    Tailgating TV Question

    Our group is upping our tailgate this year, and we are adding satellite tv to our setup. We just bought the tailgate satellite package so we are all set up on that front. My question is how to mount our tv. We are planning on using a 32" flat screen that is about 24 pounds. I have seen others mount a tv in the corner of their tents, and this is what we would ideally like to do. After a little research I can't find anything that seems to be made for tailgating. What has everyone here done to mount your tvs?

    We've just put ours on a sturdy table or in the back of a SUV.

    We are planning on using a deep cell battery. We've heard to expect about 4 hours of use, which should be plenty as its just for tailgating before the game and its not an RV overnight situation.
