RVing & TV

Does anyone know of a good Dish network sattelite antenna & receiver combination to use when traveling with an RV that quick to set up and take down. I have the Dish network hopper & joey system in my house but I'm finding in some research that they are not supported by the different style RV style antenna's that I'm seeing advertised. Thank you for your help.

I use the the Hopper at home, but purchased a VIP 211k for the motorhome. New model is 211z. Wineguard has several options of portable domes. The latest works for Dish only. I think it's called Pathway 1. You can purchase the whole package receiver and dish. Check amazon for prices. I have the roof mounted one and it works great if no trees in the way.

Thank you for your input, I'll check out the equipment you mentioned. Sounds like a good way to have TV in the MH without too much hassle.
Thanks again,

I too would recommend the VIP-211K NOT the 211Z however. This works with the Tailgater or with a Winegard Pathfinder x2.

These are portable antennas where you basically set 'em on the ground (or on a small tripod platform) and they work.. No need to level or aim or anything, they do it all.

If yo want multiple receivers however or a multi-channel DVR, you need a dish. and those you have to aim.

Thank you for your info. I won't need multiple receivers or multi channel dvr. Do you know if the Tailgater will work with the hopper? No big deal, I am going to purchase the Tailgater and the Vip 211K receiver. I might record a bunch of programs on my hopper and take it with me and hook it up directly to my tv to watch those programs.
