Winegard is the one we are looking at. As long as the DH has TV it doesn't have to be HD

Leisure, Auto Systems, TracVision A7

I have this system. Works great! You can entertain the whole RV park watching it set up...something out of Star Wars. Like IlliniJoe said, it's pricy but, it does work well.

I also use the wineguard carryout automatic with tripod and pay-as-you go Dish service.

http://www.winegard.com/carryout

Generally does well but I find I have to reaquire satellite feed every 2-3 days. Have it secured with a cable lock. Just input local zip and it does the rest.

www.web.directv.com

If you go under RVs, it has the links for the three manufacturers, that support Directv. King Controls, KVH Industries and Winegard. Hope this helps.

It tends to lose satellite 110 or 119 after 2-3 days and I lose some stations esp HD. I usually leave it plugged into my TT outlet to reacquire signal as needed. It doesn't always require download of programming. Takes 10-15 minutes max.
Mowing crew also move it once weekly and I have to redo everything. It's not very forgiving of any movement beyond a fee inches.
