I have one in each of our vehicles, and there is no charge for accessing it on my computer. So if a campground has wifi, I can get XM online and plug the computer into the auxiliary jack on the Concertone.

Lightbulb Great idea!

If your car has an XM external radio then a "home kit" would work in your camper too.

From your post I assume both your vehicles has XM permenantly installed in the radios and can't be removed.

I'm thinking about satellite radio to share between the car, the truck and the camper...any suggestions which one I should get and what accessories I'll need?

Content is everything

Look at the basic lineup online for each service and decide.

There is a "Best of" modification to the basic plan that provides content from both flavors of radio. It is extra and not worth it IMO.

I really enjoy my satelite radio even more now that I can use it my camper and my car,, 7769, I had your problem, a Sirius in my car and xm in my new camper, I switched to XM because it fits the docking station in my camper and in my truck. to masonga you will need 3 docking stations one for each vehicle but you can use the same receiver just switch between vehicles

It really comes down to bells and whistles... you can get a plain one fairly cheap and then the more features the more cost.. I had one with all the bells and whistles but it was stolen and I replaced it with a cheaper version and I actually like it better,, the other one had features I never used. but best bet is go online to the website and all the different plans and radios will be there

If you have an IPhone you can get XM or Sirius on it. I just use the earphone jack and plug it into any AUX input and I have satelite Radio... Car Truck HTT and the Boat..... It is a subscription but very inexpensive.

Sirius has some unique content. XM has unique content.

BOTH have the same music channels so that will not be the determiner.

Sirius has Howard Stern and NASCAR.
XM has more sports.

Reception is spotty for both on the both coasts due to satellite location.
Some cities have terrestrial repeaters to help.

In the end, only you can decide which carries what you want to listen to.
