Default Wall Mount in Travel Trailer

I am going to install a 22" LCD TV on a small swivel/tilt mount attached to the back of the entertainment center in my Travel Trailer. The entertainment Center box has a 1/2" Plywood back wall in it for the mounting surface (no studs). The movable wall mount has 2 holes in it for attaching it to the wall (back of entertainment center) . At first I was going to mount it using 1/4" bolts through the mount / drilled holes in plywood / and from the back side tighten it down using a backing plate, and nyloc nut.. BUT then I discovered that it will be very difficult to even get at the back side of the 1/2" plywood. My next option would be just to use 2 - 1/4" x 1 1/4" Lag bolts through the mount and into the 1/2" plywood. Do you think that this would be sufficient to hold a 11 lb tv? other ideas or options?s

Switch up to the next size VESA standard mount so you can use four lag bolts. If at all possible - glue another sheet of 1/2 plywood to the existing wall then run your 4 lag bolts. When you drill the holes for the lags, put a dollop of glue into each hole, then screw the lags in. If that baby comes off the wall,,,,ya just been hit by a semi. (hope that don't happen)
