Yeah that's why I mounted mine to the existing old crank up air antenna. Metal acts as a ground plane as well as having the added benefit of using the existing coax ran down to the panel behind the TV providing adequate distance between the two antennas.

I mounted my Wilson RV antenna to the side of my Fantastic Ultra Breeze Vent Cover. It's the highest point on my PUP and luckily perpendicular to the roof. I don't drive with it attached, I installed/uninstall with each setup.

I tried a zboost 560. My local dealer carries them and gave me one to try before purchasing. Works really well. Had to use a directional antenna versus an omni to be able to get out but have 3 to 4 bars. My children can contact us now. We will wait to see if that is a good thing .

I bought the trucker antenna and a handle for a drawer/cabinet from lowes. I screwed the handle to the roof (using sealant) and then used it to attach then antenna to.

I use my booster with a mifi, just place it at least 18" away from the mifi

Being totally ignorant of it, what is the cord from the antenna connect to?

antenna goes to booster to roof, then another cord goes to an indoor antenna. You don't physically connect the mifi to anything. The antenna re-broadcasts the boosted signal inside the rv.

Certain MiFis like the Clearwire brand may not work with Cell Boosters.

Just make sure the frequencies of the booster you get match the frequencies of the device you get.
