BURLINGTON, Iowa – (March 6, 2009) – Winegard’s new Carryout™ Automatic Portable Satellite TV Antenna will be available at RV dealerships and retailers starting March 16th. At only 15.6” high and 20” diameter, it is the most compact automatic portable satellite TV antenna on the market.
A perfect partner for RVing, camping, boating, tailgating, races, wooded areas, cabins and vacation homes, the Carryout antenna can be used anytime, anyplace. RVers will be amazed at how easy the antenna is to set up and operate. No extra remote controls needed or buttons to push – the Carryout is 100% automatic! Runs off of 12V and plugs into a vehicle’s standard cigarette outlet.
“We are excited to be offering a fully loaded portable antenna at an amazing low price ($899.00 MSRP), especially with today’s tough economy,” said Aaron Engberg, director, mobile products, Winegard. “At hundreds of dollars under the competing brand we are confident the Carryout will be a sought-after product for many RVers. The great part is customers can use the Carryout for so many other activities, not just RVing.”
