The classic 4" tall magnet mount mini antenna that comes bundled with most older weBoost mobile boosters vehicle kits, is actually an overall relatively solid performer.
We lovingly refer to it as 'the stubby'.
The small unobtrusive size makes it easy to mount on magnetic surfaces. For non-metal surfaces (such as an RV's roof) a ground plane does need to be provided.
In June 2020, weBoost began shipping their new Drive Magnetic Antenna with the Drive Reach and Sleek antenna kits.

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.
We recommend starting with our Guide to Selecting Antennas, and then moving on to our other guides addressing related topics:
