Depends on the Vehicle.. For example I do *NOT* have a driver's side door, so I took a 2x4, did a but of cutting and staining, and mounted it using screws that sink nicely into the frame studs.

Then mounted the CBs and a Ham radio and some other stuff to it.

HOWEVER: Problem with water if the window leaks depending on precise position of radio.. I now shield the one that has issues.

Home is where I park it!

Even though I have three working old units and an old Cobra base loaded whip. I bought the $99 Cobra all in one CB. Then I bought two of the through the glass antennas and two power adapters. I move the CB/microphone from the MH to the car depending on what I am driving.

This all works well enough for traffic info on the road. If I was still an active ham operator things would have been allot different.

Have a CB prep package installed while you coach is being built, and ask where the antenna should be mounted, or tell them where you want it mounted.
There is a wall-mount for MH's that most folks mount just behind the driver, in front of the slideout. The antenna cable and 12V wiring are stubbed out from under the dash next to your left foot. My OEM antenna is roof-mounted, wish it was on the drivers wall, I could use a Firestik antenna instead of the crummy 12" wire on the roof.
