RV Solutions

3Gstore understands RVers!

3Gstore has been helping all kinds of customers with their mobile broadband needs for years. We've worked with everyone from big businesses to travelers to families in rural areas, and we understand that different users have different needs - including the RV community! Our participation on many RV forums and trips to RV conventions/shows has helped us learn all about what the RV community has to deal with on a daily basis. As a result we've helped thousands of RVers improve their existing cellular setups or make the right choices for a new mobile broadband solution.

Whether you're a part-timer or live on the road, want internet access just to check your email once a week or need to surf the web all day every day, know nothing about mobile broadband or just need to improve your existing equipment, 3Gstore can help!

We have the products you need at competitive pricing, but arguably the biggest advantage to shopping with the mobile broadband experts at 3Gstore is the unrivaled customer service and technical support we offer all our customers. The 3Gstore team is accustomed to helping RV customers each and every day and truly understands the importance of providing personalized assistance for each individual situation. If you have any trouble getting set up or simply need a little guidance, our patient and experienced technical support team will be ready to help!

So let's get started! Pick from one of the tabs above to see our suggested RV Solutions!


The simplest solution is a USB modem connected to a USB port on a single computer, along with our very popular indoor/portable Booster Antenna to help with 3G or 4G signal. You can use a USB modem from the provider of your choice (Sprint, Verizon, AT&T, etc - or even a pre-paid service) and wherever there is available cellular signal, this combination will provide internet access to the computer to which the modem is connected.

Advantages:

  • USB modem can work with desktop, laptop or even a cellular router.
  • Booster antenna helps improve cell signal for better performance.
  • Booster antenna is very compact - fits in laptop bag or briefcase - and doesn't require any installation (no holes to drill!).
  • Booster antenna comes with suction cups to mount to window.
  • Easily transportable from home to vehicle or between vehicles.
  • Least expensive solution.
Drawbacks:
  • Only provides internet connection to the one computer it is attached to.
  • Not the most powerful antenna available.
Also consider:
  • To share the internet connection with multiple computers/devices, add a router.
  • An external antenna like the 32" Omni RV Antenna can help with signal more.


This solution utilizes a USB modem or hotspot from the provider of your choice with the 21" Omni RV Antenna with Spring Base connected to it for better 3G or 4G signal, along with the Pepwave Surf On-The-Go router. The antenna mounts outside on the roof or RV ladder and allows for better signal when hills or trees are a problem, and the Surf On-The-Go router allows multiple computers and devices to access the internet all at the same time! Plus, the Surf On-The-Go's "WiFi-as-WAN" feature also allows you to utilize campground WiFi or other WiFi sources as an internet connection as a backup to your mobile broadband.

Advantages:

  • The Surf On-The-Go router works with a huge variety of USB modems and even the popular Millenicom no-contract Hotspot.
  • The 21" outdoor antenna boosts signal better than the Booster Antenna.
  • Router allows you to share the connection from ONE aircard/modem with MULTIPLE computers/devices/printers via WiFi (plus connect a computer/device that doesn't have WiFi via the ethernet port!)
  • The Surf On-The-Go's "WiFi-as-WAN" feature also allows you to utilize campground WiFi or other WiFi sources as an internet connection as a backup to mobile broadband.
  • Router provides high security via hardware firewall.
  • Router often provides faster performance & more stable connection.
  • Router's WiFi range easily extends past entire length of 40ft RVs.
  • Gaming consoles, tablets, and even DVRs can connect too (anything WiFi or ethernet-capable!).
  • Moderate price of this solution makes it the most popular.
Drawbacks:
  • Antenna installation may require a hole drilled for cable to enter RV.
  • Antenna is not easily moved from vehicle to vehicle or from vehicle to home.
  • Surf On-The-Go router only has one ethernet port.
Also consider:


This solution adds either a direct connect amplifier OR the Wilson Sleek cradle amplifier for even better signal, and utilizes the more powerful Cradlepoint MBR95 router.

Advantages:

  • Amplifier boosts cellular signal much more than antenna alone.
  • The Sleek cradle amplifier can also be used with phones (but it will only boost the signal to the one phone or hotspot in the cradle).
  • MBR95 has LED lights to indicate cellular modem signal.
  • The MBR95's "WiFi-as-WAN" feature also allows you to utilize campground WiFi or other WiFi sources as an internet connection as a backup to mobile broadband.
  • Router provides high security via hardware firewall.
  • Router often provides faster performance & more stable connection.
  • Router's WiFi range easily extends past entire length of 40ft RVs.
  • Gaming consoles, tablets, and even DVRs can connect too (anything WiFi or ethernet-capable!).
Drawbacks:
  • Amp makes this a more expensive solution.
  • Direct connect amps are either 3G-only or 4G-only (there isn't a 3G/4G direct connect amp).
  • If you opt for the Sleek cradle amplifier, your device must be IN the cradle to benefit from the signal boost.


If you want to boost the signal to your cell phones AND your modem at the same time, we recommend the SoHo Kit for RV, which amplifies voice and 3G cellular signal throughout living area of an RV. ALL of your cellular devices in the RV (cell phones and aircards) can benefit from the boosted signal without being physically connected to an antenna! The second part of our "best" solution pictured above is the Cradlepoint MBR1400 router, which provides stronger WiFi range and more enterprise features.

Advantages:

  • Signal amplification to multiple cellular modems and phones simultaneously.
  • No physical/wired connection to cellular devices is needed.
  • Panel antenna's beamwidth has great range and pushes boosted signal outside of the RV too (meaning you can take your cellphone outside the RV and still benefit from the boosted signal).
  • MBR1400 has LED lights that can indicate the cellular modem's signal.
  • MBR1400 has powerful WiFi "N" radio to improve WiFi range to/from router (meaning you can be further away from the router and still connect).
  • MBR1400 has 3 USB, 2 expresscard, 1 WAN and 4 LAN ports.
  • MBR1400 can load balance across 5 cellular, WAN (cable/dsl/satellite), and WiFi connections.
  • The MBR1400's "WiFi-as-WAN" functionality also allows you to utilize campground WiFi or other WiFi sources as an internet connection as a backup to mobile broadband.
Drawbacks:
  • The SOHO kit boosts voice and 3G signal only - NOT 4G. There aren't any comparably-priced solutions that will boost both 3G and 4G signal wirelessly throughout the RV (there are options to boost both 3G and 4G signal, but nothing exactly like this setup - contact us if boosting both 3G and 4G is important!).
  • Requires 10+ feet physical separation between the exterior and interior antennas. Works best in 30+ft RV. (see this diagram of sample installation)
  • Most complicated and time consuming installation.
  • Most expensive solution.
Also consider:
  • The Cradlepoint MBR95 is a more affordable alternative to the MBR1400 if you don't need the enterprise features.
  • In-Vehicle Repeater Kit is a lower-cost repeater that is easier to install and doesn't require the 10+ feet of separation (but not as powerful - devices need to be within a few feet of the interior antenna to benefit from the boosted signal).

The solutions described in these tabs are some of our most popular, but they are by no means the ONLY options available. Below is a list of more helpful resources for folks wanting to learn more about mobile broadband and other options:
