- 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 anteana with a more RV friendly shorter stalk. The kit includes a spring mount and extension pole, with options for 9.5" and 28.5" in total height. This version of the antenna is only available in the Drive X RV kit.
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):
- Cellular Signal MIMO Antenna Field Testing (Spring 2019)
- Cellular Signal Field Testing – SureCall Fusion2Go 3.0 | weBoost 4G-X OTR | weBoost 4G-M | HiBoost OTR | MIMO Antennas (Late 2018)
- Cellular Signal Field Testing – SureCall Fusion2Go 3.0 | weBoost Connect RV 65 | HiBoost OTR | MIMO Antennas (2nd Quarter 2018)
- Cellular Signal & Embedded Router Field Testing – IBR900 | MAX-BR1 | ConnecT 2.0 | SkyPro LTE | Drive Sleek | MIMO Antennas (1st Quarter 2018)
- Cellular Signal Enhancing Field Testing Results (Mid 2017) - Featuring the new Drive 4G-X RV Kit
In our testing, this antenna showed increased gains over other options - particularly over the 4" magnetic mount antenna and the weBoost 4G-X RV kit.
However, this antenna does present some installation challenges on RVs due to it's height. It was really meant for installing on a semi-trucks rear view mirror - not the roof of an RV.
If you have a rear ladder or retractable batwing antenna on your rig, those do present options that can keep the antenna at a lower profile while in motion. As does using this antenna in a temporary installation on a flagpole/mast or using a suction cup mount.
