RoadTrip® Mission™ Mobile Satellite TV Antenna by Winegard

In time for the summer RV season, this high-tech antenna makes watching TV in a RV easier than ever. The RoadTrip Mission draws upon every bit of Winegard’s fifty-plus years of antenna design know-how to provide a clear, crisp picture— even in inclement weather.

The satellite RV antenna is simple to use with single-button operation, new adjustable feet for easier mounting and removal and a new plug-and-play cable system for fast setup and installation. For multiple TV RVs, the RoadTrip Mission supports up to two receivers, allowing simultaneous viewing of different programs located on the same satellite. In addition, the Mission works with your existing HD and SD programming from DISH Network®, SD from DIRECTV® or SD and HD from Bell TV™ programming.

RoadTrip antennas automatically switch between satellites as channels are changed and in-motion systems allow watching satellite programming while moving.

“RV manufacturers are making their new models taller and taller. Winegard is working with them to deliver the same TV entertainment experience in a lower profile dome,” said Aaron Engberg, Director of Mobile Products at Winegard. “The new RoadTrip Mission delivers our superior signal reception in a shorter, more compact antenna.”

Mission antennas are available in both stationary, $1199 MSRP, and in-motion. $1499 MSRP, models.    RV owners can choose between white or black domes. All models come standard with a panel mount for easy cable connections, a wall switch and power and coax cables.

The same guy who drove Soulsville to success and helped steer the NBA to Memphis is now driven to shake up the RV park and campground industry with his fledgling enterprise, RVC Outdoor Destinations.

RVC Outdoor Destinations’ Catherine’s Landing park in Hot Springs includes restrooms, showers, a lodge with Wii, laundry room and wireless Internet.

Andy Cates discusses the next phase at Catherine’s Landing, located on a part of an old dairy farm near Lake Catherine in Hot Springs, Ark.

This is a man who’s eager to show RV owners and outdoor enthusiasts how different Catherine’s Landing is from typical RV parks and campgrounds.

So different, he refuses to label his as “RV parks,” calling them “outdoor destinations” instead.

So different, RVC claims to have invented a new category for the industry, one that offers consistently beautiful natural spaces, upscale amenities, and fine-tuned customer service.

So different, RVC clamors for the kind of “segmentation” in the RV park industry that hotels enjoy. Hotel travelers, for example, instantly know from seeing the signs for a Motel 6, Hampton Inn or Hilton what to expect from each in service, amenities and price.

RVC considers itself the Hilton of RV parks.

Starting July 1, Ontario drivers can tow recreational vehicles if they have a full class G licence. This will make it easier for Ontarians to travel this summer and save RV owners about $200 in initial licence costs, according to a government news release.

Until now, Ontario drivers have needed a class A licence to tow RVs that weigh more than 4,600 kg. (10,120 pounds). With this change, Ontarians can tow and operate RVs with a full class G licence as long as:

  • The combined weight of the motor vehicle and RV is not more than the current 11,000 kg limit (24,200 pounds).
  • The RV is attached to the motor vehicle by a fifth-wheel hook-up.
  • Only one vehicle is being towed.
  • The RV meets Transport Canada manufacturing standards.
  • The RV is being towed for personal use only.

These changes will make it easier for Ontarians to travel with RVs, support the province’s RV industry and promote tourism, while keeping roads safe.
