We have a tailgater, had one for years. Works great if, and it is a big IF, you can get a clear shot at the southern sky. Too often we must choose between a quiet shady site and a more open sunny site. We take the shady.....that may be a legacy of living most of our lives in Phx where one ALWAYS looks for shade. Still, I would recommend the talgator to anyone looking for reliable tv on the road. Dish is the only outfit that lets you go for just one month at a time. The minimum is one month but that is a lot better than 12 months which is what Direct demands. Also, remember that you will not get local channels unless You call Dish and request them. Your subscription is tied to your home location and you cannot view your home channels unless you are in their area. You can request the local channels in the area where you have stopped, but that can be a minor pain if you move around a lot.
