I would buy the carry case that they have and not mount it on the roof. You will always need to move it.
I agree 100% with Turk123. Receiving the digital signal is critical to having an unobstucted view to the South. (SSW actually). By having a 50' cable you can move the dish to a location that insures the best reception. Using the tripod makes for a secure mount but many times a picnic table works just as well. The King carry bag is perfect for storage. I bypassed the Airstream coax connections and installed my own outdoor connector inside a storage locker which then leads directly to the Wally receiver. Airstream has too many connectors, splitters and the antenna booster inline that robs you of signal strength. Check out my Dish review on Amazon by RenoGMC, I went through quite a learning curve but Dish has it dialed in pretty well now.
