The Best Satellite TV Antennas for RVs and Tailgating


This post is the fourth in a series about the spectrum of products and technology offered by Winegard Company


Portable and roof mounted satellite antennas provide users with flexibility and choice. Users can set up their TV at the campsite, or mount the antenna on their RV roof. While satellite antennas have become more economical in recent years, Winegard’s antennas are recognized for their build quality and value. For example, Winegard’s metal reflectors are resistant to temperature changes, generate a stronger signal and are designed for high efficiencies. Antennas that have high efficiency maximize signal strength and minimize interference. Winegard is proud of its vigorous testing process for reliability and ruggedness in environments where vibration and harsh weather conditions are a factor.


Winegard also takes pride in a specially designed roof kit for portable units that allow the units to be easily installed on an RV roof. The kit is designed to maximize antenna performance, and the system meets stringent criteria to withstand the shock and vibration that occurs when mounted on an RV roof. Here are some details on Winegard’s satellite TV antennas:


Carryout G2


The Carryout G2 is Winegard’s #1 portable satellite system. It is the only portable satellite system that is compatible with both DIRECTV and DISH right out of the box, and no conversion kits are necessary. Users can feel free to change program providers without needing a new satellite system.
The G2 takes portability to a whole new level with its ultra-lightweight sleek design at 10 lbs. and 13.5 inches in height. The G2 is the smallest satellite system that is 100 percent automatic. Its product material and construction are the best in the industry, with the dome, base, reflector, motors and electronics all designed and manufactured to be rugged and reliable. There is a roof kit available for the G2, consistent with Winegard’s stringent criteria, that allows the G2 to be mounted to the roof of an RV. The G2 is easy to set up in only minutes.


Pathway X1 and X2


Winegard’s Pathway X1 and X2 satellite antennas work with DISH. The Pathyway X1 has the same superior construction and top quality materials, motors and electronics as the Carryout G2, and also includes the specially designed roof mount kit. Likewise, the Pathway X2 is built out of high quality materials and is stringently tested. It is the only high gain portable satellite antenna available that views western and eastern arch satellites. If the signal is blocked due to obstructions, like trees, the user has the option of viewing satellites in another direction. In addition, this portable satellite system offers the most local channels. The X2 has the strongest signal strength available which minimizes rain fade performance issues.


RoadTrip Mission


The RoadTrip Mission was designed to specifically be mounted on the roof of an RV. The low profile, high gloss domes and sleek design make the unit appear as if it was part of the RV. The enhanced antenna design is a “high gain” antenna that provides outstanding performance, even in inclement weather. It delivers easy one button on/off automatic operation with DVB technology for fast and accurate satellite acquisition. Winegard RoadTrip In-Motion models enable RVers to watch live programming as they travel down the road.




Winegard’s top of the line, roof-mounted TRAV’LER automatic multi-satellite antennas provide the same satellite TV viewing experience in the RV as in the home. It is the only satellite antenna on the market that is capable of viewing multi-satellites at one time. With most RVs equipped with more than two TVs, the TRAV’LER is perfect for families with different viewing needs. The TRAV’LER is great to use with DVRs, enabling users to watch and record from different satellites simultaneously. The TRAV’LER allows the maximum HD programming for DISH, DIRECTV, Bell, and SHAW DIRECT. It is the only solution that allows an RVer to receive DIRECTV HD.
