Try eBay and jet.com for a portable dish kits and you can use your reciever from home you do not have to buy one. That's what I did and works just fine.

Can anyone tell if this is a good receiver and would it work in our coach...or do you have any other suggestions?
Why not just buy the dish and transfer the house receiver out to the RV? I have done that for years with no problems

We actually have two dual TV receivers in our house but they would be pain in the butt to move because of the way they are hooked up and located. Believe me I thought of that but ruled it out. I'm just gonna get one of those cheap receivers and pay the $7 monthly fee next summer but thanks for your input...

Don't pay the $7/month for their "leased" receiver. The Dish 211z receiver is great and probably what they would give you and costs less than $100. It doesn't take long to recoup the cost and no rental fee required if you are going to keep it for a year or longer. And when you are done with it sell it back on Amazon, eBay, or Craigslist.

Even if you own the unit Dish charges a $7/month connection fee.

We weren't paying that fee or the $40 fee to enable the DVR function.
Cable companies, phone companies, and doctor's offices bills can always be negotiated.

Glad that you could get it but I had no luck on that point since I am on the cheapo welcome package for $19.99 a month.

We had "that plan" several years ago for the first year but somehow the bill in June of this year had morphed into $66/month.

Mine is less than $29 a month with 2 receivers...one at my mother's and one in my RV. The last time they raised my bill I complained and told them when it hit $30 a month I was done. That has been several years ago.

So we just got DISH after 30 years with TWC EEEEEK
We have a Pinnacle with 2 TVS.
We have the premium package for home so I would LOVE to know how to negotiate and not pay per month for RV use. We haven't purchased a tailgater our anything yet. PLEASE help me out with the least expensive route for the RV. (All purchases needed) We travel once a month and plan to leave out again on Thanksgiving afternoon.
