Drive RV cell signal antenna is a versatile and powerful omnidirectional antenna engineered for RVs and weBoost in-vehicle boosters. Sought after for its improved design aesthetics and a variety of installation options, it is capable of extending its height from 7.5 inches to 20.5 inches for better range.
It is designed for use with a vehicle cell phone signal booster or specifically a RV cell phone signal booster because the cable that comes attached to it connects to the cellular amplifier unit. If you don't have a cell phone booster and only have mobile modem you want to connect it to for better cell reception, please make sure modem has SMA-Male connector so it fits the cable that comes with this antenna (cable has SMA-female connector but SMA-male and SMB-plug adapters also included), or you will need to buy a connector that makes its cable's SMA-female connector to fit your cellular modem or router.
With its 13 inches mast extension, 25-ft. RG-6 extension cable, L-bracket ladder mount, spring base, side-exit adapter, threadlocker, and mounting hardware, it can accommodate RVs and motorized homes of all sizes. It is a versatile, high-gain, omnidirectional antenna that is compatible with both weBoost Drive X and weBoost Drive Reach in-vehicle boosters.
This proprietary antenna stands out, not only due to improved aesthetics but also because it meets the toughest off-roading and outdoor standards. It also comes with an improved low-loss antenna cable to optimize performance on the road.
The Drive Reach RV antenna's all-weather, all-terrain construction meets current U.S. Military 810H and NEMA IP66 standards. This is Wilson Electronics' most durable antenna yet. It is resistant to high wind gusts, low tree branches, rain, dust, dirt, and more. Additionally, improved low-loss antenna cable optimizes performance on the road and at campsites for all carrier networks and devices.

Difference between the previous model weBoost 304415 and the new SKU 311230.
Why does the new RV antenna cost more than the old one, and what are the main differences between the discontinued part number 304415 and the new 311230? For starters, improvements in the new one are extensive regarding durability and weatherization features of the new RV antenna 311230 (and SKU 311229 for OTR trucks). The new antennas (both models 311230 and 311229) meet MIL-Spec for durability and are IPX7 rated. The new ones also have new improved design with all black masts, and improved cable that has lower loss than the older model version 304415 did. The new ones also have new mast lengths and main mast attached to the boost - Basically, these new antenna versions can be configured in more ways than the old version to get the right height for optimal performance.
Questions & Answers
QUESTIONS & ANSWERSAsk a Question
I have a Weboost Drive-4G-X booster on my RV, and need to replace the exterior antenna. The specs for my unit indicate it's a 75 ohm booster, but according to the data sheet on the Drive RV antenna that you sell, it's only 50 ohms. Will this work? And if so, is the 50 ohm marine antenna that you also sell going to work any better? Or perhaps it is just more durable? Basically, I want the best antenna available for my system, so any suggestions you can offer would be most appreciated. Thank you.
The best option is this reference Drive RV antenna, part 311230. The marine antenna has the same gain, as the RV antenna does. Secondly, it does not really bare any advantages for a RV. The 50 Ohm impedance is ok, for the booster also. Thank you.
I am interested in purchasing the Wilson Weboost Drive Antenna. I'm not sure it will meet my needs. I have a travel trailer on a seasonal site at a campground. The wifi signal is about 600 yards away and does not reach my trailer. If I install this antenna on the ladder of the trailer will it pick up the wifi signal? Also do I need to connect the cable to a router in the trailer so my phone can pick up wifi and receive text and email. If I need a router do you sell one or suggest one.
Sorry, the referenced Wilson weBoost Drive antenna you're referring to, is for cellular connectivity (698-2700 MHz cellular bands), not wifi frequencies 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz.
If you need better cell phone connectivity in RV, we suggest you consider buying the weBoost Drive Reach RV kit that we carry for that purpose which includes this antenna.
For wifi connectivity, we recommend RV wifi booster kit.
I just need antenna - no extra cable. I have new install and as careful not to over tighten base of antenna. I did use thread locker. After the extreme weather my antenna has cracks on the base. What would an 311230 antenna cost me, and do you sell just antenna at lower cost?
Sorry, this antenna comes packaged with cable so we cannot sell antenna separately. We cannot discount this item either because shipping cost is very high on this item since it is big and heavy (flat shipping cost we offer at this website does not compensate for actual shipping cost).

Note: For any signal booster to help, outside signal strength must be at least -110 dB or there must be a clear line of sight to a cell tower that is within twenty miles. Before ordering, please check outside signal level in decibels or ensure that you can make and hold a phone call at any good spot outside where you can mount an exterior antenna. Square footage stated in signal booster listings is based on good signal outside. If it is any weaker, the boosted sq. ft. area will be considerably lower, accordingly.
Kevin K. of Anderson, California gave the following review:
Website is easy to use with plain straight forward info but could have had more on testing signal strength to make sure you get a strong enough booster.
Therefore, please note that stated sq. ft. coverage is based on good signal outside. For best results: If outside signal is weak, we suggest choosing the next higher sq. ft. coverage kit. If outside signal is very weak, we suggest choosing the kit with even more higher sq. ft. range bracket. Basically, higher the sq. ft. bracket, the more powerful the signal amplifier with greater Gain as well as higher uplink and downlink output power.
If outside signal is too weak (weaker than -110 dB), submit request for cell coverage solution assessment. Upon receipt of questionnaire, we will perform residential or business site survey. This will help us determine the system that is needed to improve cell coverage. Then, we will create system design using that system such as femtocell, active or hybrid distributed antenna system (DAS), or other carrier feed signal enhancing method available that will work at your signal-challenged location. Finally, we will schedule for installation after equipment and installation service quote has been approved by you, or your company.
For non installation-included kits: Most home / office / building cell signal booster kits only include bracket to mount exterior antenna on outside wall, edge of roof, or existing pipe up to 2 inches in diameter. Mounting pole not included with most kits, unless stated specifically that it is included for free. Therefore, a mounting post must be purchased separately if you will require it to mount exterior antenna.
