Sample Mobile Internet Setup Explorer
Here you can explore some common mobile internet configurations, including some of the mobile internet setups of other RVers and cruisers.
Use the hover points to learn more about each component of a setup. And then browse the current featured options for each.
Remember - the sky (sometimes literally) is the limit in possibilities - so don't restrict yourself to just these samples.
Personal Setup Examples
Over the years we have met many RVers and cruisers who have created differing mobile internet arsenals to satisfy their specific needs.
While we don’t recommend just copying another person’s setup, looking at the setups of others can be super helpful in understanding how this stuff comes together.
What follows are links to RVers and cruisers who have shared their own mobile internet setups. As the mobile internet world is constantly changing, some of these setups may contain technology or plans that are no longer available. However, we hope you glean a sense of the creativity and variety of solutions fellow nomads have applied to finding mobile internet solution that works for them!
We also recommend reading through our guide to Approaching Your Mobile Internet Solution before diving too deeply into each of the sample set-ups listed below. It's important to understand the ways examining another nomad's setup can be useful - and also the things you need to keep in mind as you do. We have created a guide to help you better understand why there is no one-size-fits-most solution to mobile internet, but that will help you better approach your setup so that you can successfully create an arsenal to support your personal needs and style.:
