The Top Cell Phone Boosters for RVs and Trucks

Rich Edwards | May 15, 2019

As the weather gets better and summer draws ever closer, the call of the wild gets stronger.

Especially when you happen to own an RV, a camper, a truck, or off-road recreational vehicle. There’s nothing quite like the great outdoors to help you escape the 9-to-5 routine of the typical work week. Once school is out for the year, weekend camping escapes and wilderness adventures quickly become the norm. Whether you stay at roadside campgrounds with all the perks or camp in the middle of nowhere, every weekend you strive for the new or unexpected.

Except for the reliability and strength of your cell signal coverage.

Sure, being outside is a great reason to be unplugged and not tied to our smartphones. But at the same time, no one wants to be stranded on the side of a mountain road with mechanical problems—unable to arrange a tow to the mechanic.  Worse yet, nothing is quite as frightening as finding yourself far from home in a medical emergency without the ability to call for help.

Other times, you just need to check if you’re following the correct route or know where you’re at.

Whatever the situation, a cell signal booster is a wise investment. The first step is deciding which booster is best for the way you RV and how you use your cellular-connected devices. You might need to choose the booster accessories rugged enough to endure your next off-road adventure.

Let’s get started.

Best Cell Phone Booster for RVs or Trucks: On or Off Road

For quick weekend escapes, having cell connectivity from point A to point B is always important.

Whether its checking your GPS coordinates, following a charted route, keeping up on the current weather or traffic conditions, or simply calling or texting home to let everyone know you’re okay, you want to have strong, reliable cell signal during the time you’re behind the wheel on the open road.

If this describes your most frequent need, you would need the weBoost Drive 4G-X RV cell phone booster.

The Drive 4G-X RV boosts signal for multiple users and cellular devices at the same time—all throughout the cabin of an RV or truck with a towable trailer. It works with all major US mobile carriers for boosting all available network speeds and can be used anywhere you journey throughout North America.

If you’re the type who like to take their truck off the beaten path or trekking across sand dunes in the remote wilderness, the Drive 4G-X OTR would be the best cell phone booster for trucks. It comes with a durable, all-weather, high-performance 50 Ohm omni-directional trucker antenna that’s CB-mount compatible and looks great on a 4×4.

When parked at a campsite, the Drive 4G-X RV and OTR also boost existing cell signal so you can enjoy increased hotspot capability and vastly improve your ability to support streaming services like Hulu and Netflix on tablets, smartphones, and other cellular-connected devices.

Best Cell Phone Booster for RVs or Campers: When Parked

Maybe you’re the type of person who reaches their destination and likes to stay and camp for a while.

As most RVers and outdoor enthusiasts know, the places with the best views don’t always have the best cell phone reception. Just because you and your family decide to stay for a week or two at your vacation property or you’ve retired and decide to live at the campground all summer doesn’t mean you can’t get better reception in your camper or increase the signal in your RV. Get the weBoost Connect RV 65 cell phone booster for RVs.

With a maximum gain of 65 dB, it’s a more powerful RV signal booster than the Drive 4G-X RV. Plus if you’re going to extend your stay, you’ll definitely take advantage of the 25-foot tall telescoping antenna that comes equipped with the Connect RV 65. Because of its size and how it’s set up, the Connect RV 65 can only be used while your RV is parked. However, you won’t be in a rush to go anywhere.

Fully extended, the antenna pole allows for the outside directional antenna to maximize its reach to the nearest cell towers in the area—providing you with a stronger, more reliable cell signal in even the most remote settings. With this RV cell phone booster, you can feel confident about your ability to make calls, send texts, check social media and maybe check your work email, if you work and travel on the road.

Although the Connect RV 65 is unable to function as an RV cell phone booster while in motion, it might be worth the tradeoff. The 25-ft. telescoping antenna was designed for quick setup. It should only take about 10 minutes to get it repositioned—letting you get your Connect RV 65 up and running in no time.

Enjoy Greater Peace of Mind in the Great Outdoors with a Cell Phone Signal Booster

Camping, RVing, and off-roading are all welcome escapes for our always connected world. However, the benefits of having strong, reliable cell signal coverage wherever you go are too great to ignore.
