Yep, apparently they are one and the same.

The weBoost 4G-RV boosts your whole rig's area. BUT, it comes at a compromise in that the antenna is directional; meaning you have to aim it when you get to your destination. I'm lazy and am all about minimizing my setup/breakdown for travel. And, the bigger downside - it's only available from Camping World (boo) and is backordered (extra boo).
You can purchase directly from Weboost or Amazon and bypass Camping World...

I have been researching this same topic for about a year but have yet to pull the trigger on this...

Unless it opened up in the latter part of this week, you can't buy the 4G-RV from anywhere but Camping World. For that particular model, the only buy link is for CW.

bottom left direct from Weboost BUT looks out of stock there also
https://store.weboost.com/collections/boosters-vehicles

OR

https://store.weboost.com/products/rv-4g

I doubt Camping World has it exclusively...??? but maybe

EDIT:

looks like the link is to Camping World but I would still call Weboost

I noticed that... Camping World link thing ...
but how about this direct from Weboost?

How does this differ from the 4G-RV kit? besides price?

WELL...
I did more digging and answered my own question...

I looked at the PDF document described with the 4G-RV and saw all the individual components that come with it... then compared it with the other link I provided which I see includes the 4G-X amp and accessories...

then re-reading the posts, I see ependydad already owns a 4G-X...
Quote:
I will very likely sell my 4G-X when this finally comes to market and is proven.
so my question to ependydad is...

Do you think this new amp with the 4G-RV kit will give you anything more than maybe just adding an accessory indoor or outdoor antenna won't give you with your current 4G-X amp and setup?

and ... Have you dealt with Wilson directly on your previous amp/device purchases and have you been happy with your purchases?

thanks for your time ependydad , you obviously have been doing this already...

I haven't had the setup for long but have been reading about them for a while.

I think there are 2 things about the RV kit that make it "better" than what I have:
1) a directional antenna will always perform better than an omnidirectional antenna BUT at the cost of requiring setup at each stay. You have to decide if that's a hassle or acceptable.

2) it provides a boost to a tremendously bigger area than the Drive 4G-X. For the 4G-X, you have to have your device (phone, hotspot, etc) within 1'-2' of the indoor antenna. The RV-edition boosts inside of the whole rig (and presumably some spillover outside). You can combat the 4G-X limitation with Bluetooth accessories, but again- you have to decide if this is a hassle or acceptable.

The negative to the RV edition is if you have a motorhome and want to use it while underway. It cannot be used while underway and requires that you be stationary.

Personally, I'm still holding out hope that Max Signal's Max Amp comes to market soon and hits the promises that they've made. IMO, it's the best of both worlds- BUT, it has been "coming soon" for what sounds like a year now.
