Camping World is selling the Carryout for $799 minus $10 (for new and renewal members paying $19.95 for annual fee with a $10 credit) minus $15 (for spending a minumum purchase of $100 until April 13, 2009) for Camping World Members and $888 if you're not a member.
As for the VuQube 1000 (non automatic) this week, Camping World is charging $699 for members (lowest price at Camping World for VuQube 1000 was $599 for members) minus $25 (members of Camping World). To fairly compare "apples with apples" you will have to compare the Carryout with the VuQube 2000 which is automatically and selling $1299 for members ($1244 for non members).
Price wise and specification (automatic), the Carryout is the better bet. However and still waiting for someone who currently owns or have experienced both units prior to purchasing for my Toy Hauler.
Good morning MegaCabby -
I know this will just look like a Winegard sales rep telling you how great their products are but I wanted to share my experience with the Carryout anyway. Around here I'm still kind of the new guy with a web and marketing background, but not much experience in the world of satellite television. So, when I'm trying out a new product it's really a laymen pulling this thing out of the box and trying it.
Last week I took the Carryout to a few locations for a video shoot and hooked it up to film how easy it is, how it operates and the quality reception it receives. After removing the Carryout from the retail box, plugging it into the car outlet and hooking the coax to a receiver the Carryout began searching for available satellites.
In under 2 minutes the Carryout locked on and I had a crystal clear picture on my television. I began to switch channels to find one appealing for the video and the Carryout flawlessly switched between satellites on the fly as I changed channels.
I have quite a few testimonials that our customers have sent us on the Carryout thanking us for another great quality product. I will start putting those up this week for others to read.

What that is referring to is the provider you are on, such as DISH Network or DirecTV. The Carryout comes out of the box setup for DirecTV and DISH Network users can follow the simple instructions in the manual on how to change the system to their satellites.
Once that is done, the Carryout will do all of the work for you. It is a true automatic satellite.
I'm looking at the Carryout and want to find out which network you think works best with the Carryout?. I have had Dishnetwork before with just the dish and it was a problem to set up every time and always had to call to have tech come out to make it work. With the dish 500 it run both tv's in the rv with the Carryout is that the same?
Which service works best depends on what you are wanting from satellite TV.
If you want HDTV, the Carryout will only work with DISH Network.
Otherwise, since DIRECTV offers most of its programming on one satellite it might be a good option.
The Carryout can only look at a single satellite at one time but will move back and forth between satellites as you change channels on the DISH or DIRECTV remote. For a single receiver, you are not likely to ever notice a difference between the Carryout and your home antenna.
However, if you use more than one reciever, the first receiver will control which satellite the Carryout is viewing. This means that both recievers will have to watch the same satellite. They don't have to watch the same channels, just the same satellite.
There's a video on YouTube showing the Carryout in action.
If you watch this and still have questions, please let me know so I can continue to improve the video content. Any and all comments are welcome.

Purchased a Carryout last week. Have tried unsuccessfully four times to get a signal from the system. I have Dishnetwork Receiver Model 322. Called Winegard for tech help and was told to use dual port to the receiver. Still on connection to satellite. We did make the change for Dish network on the switches inside the dome of the Carryout.
Anyone have any suggestions.
Going to exchange for a VuQube, if the problem isn't solved soon.
