I added a Wingman to a TT three years ago when they first came out and recently to my new MH. Install involves removing 4 rubber bumpers from bottom of antenna, holding wingman in place and snapping in 4 nylon clips. 5 minute or less job. (Wingman has its own rubber bumpers built in) . Package says it fits all Winegard antennas. Can't imagine why it wouldn't fit, except if there is an obstacle when it is lowered. On my TT I slightly bent one of the wings to avoid a skylight. Still worked fine.

It took me longer to go up the ladder than to install the Wingman

No, only one size. Not sure what he meant by "larger antenna" either. If it is not a Sensar by Winegard the Wingman won't work for you.

Update

The top portion on my antenna is shaped more like a football than a egg shape as shown in the directions. The holes/tabs do not line up.

Below is a copy of the antenna shown in the directions - note height difference with either end. Both ends on my antenna are the same height; therefore, is not egg shaped.

I got a refund for it for now. The RV store said to bring my RV in (after summer) and they will take a look to see what's going on with it. If they can install it I will rebuy it again.

I believe I have the same antenna you do.
It seemed to fit fine for me.

I thought it look similar to mine but couldn't enlarge the pic to double check. My best bet is to pay the $7.50 for the other service departmen to install it. I rather not be on the ladder so it's worth a few bucks investment.
