Depends on what style you want. If portable or small dome You still get HD with dish not direct. Also king tailgaters portable dish has an optional quick release roof mount, so you can store and use it on roof, or if your parked under trees set it out from under trees.
If you want multiple receivers or dvr winegard traveler full size dish, motorized.

I use the king on mine. Had a hard mount and found myself parked under trees too often. So have the portable now.

We have winegard direct dome on roof. There is situations where it will not get a signal though. Ours is in motion. Was on coach already. Not certain in motion is really necessary for just the two of us.

We use the king pro with dish HD receivers. made a portable mount to put on roof or tripod. Has input for two satellite receivers. The Dish receivers can be turned on on a month to month basis.

My rv had one on it when I bought and will never use it. Don't know what it is worth, auto finds satellites, that is all I know I w about it.

I use a dish playmaker on a tripod and Wally receiver. Takes 2 minutes to set up and I can avoid trees when we’re in the mountains

roof mount if you want to use while driving. Tripod mount if you camp under tree's.

I use a Winegard connect T 2.0 for wifi on the 5er. Kids use the wifi while in the truck and then the smart TV in the trailer. Worked well for out Texas trip and remote learning for the kids.

We even ran 2 different tv shows streaming and no issues.
