I can understand your aversion to drilling into the motorhome, in my case I mounted my weboost m2m booster antenna front and center through the fiberglass front cap. My thought being that in the case of my coach it is a solid piece of fiberglass with no chance of hitting any wires when drilling, and the back side was accessible through the top of my front center tv cabinet. Also if it is ever removed it is very easy to patch fiberglass and an exact color match is not important on the roof.

My WeBoost antenna is not permanently mounted. I use pvc pipe with suction cups that raise the antenna about 3 ft above the roof and run the antenna wire through a slightly open window. Takes about 7-10 minutes to mount. I don't use it often so this arrangement works well for me.

The previous owner of our RV had gone through the roof to install a Sirius antenna so I went next to that. I have one of the 5" magnetic antenna so I got a piece of 12 x 18" steel from Home Depot and glued and dicored that to the roof for the antenna. I too could get to the cap through the front upper cabinet so ran it that way.

Where did you install your weboost

Depending on your roof type (rubber or fiberglass) there are a couple of no hole options. For rubber see RVing with Tito (https://youtu.be/3s44z3fzJsA) for fiberglass see RVGeeks (https://youtu.be/APHIlkTdWLo). I used the VHB route on my fiberglass roof.

I mounted my "trucker style" antenna to the slide topper attachment arm. I ran the wire into the slide opening, and zip tied to the slide lock arms so the wire folded with the lock arms. If I were to do this again, I would put a hole thru the roof.
