TV Antenna Replacement

I had a Winegard Rayzar z1 on the roof of my fifth wheel until a low handing branch knocked it off. I would like to replace it in the spring. Any suggestions on a replacement tv antenna. Would like to get something with a longer range. Thanks in advance.

The Winegard Sensar IV has been tested to be about the best one going as far as sensitivity. I have one, and can get stations that are 40-60 miles away.

King makes good antennas as well. They have a model that is a direct replacement for the Winegard, here: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01N59MJQ2/

[edit] oops, this is a direct replacement for a Wingman or Sensar, not a Rayzar.

I'm at a permanent spot and I do not pull my fifth wheel anywhere.
This is in an area that is about 48 miles from Cincinnati and 55 miles from Louisville. There are no "stock" RV antenna's that can pick up ANY TV stations at all.

I bought one of these and have it on a 20' pole that is attached to the rear bumper of the camper and I now get 27 TV stations just fine.
Once others at camp saw this, I have installed 9 more of these this year.

Granted, it is different if you are pulling a camper, but it couldn't be too tough to set something up quickly to get this to work.
Heck of a lot cheaper than the Sensar IV too!
