Full Answer

The Winegard Carryout G2 is a fully automatic satellite receiver, suitable to mount to the roof of an RV or to set up on a tailgate or a picnic table. The receiver works with all major satellite providers and searches for satellites automatically once plugged in. It ranks among the smallest receivers of its kind. The Recreational Vehicle Aftermarket Association named the Winegard Carryout G2 "Product of the Year" in 2014.

The King Dome is another receiver with a very small form factor, designed for roof mounting on an RV. It also functions with all major satellite providers but remains incompatible with some DirecTV signals. The receiver allows users to watch high-definition programming from Dish and listen to satellite radio programming.

Dish Network offers the Dish Tailgater receiver, which automatically seeks Dish satellites on setup and works with all Dish programming. Users can set up the Tailgater on the ground or mount it on the roof of an RV. It has a larger form factor than the Carryout or the Dome and comes with a carrying handle for easy portability.
