Chances are your Wi-Fi booster is hanging out on the roof or side of your travel trailer. The last thing you want is for it to rust over—or worse, stop working.
Look for water-resistant and high-grade materials for weatherproofing. And if you decide to get handy with waterproof tape during setup, make sure using it doesn’t void your warranty first.
Wi-Fi boosters and extenders for your RV can vary a lot in price. But sometimes a higher price comes with a few extras. Fork over more money and you’ll get a full router and extender kit with the Alfa Camp Pro 2. Or tag a couple extra hundred onto the price tag to get extremely rugged materials with the Halo Wi-Fi Extender System.
One thing to note: a Wi-Fi booster or extender intended for your RV is likely more expensive than one you plug into a wall outlet at home. That’s because boosters and extenders made for campers tend to be more substantial and durable.
Stick with Wi-Fi boosters and extenders made for RVs.
We don’t recommend boosters or extenders that plug into your wall for your RV. Often these need to pair with your campsite modem and stay in close range of it. But as soon as you park in that spot at the far edge of the campground, you’re out of luck—and a Wi-Fi signal.
Don’t rough it in your RV—get a Wi-Fi booster or extender.
Next time you load up your camper and hit the road, bring a Wi-Fi booster or extender with you.
Sure, the idea is to get away from it all, but that’s no reason to not update your daughter that you made it to the KOA in Hot Springs, Arkansas. And without a strong Wi-Fi signal, you might miss the new baby photos she sent. That’s a tragedy no one deserves.
