weBoost's 4G OTR Truck / X RV cellular antenna is a classic omnidirectional shaft-mounted design that does not require a ground plane. It comes in two different form factors for semi-truck and RV installation.
This antenna is available separately or kitted with the weBoost Drive 4G-X OTR or weBoost Sleek OTR or weBoost Drive X RV cellular boosters. It is also often included in other bundles from some of the distributors that sell it.
In October 2020, weBoost has released an updated version of these antennas called the Drive RV and Drive OTR Antennas, with a sleeker design and improved specifications. They are designed specifically for use and are kitted with the Drive Reach and Drive Sleek boosters with SMB connectors.

In summer 2018, weBoost discontinued selling two versions of the trucker OTR antenna and replaced it with a singular kit that provides multiple installation options. The newer version is 17" tall (the former options were 19" and 24") and includes two extension poles and both the rigid & spring mount. The antenna itself remains identical.
- In July 2019, weBoost released the Drive X RV kit which includes the same antenna with a more RV friendly shorter stalk at just 9.5". The kit includes a spring mount and extension pole, with options for 9.5" and 28.5" in total height.
- In April 2020, the antenna became available ala carte as well as kitted with the booster.
- In October 2020, weBoost released an updated version of these antennas with SMB connectors, a more sleek design, and improved specifications.

Review & Testing Status
We have tested both the original 24" rigid version as well as the 2018 revised OTR kit version. We tested it extensively in pairing with weBoost and HiBoost boosters, as an independent antenna and using two in a 'mock-MIMO' configuration. It's a solid top performer.
Here are some recent rounds of field testing (testing data available to our members):
