Forest River 08 rockwood 5th wheel

I just bought this trailer about a month ago and was told by the salesman that the antenna is a digital antenna, not an analog antenna. Is this true? How can I tell?

I have owned two other Forest River trailers in the past and they were all analog antennas but the newest one was only a 2005.

Any modern tv will work with the antenna.
Digital antennas are a scam on the public.
Our flat screen TV works fine on the Wine guard crank up antenna on our 2007 Rockwood Roo.

I can't agree with your statement. I had an 05 and using the same tv could not get any decent reception at all. Come to find out it had an analog antenna on the trailer. Bough a small digital antenna at radio shack and got about a dozen channels at my house.

I was told that this trailer, being an 08, has a digital antenna on the roof. I hooked it up using the same tv and now am getting 50+ channels in all nice and clear. Your trailer is shown as an 07, maybe it has a digital antenna also?
