There's a lot to be learned about Mobile Internet. People shouldn't expect anyone here to assemble them a shopping list, everyone's needs are different. A good place to start figuring out what you need is the Mobile Internet Resource Center they have up to date information about equipment and plans- they also have a Youtube presence-
Also check the campground reviews at Campendium website, the reviewers rate the cell service besides the campground so you can check that before choosing a campground when traveling.

Google Fi voice plan $20/month unlimited talk and text, plus $10/GB up to 6GB, and then free data. Same style router as above.

Google Fi data only, $10/gb up to 6 GB, then free data as above.

Last Google Fi bill ~$83.

The reason for 2 Google Fi accounts is that the original ZTE router doesn't have band 71. I ordered the WiFi Ranger Denali with the CAT4 modem with band 71, and gained the rooftop WiFi radio as well.

The reason for the ZTE cell routers and the Spruce router is that I require some wired Ethernet jacks in my motorhome.

The Verizon phone I consider a sunk cost because I use it as as my main phone, and tether only when needed due to poor ATT or T-Mobile coverage, or slow/non-existent camp WiFi.

And, yes, I do have a 2 line POTS phone in the equipment cabinet connected to the 2 routers, as backup if out of Verizon range.

So, about $150/month, not including Verizon.
