I want to install a CB radio on my 2001 Southwind

I have an old CB Radio from the 70's it works so I believe If I wanted to mount the antena on the forward post by the driver is there a way to run the antena wire to the CB?

I ran mine from there, (different coach though) I had to remove the trim running down the post, then ran the cable through.

I went with a magnet mount on my 87 class A. The cable went through the gap of the hood through the dash right to the CB. No muss no fuss just a clean easy install.

Use a through the Glass Mount such as this one, won't have to drill any holes I mounted mine on the drivers side above the slider.
