I have a 2015 27'FB Serenity with Directv. I ordered it through Airstream of Spokane.

Nick, the owner, hired an outside installation specialist to install a Winegard HD Travler antenna to install the antenna on the roof. I love the system, although it is a little pricey. Total installation + dish was $2500.00.

The Travler antenna automatically unfolds itself and locates the satellites when powered on. My Directv receiver is mounted in the same overhead storage area as the Blu-ray player. The installer included a nice remote control HDMI switch so that you can switch between Blu-ray player, Satellite TV, Front or Rear TV.

We love the setup. Since we were already a DirecTV subscriber, we just wanted to use one of our spare receivers. Directv is the only satellite system that supports full 1080p HD TV and 3D TV. It is also the only company that has NFL Sunday ticket for watching all the NFL games.

Do you know if the satellite dish will find the satellites if you were to continue North into Canada? You can aim a manual dish low enough for it to work, but I wonder if the auto finders dishes restrict this search, since the provider doesn't in include Canada in the packages. Thanks, Ron

My experience is that you can get service if you are close to the border by selecting the closest state in the setup. When you get away from the border you can not get service.

Be sure to get the X2 rather than the X1. The X2 will find either the southern or the western arc satellites. If you have the X1 and don't have a clear view to the south, you are hosed. I have found that I can usually find one or the other with the X2.

Otherwise, I agree with what was said about the Dish service above. I don't see how they could have done any better for us.

Also, I've found that when we are traveling in Canada, I can just tell them I'm in Buffalo or some similar nearby city and get local channels that way. Farthest I've been successful with this is the Mont Temblant region north of Montreal.


Somebody, please, point me to the road.
