Cell signal boosting and types of equipment and antennas

Hello all,
Just starting my research on boosting cell signals in remote areas....
My basic question is;
Are most campers OEM antennas capable of being used with signal boosters? or are they not strong enough....ie, high gain antennas vs standard antennas.

Campers don’t come with antennas for cell service. Which is why boosters come with specific cell frequency appropriate antennas.

RVs come with TV antennas and sometimes radio antennas but neither of these are appropriate for cell carrier frequencies.

A quality cell booster has one antenna that is either mounted on the roof or attached to the ladder. It has a coax cable that goes inside and connects to the actual booster (cable in port) From there another coax cable is connected to cable out port of the booster which connects to an indoor antenna. The indoor antenna then broadcasts the amplified signal to your devices. The antennas that came with your rig will not work.
