The Best RV Upgrade You’re Not Doing

RV owners, do you want to know what it is? Of course you do. Many of you are looking for any way you can maximize your experiences in your recreational vehicle. We’re not talking about solar power, wireless RV backup cameras, or even counter extensions. Those are good, but the best RV upgrade is a cell phone signal booster. (At least in our opinion.) These devices will improve your RV experience on many levels but some RV owners are afraid to get one. Before we get into that, let’s take a look at why…

 …Cell Boosters are the No. 1 RV Upgrade

Yes, I said it. In fact, it’s the second time I said it, and I’m prepared to defend that statement. Look, it’s safe to say that practically everyone uses cell phones these days. What else are you going to use in your RV, when you’re miles away from home? Exactly. Well, if you’re relying on your cell phone, you need reliable cell service. A cell phone booster practically guarantees that. Let me show you how that works.

To understand how a cell booster works, you have to know its parts. These devices consist of an outdoor antenna, booster, and an indoor antenna.  Here’s how these three components work together:

  • The outdoor antenna delivers voice and 3G, 4G, and LTE data signal to the booster.
  • The booster receives the signal, amplifies it, and sends it to the indoor antenna.
  • The indoor antenna broadcasts the signal throughout your RV.
  • This process works in reverse every time you make a call or send data.

Here’s what all this means to you: You’ll experience far fewer dropped calls and missed texts if you have a booster. You’ll also experience quicker downloads. All of this is great news for anyone whose entire life is wrapped up in their cell phones, which is like all of us!

Why You Haven’t Gotten a Cell Booster…

Members of our Signal Connect division talk to RV owners almost every day. In fact, many of them just got done exhibiting at The Detroit RV & Camping Show in Novi, Michigan. They talked to plenty of RV owners at that event! Needless to say, the subject of cell phone booster upgrades came up. So did RV owners’ top four reasons for why the think they don’t need one of these devices right now.

“Do Cell Phone Boosters Work?”

Yes, they work, but there’s something you need to know. These devices can only do their jobs if you have a smidgen of connectivity. If you’re in an area with absolutely zero cell phone service – let’s say Death Valley – then a cell booster won’t do you any good. But, if you’re at a campground in the mountains and only have half a bar, you’re good. Your cell booster will grab that signal, amplify it, and distribute it throughout your camper or motorhome. This improves ingoing and outgoing calls and texts simultaneously!

Cell Phone Booster Installation

Some of you might be thinking, “I can’t install that on my RV!” We’d like to stop you before your brain goes there, if we could. These devices are not that hard to install because they only consist of three components. Remember? It’s literally a matter of attaching one antenna outside your rig then running a cord through to the indoor antenna. In most cases, a solid signal rep can talk you through the process. If you need help, there’s probably someone at the local RV dealer who can help.

Cell Phone Booster Price

Price objections are a reality for most big purchases. While I’d love to tell you that cell phone boosters are free, they’re not. These devices have a cost but the good news is that it’s a one-time cost. There are NO monthly fees when it comes to these things. You just buy it once and enjoy unlimited boosting at no extra charge ever. So, yes, there is a cost, but it’s a one-time cost. These devices are built to last and you’ll get many years of use from your cell booster.

“Why Get a Cell Booster Now?”

It’s February and still freezing cold in at least half of the country. If you live in a state that gets snow, you’re probably not even taking your RV out yet. It almost makes sense except for one important point, which is that people forget things. You know what happens to things we don’t do right away? In most cases, they never get done. Besides, as you get close to season, you’ll find a bunch of other upgrades you’ll want to get. With your most important one out of the way, you can look at those solar panels you’ve been dreaming of.
