Does anyone have a CB or two way radio in their camper?

I put a 40 channel CB in my tow vehicle. I want to put a rolling home base station in the trailer. I have a 5 ft Firestik Firefly antenna for the RV unit. I'm stumped as to where to mount it, for the lack of metal on the camper to place to ground wire. Does anyone else have a mounted antenna on their trailer? I could use a mag mount but again, the lack of metal is an issue. I can't hardly put an antenna way down on the trailer bumper where all the metal is.

Thanks again, everyone. You're very kind to help a newbie out.

Not much metal in some RV's. A potential solution is to get another firestick and a dipole adapter like below. This can be mounted vertical or horizontal and doesn't need a ground plane.
