Depending on your type of mirrors they also make mirror mounts.

But I did see some hood/fender mounts on EBay.

Post # 12 is a direct link to what I used on a 2000 E 450 Class C.

I mounted a 4' fiberglass as far forward as it could go,
just as the finder turns down.

So far I have gad good reports with that mount and

I just need to decide what length of antenna to get.....I am leaning toward the 3' version which should give me 12" to 18" above the RV.

Here is the companies page for the kits:

It is important to remember that a ground plane is not the same as an electrical ground and although your return coax might be grounded because your radio chassis is, what your ground plane is providing is a something for the RF your antenna is radiating to "push" off of and go up into the air. I've found that NGP antennas might work for short range but they really shorten the distance you can expect for decent communications.
