I purchased my new Rockwood in November. I let my Dad use it and he forgot to let the antenna down. Needless to say I had to buy a new ant. I went with the King Jack. It is really nice. I used it last weekend and the reception was great. I ordered it online at Camping World. The best thing about it is you don't have to let it up and down.

I installed the Jack on the stock Winegard arms. It works better than the batwing, but can't comment on how the batwing with the Wingman might compare.

Wanted the Winegard Sensar with the Wingman like I had on my old trailer, it worked great , but my new trailer the AC was in the way so it wouldn't fit. Went with the Jack, because of size, and it worked great so I'm happy. Both of these units are good it comes down to a personal choice and fit.

My cousin wasn't able to upgrade his antenna to HD because it's got a metal roof. I'm just saying call first.

No such thing as an HD antenna. Home and RV antennas are designed to receive VHF and UHF freqencies, and the same ones that were used for analog tv are used for digital broadcast (although most stations are now on UHF).

That the transmission is analog or digital (HD) doesn't matter to the antenna.
