That must be the kit to change the old style Direct TV Traveler to the new SWM model. The kit I was referring to for the Traveler for $300. from Winegard changes the Direct TV Traveler to a Dish Network Traveler. It has a new arm and LNB's to make the change over.

Entegra only installs the Traveler for DirectTV. However Direct does not offer "pay as you go" service for those that don't want a 2 year contract. Dish does, so some do the Traveler conversion.

The SWM kit shown would not be needed for a factory installed Winegard Travlr. They are shipping the newer SK-SWM3 dish which has the SWM built in. The kit shown from eBay would only be needed if a person wanted to upgrade their older directTv antenna. As Chuck said if you want to change the factory installed SK-SWM3 DirectTV antenna to work with Dishnetwork you have to buy a "kit", really a new reflector and feedhorn for about $300 from Winegard.

Yes that kit I posted is for the old style DTV Trav'ler. Since the OP was about getting a DTV dish on his new MH and not anything about Dish Network.

I guess I was answering TVformyRV post for the SWM kit he posted. I was just saying they may still be some of the older SK-3005 dishes still unsold out there. And still in stock. There may still be some of the old Trav'lers that only got the 101/110/119 out there someplace also.

Now to change a older SK-3003 or SK-3005 DirecTV dish to a Dish Network dish. You need Winegard SKA-KT1 kit

Winegard doesn't show any kit to convert the new SK-SWM3 for Dish network use that I could find. Only the 2 older type 3-5 LNB ones I posted above. But maybe I missed seeing the one you are posting about.

This was a quote from Tech support and it is two separate parts that are required, which Dave mentioned earlier. It is not an advertised kit, it is the same parts used for the SK-1000 for the DishNetwork Traveler. You would be converting a Direct TV to a DishNetwork Traveler.

Triker is correct that there may be some SK-3005s and even SK-3003s laying around in stock, however none of those are going to find their way onto a new Entregra assembly line.

Converting Travler antennas from one model to another is somewhat limited.
Suffice it to say that you can convert either from a SK-3005 or a SK-SWM3 to a SK-1000. If you convert a 3005 or SWM3 to a 1000, that antenna can be switched back to the 3005 or SWM3.

However you can not convert any original SK-1000 or SK-3003 to a 3005 or SWM3.

To convert a SWM3 or 3005 to Dish SK-1000 you need two kits from Winegard, RP-SK11 and RP-SK21. If you have a really old 3005 (very early production model) you may also have to make a couple other changes, but those antennas are pretty rare.

The early production SK3005s can be determined by the display on the control box. If it says “DTV SLIMLINE” it is an older version. If it says “LG DTV SLIMLINE” then it is the newer version.

Pricing on the two kits is around $295 plus shipping.
