Satellite TV To Improve Your Caravan

Wednesday, 26 February 2014  |  Ashley

Ever get tired of sitting in your caravan on a rainy day and thought that there must be more to do than board games and charades? Well, as it turns out, there is. With a caravan satellite system, you can have all the benefits of satellite TV without the prerequisite of being at home. There are a number of caravan satellite systems you can use.

What Caravan Satellite System Is Right For Me?

There are a few considerations that you’ll need to account for when you chose a caravan satellite system, and a few different systems to choose from. Here’s an overview of the most popular:

  • Manual roof mounted system – probably the most common caravan satellite system that you will see, this is essentially a regular satellite dish that is mounted on a caravan. A lot of the time these dishes will be retractable into the body of the caravan in order to protect them from the elements. Their bulky size is what gives them their greatest disadvantage though – they are quite susceptible to wind damage, and the strain they can put on the roof of the caravan can cause it to collapse. Bear this in mind if you’re considering purchasing a manual roof mounted system.
  • Domed roof mounted system – the domed roof mounted system is a popular caravan satellite system but generally costs a bit more than a roof mounted dish. The low profile of the dome means that it isn’t as exposed to the elements, but also means that it won’t be retractable. This low profile also means that wind doesn’t affect as much in the way that it blows regular dishes out of position, so can be used in all conditions. What’s more, this caravan satellite system will often have automatic tracking, so you won’t have to go through the hassle of finding the satellite yourself.
