Weboost for RV and home

I have been researching Weboost for my RV.. the WeBoost Drive 4G X and really feel this would be a great option for my RV. However, we are not yet full timers and would like to have a unit at home that I could also transfer to my RV ... Back and forth... but, not sure you can really do that. Has anyone out there done this and if so which model did you choose and what did you do to make it work especially at home?

I don't have the WE Boost but have been researching them. From my understanding the exterior antenna for home and rv would be different. The home antenna would be directional and the rv antenna would be omnidirectional. The booster unit could be moved between home and rv. The interior antenna for home and rv could be same but usually the vehicle interior antenna is not as powerful because the needed separation between interior and exterior antenna is less.

Hope that helps..

It sure would be nice to have something to port between the RV and home, however due to the nature of your application which is RV'ing and that necessitates to use a firm installation of your outdoor antenna and that means a hard install. If you don't mind the extra work involved in un-installing the external antenna and internal antenna then get a home version of Weboost or Surecall ( which i have seen work best for RV's) and make sure you have an AC outlet in the RV to plug in and you , yes you can use one for both applications!

Install the applicable antennas in both home and RV, plus power source. Then just move the radio unit back and forth.

The regulations as far as power is concerned from the FCC a home a permanent-based system has more output then a mobile system. I believe legally you could us an RV systrm at home, but you are not supposed to use a stationary system in an RV while underway. While the RV is parked, I'm not sure the rules. A quick call to WeBoost could Sprite out.

The RV, magnetic mount antenna is under $20. You could leave one permanently on the RV and one on the house and just move the booster unit back and forth.
