Satellite requires RG6; I would think that a trailer that recent would use RG6. RG59 (which is a lower grade) will work to a certain extent; but I have seen receivers blow their power transformer. The key is receivers send power to the LNB (which is the antenna on your dish), and RG59 isn't high enough grade for any length of run.

If you are just using antenna existing cable lines are fine. Trailers usually have 2 connections. One for sat and the other for antenna or park cable tv tie in.
