No Cell signal? Maybe this will work

I stumbled across this on the Gizmodo website. It is a company which makes a "spray on" antenna. Imagine the reception we could get if we painted the entire roof of our Airstream!

They really knocked themselves out providing information, didn't they?

No information whatsoever, just call for pricing. One of the most pathetic websites I've seen. At lest the graphics are nice.

I think that the shell of an Airstream does very well getting a signal, it's getting the signal inside that is the problem.

These items might be a better investment:

Good point, Richard. The Gizmodo write up was actually better than the company website, and their comment was on the lack of information and big claims.

Mounting one of these on the roof would work well.

Great for keeping an eye on the neighborhood at the same time, too.
