37FLL internet

Just bought a new 37FLL on Wednesday. Haven't had anytime to actually go through it to see what the 4g internet entails. Curious if it has the winegard on top or if the booster is on the inside. Like I said before. I have had zero time to look over the trailer at all. So if anyone can help with this that would be great. And if this sounds confusing to you. Just ask me to clarify.

From what I have seen, almost all of the time with a built-in system that is capable of cellular data, the SIM card goes in the antenna unit on the roof.

You might want to be more specific as to which system(s) are installed in your unit.

WiFi Ranger, now part of Winegard, has systems compatible with the Winegard Air 360+ called the Osprey that has the SIM card installed in that device. The Air 360+ is prewired with everything needed for the Osprey modem with access inside the RV, on the ceiling below the Air 360+ antenna.

A great resource is https://www.rvmobileinternet.com

This unit is prepped for 4GLTE wireless Internet. This means you get the Winegard 360+ external antenna. My 2020 FLH only came with the Winegard 360, but I understand all Sabre's from 2021 to now include the Winegard 360+.

The 360+ includes a cellular omni-directional antenna to which you can attach a MiFi hotspot, or WiFi Ranger type router. That said, it also includes a WiFi router of some type (Could be an LCI or WiFi Ranger - which model I couldn't tell you because depends on what was available to Forest River's Sabre Division at the time it was built) as part of that prep, but without a necessary SIM card from a wireless carrier for Internet. I would opt to use the 4GLTE router and 360+ antenna that comes with it and purchase a SIM card and wireless carrier data service plan.

Thank you very much! This was a huge help.
