    Rule one... No such thing as a digital aerial.... No matter what someone trying to take your hard earned may tell you there really is no such thing... They are just high gain design, but basically just an aerial...

    On a motorhome or indeed a caravan, just get any decent directional job by.

    Most available are amped up nowadays.. Whilst a lot of folk rave on about Status antennas ( which are indeed very very good ) there are several other options available... The big thing is to get a directional one and not one of those that look like a flying saucer !
    Almost anything that is either v shaped or elongated that will proly be fine..
    If it has a 12v connection then it will have an amp built in..if it does not, get a small inline signal amp to go with it... Job done :thumb:

    Been using a Moonraker http://www.maplin.co.uk/12-24v-outdoor-digital-aerial-476170
    Its been excellent and picking up all main stations plus a few and I've been holed up in the works yard with buildings all around me very low down in the Wensum Valley just outside Norwich, It has more or less made the satellite system redundant.
