How much clearance is needed for the TV so that the articulating arm will work properly? I'm thinking at least an inch at the edges...would that be about right? Also, my wife is interested to here opinions on patio mats to place under the awning. Name brands, good points, bad points, should it be just big enough to fill the area under the awning or is there any advantage if it is bigger/smaller?

I went with a 23" LED but needed to put a 3" ( a piece of 3x5 alum tube) spacer to get rotation since the tv is the same or bigger than the opening.

As for the mat I'll be watching your post as we are shopping!

For patio mats the cheapest I haver seen is at Walmart. My mom has one and it is just as good as the others that are more money.

We have a patio mat that is 9'X18'. I bought it several years ago from a guy who was selling them at the local RV show. Can't remember if there was a brand name on it. it cost less than anything from CW. It is woven polypropylene so it doesn't soak up waterand not a problem if it is hanging out from under the awning. It is made from 3 panels stitched together so if it looks like it will be really rainy or muddy we just fold the end panel under so it is only 6' wide. We spend a lot of time outside under our awning so we wanted the largest we could find.When it is time to pack up we just sweep it off, fold it up and store it in the underneath storage. We have never had a problem with it being "wet". We are going into season 5 using it and it will probably be the last one. Not bad for $60. They guy who was selling them hasn't been at the show the past couple of years so not sure what I'll do for areplacement next year...
