After some extensive research, I settled on the weBoost Drive 4G-X Cell phone Signal Booster. weboost (formally Wilson Electronics) is the manufacturer of America's strongest cellphone signal boosters according to FCC submissions. They make about 7 different models specifically designed for RV use. They start off in the low $100s, but the model we bought is at the upper end. We reasoned that internet connectivity was something we couldn't skimp on.
|weboost Drive 4G-X Cell Signal Booster|
- Amplifies cell signal in your car or RV for up to 4 devices
- Works with all carriers and cellular devices simultaneously - USA or Canada
- Fewer dropped calls and lost connections
- Faster data downloads
- Longer battery life
The unit comes with a small magnetic antenna used to mount on the outside or your car or RV. It also has a low profile inside antenna that will broadcast the boosted cell signal 3-5 feet to your phone or personal hot spot and switchable power adapter that plugs into a 12v outlet (cigarette lighter). We found it worked best to lay the iPhone directly on the inside antenna.
I also purchased a Spring-Mount Antenna with 13.5 - Feet Rg58 Cable and Sma Male Connector to permanently mount on the rear of our travel trailer for better reception. Since the weboost Drive 4G-X mounts in a bracket making it removable, we are able to use it in the car while traveling. I use the magnetic antenna to mount on the car.
