WiFiRanger's product lines focus on a mix of outdoor (rooftop) units and indoor mobile routers.
Their components are designed to be modular - meaning they can be used as standalone devices or connected together to create a more capable system by pairing an outdoor unit with a router, letting them work together.
WiFiRanger sells packs that combine popular pairings of products together - however, you can easily mix-n-match separately purchased components within the current generation of products.
Once paired, both units are controlled through a single user interface - with the interior router remotely controlling the long-range roof hardware.
WiFiRanger originally focused on long-range Wi-Fi and routers - and this is still their strong suit - but they're moving into cellular as well as integrated systems that provide TV & Radio antennas and "smart" RV automated systems.
WiFiRanger specifically designs their equipment and features with the RVer in mind. They typically beta test their products with a group of RVers in the field before release, and a lot of the beta feedback ends up incorporated into future releases.
Their products strike a balance between ease of use for the non-techie, while still packing some more advanced features and performance.
The downside of WiFiRanger is that they are a small company, which means they don't have huge engineering or QA departments. The result is that bugs in their firmware are annoyingly common and new product launches can experience delays.
But overall WiFiRanger has a reputation for delivering solid customer support, and they are very responsive to fixing issues... eventually.
WiFiRanger introduced a new product line in 2019 called Converge. They have three indoor routers (Poplar, Spruce, and Aspen) and three outdoor routers (Teton, Denali, and Everest), all of which can be used independently, or bundled together.
All of WiFiRanger's products contain a full router and Wi-Fi extending features.

In late October 2019, we received a WiFiRanger Converge Denali with Cat-6 modem and Spruce interior router for evaluation from WiFiRanger direct and then an Aspen in October 2020. We placed them into our testing setup. We are also expecting to receive an Everest router for testing when it is released.

Routers can serve as a central conductor of your local area network in your RV and boat. Mobile routers are different from residential routers in that they typically support internet sources like cellular and Wi-Fi, can be powered off of 12v or AC and support external antenna for better receiving signal.
But you might not need a router in your setup. Here's a quick video overview the variety that routers come in:
