You won't regret getting the RF Mogul. Sturdily made, great tech support and completely repairable in the field. Plus you get that cool blue LED shining into the sky :-).

I am surprised they haven't gained a stronger hold on the market. I guess Winegard is more recognizable to many (been making TV antennae for years). I believe as more folks get RF Mogul units, they will start to become more popular.

I can guarantee if I'm ever in the market again it will NOT be Winegard.

The $400 price spread may have something to do with it.

I am sure it does but in this case, IMO you get what you pay for. When I had my Traveler removed and replaced with the RF Mogul, I had the opportunity to inspect both of them up close side by side. The difference in overall build material, sturdiness and quality was obvious. The turret mechanism on the Traveler was loose and floppy compared to the much more rigid mechanism on the RF Mogul. Plus all the brains for the RF Mogul is contained inside the controller box which is inside the coach. Much of the 'controls' for the Traveler sits under the turret.....hard to access if repair needed.

Well the Trav'ler on the trailer has been in use for 4 years with no problems. The Bounder Trav'ler is 1-1/2 years in use with no problems and the Bounder dish was only $1200, that is a $700 spread. It is your money.

I buy things that work so that I don't have to fix them.

I'm glad you haven't had problems with your Traveler Dish ... We haven't - it has actually been replaced now 3 times and it is still a piece of garbage. We have an AZ Motor Stall error now and that equates to the dish pointing straight up (like an EL error, but much worse). Means I have to take the dish down, send it to Winegard (my dime); $75 for them to diagnose it and give me an "estimate" to fix it. Could run as much as $1200 plus shipping and reinstallation. No thank you ... I'll spend the $1,850 for a RF Mogul and pay to have it installed and be done with it.
