Winegard Traveler Install

ive searched other forums but just wondering, im about to purchase the winegard traveler, what all do I need to purchase? Obviously the ant, I also see a mounting plate and do I need anything else?

I have direct tv at home, how do I get additional boxes for the trailer, I dont want to pull everything out of the house because there is always someone at home when were gone so they need to be able to watch tv at home

thanks

Antenna and mounting plate will make it easy to install, If you have a little Handyman in you, you can install it yourself, the only hard part is getting it up there and having enough room up there....A lot of calk to seal everything...you can order the new boxes that are wireless and you can get as many boxes you want, you just have to pay that $6.00 a month per box. I have 3 at home and 3 in the RV, I have 4 TV's but the grand kids like DVD's so 3 boxes is it....I have 3 A/C's, so My Antenna is right in the middle between the front and middle A/C

You have too ways to do it, ONE-call Direct TV and tell them you want to start a new location, you may get some discounts.....or TWO call and add to your account.....See which way is best for you on cost and discounts...because the boxes will be in a moving vehicle, Rent the boxes and get the Ins. so if something goes wrong, they can be replaced

When you got the additional boxes did you tell direct tv that the additional boxes were going in your house
