That's pretty much what I have been doing for years, just tired of unlevel ground, getting old and lazy.

I think the tailgater setup is great ! But only limited to one receiver and I am pretty sure it also does not work with a dvr ?

all my receivers are hd dvr's

The tailgater looks a lot like a re-branded VuQube to me. FWIW I love my VuQube. Makes life so easy if you have the money ditch the tripod and move on, it's well worth it.
