I am thinking about installing an auto satellite on the roof of my 18' BT (similar to oyster unit) I was wondering if anyone has had problems with these units over bad corrugations I would hate to spend the money only to have it stuff up, We do on most trips get into some interesting and rough tracks.
Any help would be appreciated

Thanks

Jar you have answered your own question.

"I would hate to spend the money only to have it stuff up,"

When hinges break and fridge doors fall off and battery chargers fall to bits etc I cannot see how any mechanically complicated device with heaps of hinge points would stand the pace

A tripod mounted antenna is more versatile as you can wander around with it to find a suitable spot. With a roof mounted or any fixed mounted unit you cannot do this.

If you want the plans for the best tripod/antenna bar none PM me and I will send it.

Hi Jar
we have an Oyster Sat and have not experienced any problems since purchase in 2006.
