Best way to install antenna through roof?

We have a 2015 404RB and I am installing a combination 4 wire antenna to support WIFI, GPS and Cellular. The link is below:

3gstore.com/product/4414_4-cable-thru-roof-cellular-gps-wifi-antenna-white.html

Since this must be mounted on the roof, is there a best pathway to get the wires to the dash? I see the sat TV plate and the FM radio antenna already there and I was thinking about installing just to the driver or passenger side of the roof near the FM antenna. I see that the cabinets are too far forward to go straight through the top of them so I was hoping someone could provide guidance. I was hoping that a path already exists.

Thanks!

I worked on this yesterday and I found an access panel behind the upper front cabinets on the passenger side. Opening the panel, I found quite a bit of existing cable runs and a power source (used for the DVD). The antenna was mounted on a metal bracket behind the cabinet and the access panel was reattached. Because the front cap is fiberglass, the signal for the GPS, satellite radio and cellular is excellent all with no drilling the roof!
