As an update, Wilson also has 5 volt adapter depending on your unit. Check their web site.

Yes my Wilson (weboost) come with both an AC and DC connectors / plugs. I power mine with 12v DC through a little 5v or 6v converter that came with the unit.

I've been VERY happy with the two high end WiFiRanger solutions I've purchased. I believe WiFiRanger will be introducing a totally new WiFi solution in the near future.

WeBoost RV 65 Review

I purchased the WeBoost RV 65 a few weeks ago and did a "temporary" install while camped at St. George Island SP in Florida's panhandle last week. The campground is pretty remote. We use Sprint as our service provider. Installation was very easy; just follow the instructions. It's nothing more than connecting a few components together with coax, and attaching a power supply to the booster.

Overall, it worked as advertised. We went from "1x Extended" to a 4G LTE Extended connection (with four bars) after hooking up.

The WeBoost 65 RV uses a telescoping pole upon which the directional hi-gain antenna is secured. Once it's attached and wired up, the pole extends to 25' in height.

I fashioned an antenna pole mounting system by placing the antenna pole inside the passenger side rear bumper of my 2019 27' FC FB. I used Velcro straps to secure the base of the pole to the bumper, and another section of the pole higher up to the rear window awning arm. There are three small holes in the round plastic base of the pole suitable for metal tent/canopy stakes. I put stakes through all three. I also used a couple more canopy stakes with poly lines to put additional tension on the pole from different directions. The end result was that the pole was very stable in the fully extended position.

I am curious if any others use the RV 65 kit with their Airstreams and how they've gone about mounting the antenna pole.

Regards from sunny, warm, and humid S. Florida!

Adam, my 1972 Sovereign still has its groovy old "batwing" TV antenna up top. I would really like to hear more about how you repurposed it to boost your cell signal. It only makes sense to me that to have the best hotspot cell phone based internet I somehow need to get the cell signal from outside hard wired into the inside of my tin can. From there re-casting the signal upon the airwaves within the interior walls of my chrome twinkie should be far more superior. Making the groovy batwing is a HUGE bonuse!

This may be a dumb question.. but can you use the antenna that Airstream mounts from the factory on an Interstate (Poynting) and plug it into the WeBoost? I have 2020 Interstate with the Poynting antenna on top and am trying to figure out what to do with it.

Which type is it? See here for the bands supported by the various Poynting models: https://poynting.tech/choice-of-antenna/

It's the MIMO-3 that does Cellular and Wifi. I have a general understanding of how routers work though this application seems different since the thing I'm connecting to the router - an iPhone or cellular iPad - already has an internet connect to it.. I'm trying to understand why the router itself needs to have an additional cellular connection that it applies downstream to my devices that already have one.

What brand/model of router is it? Did the router come with the Interstate or is it aftermarket?
