I bought Winegard Pathway X2 auto dome. It’s advantage is it lets you choose either DISHs eastern OR western arc. This is an advantage if there are trees or hills as the sats are located in different areas of the sky so higher chances of getting a signal.

DISH is way more RV friendly. You can change locals daily if you want. You can reauthorize your sat box from your phone.

This isn't a direct answer but...We've been Dish customers for several years; no complaints at all. We purchased the Pathway X2 for the RV and it has served us quite well for over 5 years. Our only issue with it while wintering in the Texas Hill Country is on those infrequent occasions when we get a bit of freezing rain. It tends to accumulate and freeze in the track and prevents the dome from rotating. Other than that it's been trouble-free. We recently acquired the RV in my signature and it came with a Travler installed. Our experience has been limited to utilizing it in our driveway, but it's working quite well. For us it was more economical and convenient to add the RV to our regular account. Hope this helps

X2^^ The Pathway X2 is not only eastern AND western arc capable, it has a larger reflector and stronger signal. With a Dish outdoor account, it's extremely easy to change locations with the phone app to get locals, too.

Thank you all. Was going to get the tailgater. But saw the Pathway has slightly bigger fish! I think that's what I will go with!

You know you can edit your previous post rather than post an addition.


What I post is my 2 cents and nothing more. Please don't read anything into my post that's not there. If you disagree, that's OK.
Can't we all just get along?
