    Hey guys. So I'm waiting on chips for my new Pete to be finished. I'm actually use to volvo and don't know anyone who currently drives a newer one. I'm trying to see if a 43" TV will fit on the wall where the mount is. I will replace the mount that comes with it, just don't know if a 43 will fit there. I've tried searching and could never find an answer. I want to get everything for it now, so when it's here, I'll be set. Thanks in advance!

    Or would someone be kind enough to measure the back wall to the closet and bottom to bottom of top bunk please? That should be able to answer the question.

    I am not at my truck but I had a aluminum rectangular frame built for the passenger bunk wall
    Have it bolted to the cabinet and bottom of the upper bunk with a pullout swivel mount so I can swing it to the center more as my driver seats swivels
    Then I put in a Bose surround system and the two small speaks sit on the bottom of that frame and the sub box behind the pass seat
    I think I have a 36” tv but I have room. Just wanted to be able to still get to my side vent
    Works great.

    43” would be huge just from a looking at it stand point. I put a 32” in the 670 I had and it was huge as you can only get so far away from it. A big smart TV, a hard drive with movies and portable internet if you can do it is decent an awesome investment though.

    Yeah. I have a friend that drove a new one 2 years ago, and had a 42", but he said it was tight and couldn't remember if a 43 would fit. All he did was change the mount, but had it on the same wall. It wasn't a swivel, but I don't think you need one if you're just laying in bed.

    Here you go

    I’m thinking of doing a wood shelf for the speakers and either a wood or matching vinyl wrapped around the aluminum but I’m also looking into ordering a new big bunk so not sure that will happen

    I have a 36” TV and looks like I could go to 40”+ but as others mentioned. Too big is too big
    I have the Maxmiser Long Haul $$$ but worth it in every way!!
    The driver seat swivels and reclines, with the mount I have I can swing it out and kick back in the seat Vs always in the bed
    The Bose system sounds really good, although I try and be respectful while watching movies of others drivers I haven’t yet jumped out to see if it’s even noticeable outside, my truck has the artic pkg etc so it’s pretty sound proof an quite inside so I’m guessing it’s ok outside
    Pics aren’t the best but you might get the idea

    If you run a headphone cord into the radio aux input from the tv out you can play over the trucks speakers and maybe not need a soundbar or speakers.
