I have Dish at home so to add it to the RV if you have the receiver in your RV too was only an additional $7 a month on your home plan. I use it sometimes but I found if you have a good HD antenna on your RV that in many places you can pull in 10 to 20 HD channels without having to go the extra yard for a satellite receiver.

We have DISH, we are full time rv'rs and love our dome from Winegard. However, we live in the U.S. and when we go to Canada we cannot use it ( I would like to know how we can watch Satellite when we go to Canada for a month. Any ideas?

That's strange. I have DirecTV and use my systems in south Florida, upstate New York, southern Ontario and all points in between. 18" disc in Canada, 18" dish on the RV, 3 LNB 18x20 in Florida and upstate New York. Satellite doesn't know where the receiver is at any given time. Works flawlessly. Local channels...only within the spot coverage in south Florida.

Dish should work fine in Canada. A lot of my family have it here.

Could you not find signal or was it another issue?

I have a portable dome so maybe that has something to do with it. Plus I go to Nova Scotia for a month, no where near the U.S. border.

X2 RooVader's report. We have been successful getting HD signals when neighbor w/Direct couldn't get a signal thru canopy. In the open may not be an issue, unless you want HD signals.

Good lock, and safe travels.

We have Dish at home, so we use them for camping also. We originally bought the 211k receiver and a tailgater about 4 years ago. The receiver stayed in our motor home until the receiver quit in our den about a year and a half ago. Then we moved it into our home and take it back and forth to the R-pod that we now own.
The tailgater is easy to set up. You just have to make sure that you have an open sky to the south. Actually I have been able to pick up 2 of the 3 satellites even under the trees if I have enough patience. I have read though that the new Wally receiver is an all or nothing receiver and you get all 3 satellites or none.
You might have trouble telephoning Dish as not all their customer service reps are familiar with the tailgater. I always ask and if they say no or don't understand what I need, I just ask for a supervisor or for someone who is familiar with the tailgater. I have always been able to reach someone who can help even if it takes more than one rep.
Either will work fine for camping. It's just your personal choice.

Direct TV

I do a lot of camping and I know that the service you get from direct TV is far more superior as to dish and trust me when you need them you need them. I myself have had direct tv 17 years now I use it everywhere. I have 4 receivers inside and out on my camper. but you defiantly want to pay the extra money for a stand alone self syncing dish like King Happy Travels /Happy Camping

Dish

We just added our portable dish to our sons account for $7.00 a month. It was costing us around $60.00 for one month before just to activate it.
