Wilson Electronics has released its new weBoost Destination RV, a cellular signal booster that is designed to be used in parked RVs, toy haulers, and trailers.
The booster is compatible with all mobile devices and wireless carriers in North America, helping to provide improved call quality and result in fewer dead zones, uninterrupted texts, and faster data streaming.
“As the pandemic continues, more and more people are turning to RVs as a safe, responsible way to travel and get beyond their homes’ four walls,” says Wilson Electronics’ CEO Bruce Lancaster. “The Destination RV is the obvious choice for anyone that’s looking to ensure strong cell signal on any cellular-connected device, no matter where ‘home’ is that month.”
According to the Kampgrounds of America’s annual North American Camping Report, cited by Wilson Electronics, 82% of first-time campers in 2020 have young children in the home, suggesting that the belief that RVs were historically purchased by retirees is changing. They are also increasingly being used by people who are remote working. The Wi-Fi offered by most campgrounds, however, tends to be weak or spotty and unreliable.
The Destination RV combines the mobility of an RV cell signal booster kit with the power of a residential cell signal booster, says Wilson. It uses the weBoost Home MultiRoom’s powerful amplifier and external antenna to provide a max gain of 65 dB so it can reach far away cell towers. The weBoost Destination RV is also optimized for the continued rollout of 5G and prepared to boost cell signal for all major carriers for the next decade and beyond, says Wilson.
The Destination RV includes everything needed for do-it-yourself installation, including the cell signal booster itself, inside antenna, outside directional antenna, 25-foot telescoping pole, outside antenna mounting hardware, and power supply and cables.
The exterior antenna reaches out to cell phone towers to receive a signal and amplifies it using a series of low noise amplifiers and filters. This amplified signal is broadcast through the inside antenna and back to the tower, providing stronger, more reliable calls, texting and data in the RV, Wilson notes.
Installation takes about 30 minutes for most consumers, and each subsequent takedown and setup when changing the RV’s stationary location takes about 10 minutes.
Certified by the FCC and Industry Canada and pre-approved by all carriers, the weBoost Destination RV is now available in Canada for $900.
