We bought an Ariel that attaches to the side of the cabin Comes in a box small enough to sit in the seat storage,then fits together . We thread the cable through the cabin zip,which sits along the zip,between the cabin and th canvas to the tv. Always get a great picture.

Hi there, you can buy a bracket that clamps onto the jockey wheel at one side and clamps onto a mast at the other with. the aerial fixed to the mast.If one bracket does not clear the beds ,then buy two and clamp them together.Most caravan/camping stores sell them and a well known web auction site will

On the Pennine the bedroom folds over the jockey wheel so the clamp you put the link for blueexpo97 wouldn’t work. Hope you have found something bungalowfishing. 😊

That type won't work on a Pathfinder or any type with the door on the side as the beds cover the jockey wheel and A frame once the camper is open.

Over the past 15 years we have had 2 Pathfinders and for about 12 of those years had problems getting decent TV reception , We tried 12 volt and 240 volt signal boosters the, aerial on a stick trick non of them were any good,
Eventually the penny dropped and I realised that we already had a good aerial in the loop of the camper frame.
What a revelation this has been, it has enabled us to almost always get good reception. I cant help but wonder when i see others wresting with poles and aerials,

When we had our Pennine sterling we used a ground spike like this.
