I just did a review on the Wi-Fi Camp Pro 2 system. It works great!
Great price also...

This is what I have in my airstream, this does include the external option you indicated you’ll add later.

This will fulfill all your requirements. I use it all the time for a local LAN inside the trailer for Apple TV, file sharing, etc.

The router DC adaptor is 12v, so you can also cut the AC adaptor off and hardwire the plug to your 12V for a nice clean install.

Very happy, great control and flexibility for what you spend. The pre-packaged RV “solutions” are a waste of money.

WiFi/Wi-Fi extender, local area network in trailer

I’ve had WiFi ranger but now use the latest generation pepwave surf SOHO with MIMO antennas. Works awesome - gigabit LAN, more stable, excellent reception and has better admin interface that the ranger IMO.

Used double sided tape and stuck it to the panoramic front window behind the curtains... and runs off 12v by snaking a power lead to the overhead cabinet / 12v outlet.

Are there any routers that will tether over USB to a iPhone? My WiFi ranger will tether to my Hotspot fine but has never been happy about using USB to connect to an iPhone. Sometimes we get the best signal with our Verizon hotspot and sometimes with our AT&T phones. While we can connect like we do now over WiFi to the phone I’d rather not have that extra congestion.

I agree that the MIMO antenna is best but it is directional and will only work if you point it at the cell tower, is there a different MIMO that is less directional , I also have trouble with the reliability of the Ranger , a lot of set up time

Not really what you asked for but the new Roadlink from Togo is an interesting device. It gives you unlimited (subject only to network congestion) AT&T service and WiFi rebroadcast. The AT&T service is only $30 a month paid annually. It has a dome you mount on the roof and you just feed it with 12v. Everything else is inside the dome. The dome is from Winegard, what’s special is the data plan deal.

This is a subsidiary of Thor industries who owns Airstream. This program was a result of the work Airstream did for the new Airstream Connect option. This is a whole lot cheaper at $399 and a self install over the Airstream branded option.

It’s not some super fancy modem or router in the dome but I suspect it will get the job done.
