Alfa packages the Alfa Desktop R36A WiFi Antenna with their External RV Booster Tube together as the WiFi Camp Pro 2 kit. Another option is the indoor only WiFi CampPro 2 Mini where an outdoor solution is not desired.
The WiFi receiving component is a USB powered WiFi radio that can connect directly to a single computer to get it online, or it can act as a WiFi-as-WAN receiver when paired with the USB Repeater module which then acts as a router, creating a local WiFi network so that multiple devices can get online and share the upstream connection.
The Alfa hardware has a solid reputation for picking up weak 2.4 Ghz WiFi at long range.
The feature set is very basic and focused on Wi-Fi extending only, but for some the price is right.
A "Version 2" of this model came out in June 2020. It is identical to the original version, but with an updated chipset that gives it higher throughput speeds.

Routers can serve as a central conductor of your local area network in your RV and boat.
