When we bought our first dish we bought a Tailgater. We keep our trailer at home so we hooked it up there and noticed the signal from the tailgater was a little better than half of the signal of our fixed home unit. We used it on 2 trips and had issues with the signal quality and changing satellites so we decided to exchange it for a Pathway X2 and had a much better signal but still struggled with it changing satellites and regularly loosing them.
We went ahead and ponied up for the Trav'ler a couple of months ago and now get the same quality as our home unit. We spend over a 100 nights a year in the trailer and usually only stay a few days in 1 spot that's why I decided to go with the Trav'ler.
Like has been mentioned since the Tailgater is small and portable it will have some downsides.
