    I finally found a mounting solution for the 19" LED TV in our 2011 Santa Fe Cp. I picked up a Rocketfish under cabinet mount and flipped the TV to mount hardware on it to make it work. For those interested in the mount, the part number is RF-TVMUC01 and a link is below:

    http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Rocketfish%26%23153%3B+-+Under-Cabinet+Mount+For+Most+13%22+-+22%22+Flat-Panel+TVs+-+Black/9881886.p?id=1218190733681&skuId=9881886&st=cabinet%20mount&cp=1&lp=1

    First I slid in the back bed and put the mount up against the back of the bed to verify fitment. Next I slid the front bed in to be sure that I had enough clearance. I had enough room to get a finger in front and back of the mount so I marked the mounting holes. I drilled a hole slightly larger than the hardware and installed it (sorry, forgot to take pics of the hardware :/ ). I have yet to check the height vs the roof when closed up, but if there is an issue I can have the whole mount out in a matter of seconds so it is no big deal.

    TTIWWOP soooo, here ya go!

    Camped the first night with this setup and it works great. Cleared the ceiling with room to spare as I thought.

    Not really, it is only about an inch higher than the bed so the blankets I leave on cover it up. Being right next to the door there is not much in the way of canvas there anyway. I can actually still spin it with the top all the way down so there is a bit of clearance there.

    Just popped up to let it dry out, put her away wet this morning [{:)]

    Checked out the canvas and the roof for any signs of rubbing, sure enough, there are small marks. I will be taking the mount off for trips as this trip was only 15 miles each way and showed signs. We normally go 150+ miles.

    Yes it is. I do not think it was rubbing enough to worry about, it is mainly color from the blankets transferred onto the vinyl. Either way, glad I checked.
