Our latest video provides a complete overview and step-by-step installation of the WeBoost Drive 4G-X cellular booster, including our custom flat-mount of the spring-loaded 4G-OTR truck antenna on the roof of our RV.
While the standard magnet-mount “stubby” antenna is probably fine in the majority of situations, we opted to upgrade to the spring-loaded trucker antenna for the increased performance. Since it’s not really designed for an RV roof, and we didn’t have another suitable location to mount it, we came up with our own solution. While there are surely many ways to skin this cat, we’re very happy with our results.
Your installation may vary based on a number of factors, including antenna choice, mounting location for both the antenna and the interior booster, and the type of roof material on your RV. We cover all of those variables in this overview and installation tutorial.
