Digital antenna replacement

OK antenna here will not get anything it is an old 2011 digital factory antenna, came with the RV.
Anyone know any good brands was looking at the
King Controls Jack RV Antenna Replacement Head - White OA8300

Any suggestions this one says it will mount to the old antenna mast or arm.

What kind do you have now; crank-up bat wing or otherwise?

A couple years back I bypassed the factory antenna altogether. I added a Clearstream 2 mounted to an adjustable painters pole mounted it to the ladder on the back. It works great and I can adjust the direction easily to pull in channels.

It's hard to beat the batwing antenna for OTA reception. I did replace my batwing with a Razar Z1 that mounted on the batwing crank up stanchion and even though it was not superior to the batwing it is not worse than it. It is a plug and play antenna with no modifications to the batwing installation necessary. The King Jack is the same. I think using either antenna attached to the existing crank up is superior, overall, to not using the crank up mechanism for these antennas and instead installing the fixed height versions. That's my experience.

Well got the clearstream 2 cold here now so just tried it out of the box inside the RV. Picked up six channels but not the local ones the wife wants. When it warms back up I will try and figure out how to get a cable inside the RV at the back. Hoping if I mount it on the ladder we can get the local stations we want. The factory antenna would get nothing. Stay tuned

Well mounted the clearstream 2 outside on a painters pole attached to the rear ladder. WOW found 39 channels and the local channels come in clear and good. Would recommend the clearstream antennas to anyone. When we get back to the stick house I will buy the clearstream max for the house and DUMP direct TV.
