I always thought my Carry Out dish antenna took up too much valuable storage area. And at many campgrounds/RV Parks I would put it on top of the MH after we set up anyway. So I decided to mount it on top where it would ride, but still be able to take it down to the ground if trees were an issue. So I made up a mount for it.
I bought a Tripod from CW and did not use the legs. I made short brackets to be able to mount the tripod base to the roof, therefore I can easily take the clips out and remove the dish in a jiffy.
First I made some short brackets using items from the local hardware store.
Here is the Tripod Base attached to the short brackets.
This is a close up of the base clipped to the brackets.
And the setup almost complete.
Of course you need to dicor seal all of the screw and bracket attachments at the roof also, but I didn't show that.
And I need to run my cables to the Sat Receiver still. My AV cabinet is just to the right of the dish, so I will be drilling thorugh the roof over near the edge to run the cables down.
