Anyone mount a Winegard carryout G3 sat dish on your rig a fiver. ? Is there enough clearance going down the road ? Winegard don't make the old crank up dish anymore. Thanks

My fiver is supposedly 13'5" and the only overpasses I've found lower were in the NE, particularly NY, but I'm sure there're lower in other states, too. You really need to take a measurement and add the height of the proposed satellite to see where you will be.

Measure the height of your 5er while hitched to the truck. See if the added height of the dome is too much and keeps you under 13'-6".

I think the Skyline 5ers were considered mid-profile and not all that tall to begin with.
