We are contemplating purchasing a satellite antenna for our recently purchased Challenger. On our last two 5th wheels we had Winegard Travler auto dishes installed on the roof. They worked extremely well for Direct-TV HD. With professional install the whole thing can run anywhere from $1,600 to over $2,000, depending on where your TV's are located (in slides) and how many you have.
This time we are leaning toward some type of roof mounted dome model that can be switched between Direct-TV and Dish. Even if we can only get a SD signal for Direct-TV we would prefer to have a dome style this time mainly due to less cost.
During our full time travels we never had a campground where we could not get a signal with a permanent mounted roof top dish. We aren't leaning toward any type of automatic carry out style because of theft issues.
Good luck with your search and decision, there are many possibilities out there.
