What is "bad form"?

A few weeks ago I was in a campsite that was covered with trees. Nobody near me with a roof mount antenna could get their satellite system working. I simply connected a 100' cable to the tailgator and moved it out of the tree line. Within 10 minutes I had my satellite system working.
Whoa... Not generalizing about the tailgater. Just talking about it being bad form to set up camp at walmart. At least the advice I've heard is that you shouldn't set out chairs, awnings, etc. when there, and it would seem like the tailgater would be one of those things as well. Unless you could do so discreetly like in the bed of a truck.

I likely will be setting up my trailer to use a tailgater in situations like what you describe.

The tailgator can be setup as a semi permanent antenna by using a removable ladder mount made by King Controls for the VuQube. The tailgator sits in the mount while driving, but can still be easily removed and repositioned when needed. The part number is MB400. Gives you the best of both worlds. Here's the mount I'm talking about:
