Help with sirius radio antenna mount.

Hey all.
Has anyone ever installed the magnetic antenna mount from a sirius radio kit on top of there toyhauler. I have a Sierra 23flspl and realize no place to magnetically attach it to on top of the trailer. Any useful info would be appreciated.
Mike.

You could use a good 3m 2 sided tape on the magnet to attach it.

A trick my dad used to use is to silicone a small piece of metal to the roof as a magnettic place to attach such antennas. Make sure it is painted well so that it wont rust. The double back 3m automotive tape mentioned by Maxpower is a good idea too and probably easier.

The factory XM antenna on the roof of our 2008 Rockwood 8313SS is mounted to a 4" x 4" piece of what I thought was stainless steel that was siliconed to the roof.

Possibly galvanized as magnates wont stick to stainless but good info to know that the factory did it that way. Guess my dad had the right idea all those years ago.

Thanks for all the good info everyone. I am going to try all those ideas. The hardest part about doing all this is that its a 106 degrees outside. Phewww, not looking forward to that.
Thx again.
Mike...
