couple of studs. You may not have studs if you have a fiberglass sided FW tho.

I like RV Oscar rivets for securing heavy things. They're a type of blind rivet and have a high holding power. They'd work if you use a piece of sheet metal on the wall and then rivet that to the wall and mount the TV to that. Just paint the sheet metal a color of your choice to blend in.

What you do will depend on the size and weight of the TV and whether or not you're using an articulating mount.
