Dish Tailgater and bundled receiver opinions

I have decided to get a satellite system for the MH and I'm wondering how others like their Tailgater/receiver package and Dish network's "pay-as-you-go" plans. I'm primarily interested in getting the major networks and probably their least expensive 50 channel programing bundle. Thanks for any input/advice you may have.

I signed up for the Outdoors plan and added local channels. We got a bigger plan because of some if the shows we watch.

I bought a Wally and added the hard drive for recording and pausing live TV. I already had a dome.

With the Outdoors plan, I can use my smartphone and Dish's app to get the local networks where ever I am.

Its a pay as you go plan that costs me $97 a month. That's the same as DirecTV was charging me.

If you are still looking for a dish I have a Winegard Pathway X2 that has never been used. Also have the matching tripod and two Wally receivers (owned not leased). Asking $400 for everything. Located in Fredericksburg, TX.

We recently switched from Direct TV to Dish. We got a Hopper 3 for the house and a Wally receiver with Tailgater antenna for the MH. we got their top programming package because that's the only one that had all the channels we wanted. We are saving $43 per month over Direct TV. Yes, there are things we don't like about Dish, but overall I think it was a good move!

I installed the King MB-700 quick-release mount on the MH for the Tailgater dish so I can easily remove it to use with a tripod when trees block the signal to the MH location. I bought the Dish dual-channel OTA adapter and the Dish WiFi adapter. I installed an external hard drive to give the Wally DVR capability.
