Rock bottom is the firm foundation i rebuilt my life on. J k Rowling
I have a status aerial which works fine but is a bit big to leave on the roof permenantly, also it requires a booster.
I imagine that the above aerial would not be as good as the status one going by the size of it?
I think the main reason that TV isn't that important to me personally is, It Kinda ends up Dictating your Habits, & therefore your Life without you realising it, !. When you Move & Having to be Parked up somewhere suitable, Settled because X is on at 18:00 followed by Y at 20:00 and before you know it you have spent 4 nights a week shut in your metal box, Blinds drawn, watching TV with your Earphones on To minimize Noise on-board & therefore Ensure minimum outside interest (Which is The whole point of having a 'Stealth Camper') Then there's the Power requirements it needs & Therefore has the need to be replaced, Then a possible Areal Booster, & the Power that needs etc etc it all mounts up, especially if as you say you fall asleep with it on !. You see how one thing leads to another !. & all this because people want a bit of company !.
Ive got an Obvious Motorhome, No Stealth about it. & I find that in a lot of Park ups it attracts LESS interest than a Panel Van Parked up in the same place. as People Know why im there, its obvious. I spend as much time OFF of it as ON, even if I'm sat just outside having a Coffee looking at a Map !. I find Plenty of opportunities to interact that with people when parked up by way of a simple 'Hello' a 20 min or more conversation can easily follow, Sometimes more if similar interest are apparent.
I'm alone, Company is of course always welcome, But I'm certainly NOT Lonely.
My On-board Entertainment & Communications are -
My Phone, My Laptop & My Hard Drive
With around 650 Movies, Some TV series & Loads of Music. That I can Pick up n Put down n Pick up again from where I left off whenever I want. Catch up on the News, Weather, Forum, Email & Speak to my mates, Whilst listening to the Radio. it takes Minimal Power, Has its Own Battery & is easy to re Charge PLUSS yes if I want I can watch catch up TV I Player on it !. then chuck it in a draw out the way.
Blinking Hell I Ramble on don't i.
'stealth' camping isn't for me about not being seen so much as leaving no trace (Barring a spot I've parked at usually being cleaner when I've left) of me ever having being there.
Thanks, it's not that we watch much tv but it would be nice to have the aerial on the roof permanently so it's only a matter of just switching it on. The status one is good but a tad big.
Drifting off on a tangent now... oops
Just love driving around the UK in my stealth camper!
