In my 2016 3050 I am running an Icom 2730 dual band radio at 50 watts with the magnetic antenna in the passenger side twin bed area. I taped a piece of galvanized tin in a place that allowed sufficient clearance for the whip antenna. Then I stapled aluminum window screen around the perimeter of the twin bed space. Then I simply place the antenna on top of the galvanized tin. The radio is located under the sofa mounted with velco sticky mounts. I will eventually be mounting an IC706 under the sofa as well and mounting a Little Tarheel on the rear ladder. I am running all of the radios from the coach batteries in the steps.

I had a Yaesu FT1900 mounted on a piece of oak and hung in the engine cover console open compartment along with a Comet SS-460SB mounted atop the rear ladder in my old Winnebago. The antenna was only 19" so it wasn't hitting stuff. No plans yet to install it in my new Forester. Too big a hassle routing the wiring to the ladder and never talked to anyone out there anyway. Same with the CB I originally had. I think the west is the dead zone!
I still have the Yaesu FT60 handie talkie and have it programed to scan the local LE and stuff where we camp.
