The Trav'ler is HD and 50lbs while the Carry Out 2+ is not HD and 10 lbs.
Well, that's at least good to know, because Winegard told me it couldn't be done, and would 'void the warranty'. Which is nuts.

I guess I'm spoiled. TV for me is for A) The St. Louis Cardinals, without which I would have fatal withdrawals, and B) rainy days, lazy days, weather channel, etc. Those, to me, require HD. I can't imagine no HD. And yes, I'm spoiled like that.

To be honest, one TV is probably enough. DW is actually a bigger Cardinal fan than I am! Other than that, we're flexible watchers. Cardinals, Razorbacks, Vikings, and Weather Channel. Then I'm happy!

That is over the 13'6"!
If that thing does not fold down he is losing it at the 1st overpass.

The Travler folds down lower than the air conditioner and Fan-Tastic Ultra Breeze vent cover.

Looks like a nice system. Does it fold by power or manually?

Folds by power, fully automatic. All you do is hold power button on for two seconds, it searches and locks onto all three satellites. When you get ready to leave, push power button and it folds down automatically.

I added a couple more items over the weekend, Winegard Wingman and SensarPro amplifier. I also mounted a new link transmitter holder (LCI part number 331553) that Lippert came out with a few months ago. It's a plastic holder thats made special to fit the LCI auto-level wireless remote.
