Winegard Satellite Ladder mount

I got an email from Winegard that the ladder mount for the Pathway X1 and the Carryout 2 is available again. I've tried the window mount and had to return it because of the Class C over hang. Thought I might give this a try, but the ladder is flimsy and they say you can mount it temporarily or permanent. I think temporary would be a better option. Has anyone tried it, especially on a Sunseeker or Forester as the ladders may differ in size, strength and mounting?

We used the same ladder mount on our Solera (which is basically the same as the Forester or Sunseeker). My husband used extra braces that are identical to the ones on our satellite dish on our residence. I hope the photos are clear enough to show what I'm talking about. I cropped them in to focus on the ladder mount.

Thanks aspengirl, that's exactly what I was wonder about, needs an extra support. Looks like you have it locked also, how did he do that and how did he secure the sat permanently to the base?

Aspengirl, Any chance you can post a closer photo of the braces? Also, do you leave it up there while traveling?

Most of the portables have indentations or small holes already in bottom....if holes, just tap them out and add bolts

If it's ok, hubby will go take some better pics in the morning and we'll get them posted for you. Hope that won't be too late for you. Yes, we do leave it up there when traveling. I've followed him on a couple hundred mile trips and it rides nicely. Good and solid.

The lock is one of those little padlock cables (coated), and there's just the one bottom bolt through the base holds the satellite onto the base.

We'll get the exact info on the braces, too.

aspengirl --Haven't ordered it yet. Have Amazon Prime 2 day delivery. Will order braces and mount together. Thanks so much for the info.
question, did you run the cable along the roof and hook it up to the connector up front?

Very interested to know how you ran the wires back to the ladder from the front. On the roof? under and up the ladder?

Great. Unfortunately my cable and 12V is in a slide room which presents a few logistic problems. The wires are fed in from the bottom under the slide. I have access of course through the cable hook up in the side where I have already run a 12v plug. Just trying to figure out the best way to get the cable to the back. Either on the roof or under the belly. Either way it's a pain in the butt.
