Roof mount for Dish Tailgater Pro

So I am thinking about installing a roof mount (MB700) for my Dish Tailgater Pro. The tailgater may not be as good as a regular full size dish, but I'm hope putting it up on the roof will simplify things for me. Not having to pull the Dish out, put it on the tripod , running the cable, etc. But will it function okay up there? That is my question for those that have put their Dish Tailgater up on the roof of their RW. I'd hate to have to keep taking it down because it is not working properly. Also, I haven't purchased the mount yet, but it states it is made of hard plastic. Think it would be okay leaving it up there while traveling?

Thanks!

I had a Winegard RoadTrip MiniMax mounted on the roof of our 2012 Redwood 36RL by the dealer set up for Dish Network. Traveled from Indiana to Florida, to Colorado, Michigan and to Washington state and points in between. I only had a problem once over 10 years getting a signal and that was due to having a campsite among very tall and thick trees. You just need to ask for a campsite with a view of the southwest sky if you are using Dish.

Hope this helps

I have two Tailgaters, one for each tv and both in roof mounts. Works well, as long as you have the coach oriented with the nose somewhat southerly. Those antennas work best when the handle is pointed north.

I’ve had them up on the roof for about 5 years.
