How to install an Omnidirectional Wifi Antenna on your Motorhome Roof

by Stuart Berry May 18, 2017

One of the best things about working at ITM Components is hearing from customers about their success stories. We heard from one of our customers, Anton Belodedenko from London. He and his wife were planning an extremely lengthy tour of Europe, so he kitted out his motorhome so that it was up to the job. They needed all of life's essentials - food, clothing...and wifi!

Anton ordered an omni-directional 2.4/5.8GHz 7dBi Wi-Fi antenna (HGV-2458-07U) from us. The antenna comes with a mounting bracket and bolts, so Anton attached the antenna bracket horizontally to the roof bars using a couple of runners and M6 bolts and used 90-degree elbow adapter on the end of a lightning arrestor to orientate the antenna correctly. Anton's blog outlines in detail how he set up his motorhome with solar panels, roof platform and roof ladder, as well as the wifi antenna.

Anton reports that "the antenna is working very well and even survived an electrical storm, which fried the lightning arrestor."

We would like to thank Anton for his photos of the antenna "on tour", driving through the south of France countryside. I'm sure Anton's wanderlust will inspire many other would-be itinerants!
