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.
News, Videos & 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.

Cellular antennas can be a vital part of your signal enhancing strategy to get a better signal, and thus better cellular data performance. They come in many shapes, sizes and varieties.
They can be used directly connected to your mobile hotspots or cellular embedded routers, or they might connect to your cellular booster. They come in omni-directional vs directional, single vs MIMO, and might support different frequency bands. They come in combination antennas with Wi-Fi and GPS.
But most importantly, is your installation options on your RV or boat.
So before choosing an antenna, be sure to understand all of these variables - and keep in mind that there likely isn't a single 'one size fits all' solution here. You may need to make compromises, or even have speciality antennas for challenging signal areas.
