Honestly, it all depends on what you want. I have the Direct-TV Winegard Travl-r open faced automatic dish which locates all three satellites to include all of my local and HD programming no matter where I am. Yes the dish was a little pricey but, this dish is the best I've ever owned!! I've had a dome dish on other units and could barley get signal in certain areas and if it rained or was humid out, I'd loose signal! With this dish I've gotten 90% signal in very covered areas and have never lost signal in a storm or any other time! I've posted a pic of a place I got signal where I never thought I would but I had 98% on all three satellites! Again I believe you get what you pay for and I love this dish.

I use my Dish receiver from the house when we travel so no additional expense. That receiver accepts two HD inputs so I can watch 2 different changes or DVR one channel while watching another.
Also have you looked into Dishes RV receiver that you only pay when you travel.

If you are talking about the "pay as you go" , then yes, but they still are charging me to buy the receiver from them (or find on Ebay as was mentioned). Taking yours from home sounds like a great idea but would not work for me...I have verizon FIOS at home but as soon as we leave here, it won't be my home. We are hitting the road full time.
