Michelle, I use a similar Wilson setup. I attach my antenna to a telescoping flag pole, which is then attached to our ladder. Not a permanent setup except for the flag pole buddy brackets. One of the campgrounds we frequent, I have to extend the flag pole the full 22 feet to get a signal, most other places I don't have to extend that far. Like you we only need internet and cell to communicate with our business, TV is not really a priority.

If you need specifics on the antenna and pole parts let me know.

22 feet? Do you mean above your roof? I would definitely be interesting in your setup. I don't have a ladder to attach the flag pole to but if you have any pics it might help me see how it might work.

I have this pole:
Amazon.com: RV Flag Pole Kit Motorhome Flag Kit by FlagPole Buddy 22 Feet: Automotive
There are lots of telescoping rv flag poles, with different ways of anchoring them.

Attached to that, I have the Wilson Dual Band Trucker mirror mount antenna with 3 way mount.

I haven't permanently attached my amplifier or run wire. The whole setup as is takes me about 5 minutes. Set up flag pole, run wire into window, plug in Amplifier, then attach indoor antenna. We have a small trailer, so sometimes it need to move the amplifier and indoor antenna around to get the best signal.

This is just for at the trailer, usually in town, I have no problem getting a signal.

I had thought about a small cradle amplifier, but the places I need boosting, I need a bigger boost. Just getting the antenna up higher, helped me a lot.

Cool! I appreciate the idea, looks a lot more stable than what I put together and still keep from drilling any holes in the roof
