What is 3rd antenna on roof for?

We were looking at a 1997 Winnebago Brave yesterday for a family member and noticed it has three antennas on the roof (plus of course the TV antenna). Two are in front and appear to be for the radio and CB. The third is a rubber stick style antenna right about in the center of the RV roof.

Could that be a radio antenna for the outside entertainment center or an old cell phone antenna? Our 99 Minnie has an outside entertainment center but only one antenna.

The owner has no clue what it's for. I'm wondering what it could be. Any ideas?

Might be for a cell phone, or xm Radio, or an external am/fm add on radio

Thanks. It occurred to me that pictures would likely help .

I'll try to post some over the weekend if the SNOW isn't too deep. 4-12 inches in the forecast. Welcome to Colorado!

Probably for the outside radio. Our Adventurer has one in the middle of the roof for that, and the dash radio has its own rubber duck rooftop antenna mounted over the cab area.
