No, the LNB is different in the Tracvision, won't interchange. That antenna is very old and outdated technology, you need a new antenna.

For Directv you have to have a full size dish to get all the channels plus HD. Any smaller dish means no HD plus there's hardly any channels anymore when using a small dish. That means either a Winegard or similar automatic dish on the roof or a Directv Slimline dish mounted on a portable stand. I have both.
Here's the Winegard roof mount dish, I have this one. Works great.

If you want to go with DirecTV this is the most versatile roof top automatic antenna avaiable: https://www.rfmogul.com/rv-eagle-tv-1



If that's too expensive then go with DISH Network and a Winegard Pathway X2 portable antenna: https://www.dishformyrv.com/winegard...BoCGn4QAvD_BwE
