Vehicle laptop mount

Can anyone recommend a nice and inexpensive laptop mount for a 2002 F250? I work out of my truck and it'd be really helpful to have. Most of what I've found is $250 or more though, and I really don't want to spend that much.

Thanks in advance.

I looked for a while. I think that is about what you are going to pay and it will limit the front to back movement of your passenger seat.

Or, if you or someone you know is talented, you may consider building a new lid for you flip down center section.

I have the Ram-Mount and love it. It does NOT restrict the seat movement. Pax or driver can use it, all kinds of adjustments. You can add other items to it if ya want, like a GPS holder, etc. Here it is:

I have the Ram-Mount in mine too and am very happy with it. It's very secure and holds the computer firmly in place. I also got the quick disconnect (RAM Quick Disconnect | Vehicle Mount | Laptop Mounting | Tele-Pole) for it, and makes removal a breeze. When the pole is out, the base stays bolted in and does not interfere with the seat or passenger foot room at all.

The only thing I did to mine was cut the telescoping pole down a little bit, rather than buying shorter poles. It was a little higher than I liked at its lowest position, so I just made it not so tall. I've still got adjustment to move it up if needed though.

It is a little more expensive than some others, but I have zero complaints with it.

Laptop mount.

I know you are looking for something cheap but The mount that I went with you can cut and adjust without messing up the warranty if done the right way. you can make it fit and look good at the same time Universal Vehicle Laptop Mount System RAMVB168SW1 - $269.99 : just something for you to think about. Mine has seemed to work out just as i need it to without a problem.

Nice recommendation, but you do know this thread was posted almost four years ago, right?

I have the RAM mount. It bolts to the pass seat base mounting bolts. Adjusts up, down, swivels and has flat sides so you can mount accesories.
