Verizon sells a device that you put in your trailer and it gives you a wi-fi hot spot. The device costs to purchase and there is a monthly fee. You must be near a Verizon tower but if you get cell phone service you should be ok. As for TV, the $38 per month in not so much and it would cost that much or more for a basic TV package from Dish or DirectV and you have to get some type of dish to get the signal. I have looked at this same issue with trying to save money and I was not able to find a low cost answer. Good Luck and if you find any options, please let me know. Happy Trails

If you had satellite at home then you could take you reciever with you.
along with a dish for no extra charge.

Correct !! In fact...Verizon has used wi-fi hot spot devices for FREE (on-line ) ..It would be $50 a month for 5g.. And... i am considering the Direct TV Package 3 in Home boxes... and a rv dish.. cable ..and tri-pod..$60 a month
