King Tailgater is for Dish and King Quest is for DirectTV. I have the Tailgater and and two receivers and it has been working great as long as I'm not in a fully wooded site!

Thanks Gargoyle. I thought it could be used for either. I was actually going to get one. Lol. Guess not.

I have Direct TV and a Winegaurd 1st gen carryout. Never had any problem receiving a signal even in wooded areas. We had Dish but they started squabbling with AMC and so we switched. BIG Walking dead fans.

Have directv with traveler. Pay an extra $13 per month for two receivers. Get the same programming as home. Traveler is not cheap but for us the total bomb. Spend at at least 24 weekends in our unit for work and use it for fun. Traveler well worth the money. Just push a button wow!!

Just got the King Quest for DTV. Have not tried it yet other that in the yard. Taking a receiver from the house. Have not hard wired ours. DH made an opening for the cable inside where the trashcan door is...hooked up an A-B switch. Works perfectly. Called our dealer about wiring it for us. $500 plus parts!!

Use a King Flex model for Direct, it's what we have here at home.The Flex also works for Dish. I bought, off E-bay, A receiver to leave in trailer, came with remote and new (worthless) card. To activate, called Direct, gave them the receivers id number to make sure it wasn't on Amarica's most wanted list ( leased unit with out standing bill that was owed), gave 'em account number. Receiver free and clear, so they sent me a program card with same package I get here, cost's $6.00 a month and, can de-activate (like Dish) if not being used...I leave mine less thing to do) The Flex is an automatic find the bird thing.....When we went to Nashville Rally last summer, had to call them to make it receive east of Miss. River..don't and didn't ask why... King says to use 50' rg6 cable, but have had 100' on the run and didn't notice any pic. problems...Not HD, I don't care...

I recently bought a tailgater dish and dish receiver. I too have cable at home and dish you can do pay by the month where as no contract. Just turn on when you want to use and cancel when your not using it.

I have DIrect TV works great for me have had for over 20 years on all my rigs - use kingdome - enjoy auto setup set it on ground with line of sight plug it it in and good to go ---

Another option if some of you are grandfathered in on the unlimited IPhone plan - and have internet at your home ---Sling Box works awesome - stream all the channel you get at home to you tv in you RV in clear HD where there is cell service of course ---

Att is now offering unlimited plan for $100 with direct tv or 180 unlimited for 4 Lines - this is a great option - just need a internet ready tv or Apple TV box or google stick or fire stick to stream from your iPhone, android

I use about 30-40 gigs a month streaming from my slingbox - so you defiantly need an unlimited plan for this option
