King Tailgater 2 vs. Winegard Pathway X1

I have narrowed down my choices to these two satellite dishes to roof mount on my rv. I'm only interested in hooking up one television to an existing DISH account and I'm a west coast resident primarily traveling in the west coast.

I'm wondering if the new Tailgater 2 will pull in a better signal because I believe it's a larger dish.

I would appreciate any input from folks that have already gone down this route.

my Tailgater from KING works great, is on a removable mount on my rear roof, and can also handle a second receiver(same satellite of course) - I've not yet moved mine off the roof yet, though I've moved it around the roof for the best signal several times. I did not permanently mount it because I knew that there would be those times when trees might get in the way. I have two 2" by 1/4" studs mounted on the rear of the roof that allows the existing holes on the Tailgater(with a little rounding out) to sit down thru. This keeps the unit from moving while traveling, but allows me to easily lift it off it's mount if needed. I ran my coax cables around my rear a/c(for the extra cable length when I need it), down the ladder, under the coach, and out into the we bay to hook to my receiver cables.
To be clear, though, I also have a manual dish for longer stays, where all three of my main tvs can receive any and all channels. : )
