Hi Mary! I do the same as you, pay $5 monthly for the receiver that is in our RV. However, I listed that receiver on our account as Playroom, since Direct TV DOES allow a receiver in an RV..but not all employees you talk to seem to know this! I have even been told by one, who didn't know that it was OK, what I was doing was illegal..and I had to set up separate accounts, letting them know when everytime each account was to be used and the other was to be "cut off". Of course more costly and totally un-necessary according to their own rules.
Will you be traveling alone? If so the cost of the in motion Satellite Antenna would be un-needed. You can't drive and watch TV at the same time.
Ours is the roof top automatic...and I LOVE it. I hope your current antenna works for you. Mine is Tracvision too. I like telling the story of how when it was installed I got pen and pencil and told the installer to tell me, in baby language, how to set it once we were parked. He said "OK...write this down..Turn it on...turn it off"....He was right!! It IS that simple. We have friends who have a King Dome and they have to go through more than we---- and I have seen times with us parked right beside us, they didn't get the signal!!
I saw an Ad yesterday for something for connecting to the Internet from Verizon. It plugged right into the laptop.. Was NOT a card, but a little item that sat "upright"...and the service was only $39.95 monthly. I'm going to check that out. I currently use a wifi card, and must have local wifi service.
Enjoy our Forum, Happy to have you and WELCOME!!!
Happy RVing Y'all! :)
