RV Cellular Booster by WeBoost // Review & Giveaway

We installed our first WeBoost cell booster almost one year ago and our RV Life hasn’t been the same since.

Cell Boosters serve one function: to increase & amplify cell signal. This means we can go from a weak 1 or 2 bar signal where we’re dropping calls to a full 4 or 5 bar signal with vocal clarity. The booster also increases cellular internet speeds. At rural boondocking locations we’ve been able to amplify an unusable cell signal into a strong signal capable of streaming music and movies.

The New WeBoost RV Booster

Wilson Electronics recently released a WeBoost Cell Booster made specifically for RV travelers. The 4G-X unit uses the same reliable boosting station, but has upgraded many of its other features to suit the unique needs of RVers.

Sleek Exterior Antenna 

The first feature to receive a make-over in this RV package was the exterior antenna. The updated antenna is sleek and easy to install. It’s white coloring and soft curves allow it to blend into the RV’s shape without being an eyesore or looking like a bulky addition. It also easily mounts to an exterior ladder, making installation fast and simple.

Our testing proved that the antenna can pull some powerful signal as well. We’ll show you the results in just a bit!

Powerful Interior Antenna

Separating itself from the previous 4G-X packages, the interior antenna also received a serious upgrade. This antenna is used to spread an amplified signal throughout the cabin of an RV and compared to older models, this antenna can powerfully do just that. We noticed a larger signal spread, but also found it hard to gauge specifics given the tiny interior of our camper.

Hard Wire Option

The two previous Cell Boosters we installed were made to be used in vehicles (cars & semi-trucks). Because of this, they received their power through a DC automobile power adapter. Another defining detail of the RV package is that it gives you the option to hardwire directly to the RV’s internal DC power. We love this option because it frees-up a power outlet and gives the booster constant access to the battery power of the RV.

Clear Install Instructions

The last aspect of the RV package that we find helpful is the packaging. Each component is packaged in its own box with numbered steps on each individual box. With the previous WeBoost systems that we’ve installed, it was kind of “figure it out as you go” because we had to adapt automobile installation instructions to make sense in our trailer.

This RV package takes away any installation guess work with its clearly marked and compartmentalized instructions.

Test Results

We set up the RV Booster and tested its functionality! Let us first note, at our current location we’re already receiving a strong cell signal so we won’t be able to test the booster in extreme conditions. But, we’ll still give it a whirl and see what type of measurable gains we’re receiving.

The first test was with our T-Mobile hotspot. The download speeds remained the same with the booster on and off (right around 10mbps). However, we did see an over 200% gain in upload speeds with the booster on!

Next we tested our AT&T cell phone data speeds. As you can see, there is about a 15% increase overall in both upload and download speeds.

Overall

Since we began using the WeBoost line of products we’ve seen large differences in our cellular abilities, both with calling and using the internet. This RV package offers a lot of customized features that make it a good option for those who travel often. We recommend checking out their product line and finding which option works best for you.

  2. Building small pontoon style houseboats (for rentals) and there are a lot of areas were there is little to no cell service (dead spots ) wonder if this would be a viable remedy for boosting the signal on cells.. people love there I phones and internet would be a benefit for sure as a rental.. benefit….

  3. I noticed a huge difference between the AT&T and the T-Mobil upload speeds which convinced me that if one has the T-M service, it makes a WHOLE LOT OF SENSE. We have the AT&T service and wonder if the 15% diff of a already high up-load number would be a game changer?

  4. I like the new interior and exterior antenna’s. I currently use we boost but have the trucker antenna and the little flat interior antenna that has no range inside the rv at all.
    so I’d really like to give this a try, maybe I’ll win…

  5. AWESOME!!! The hardest part of going full-time is leaving our children and grandchildren behind. Having the ability to successfully connect with them most anytime brings hope and comfort to our new lifestyle.

  7. I worry about getting cell service for emergencies. This product looks promising to alleviate my stress of traveling in the motorhome. Would love to win one!! But if I don’t, I’ll certainly get one ordered.

  8. I’m glad it works so well I have been camping with no signal or almost no signal so many time and it gets kind of scary to think that I could have an emergency and not be able to get help. It could actually be a life saver in some instances.

  10. You two Rock! Thank you for this equipment Review – we just went full time in December and haven’t gotten our systems set yet – been learning and was not quite sure what to do – We enjoy Boondocking as our favorite locations to spend the night, but Cell service can be very weak – and wanting to make sure we can connect to 911 or family is limiting our Boondocking options – we would love to have a WeBoost!!

Hope to see your family someday.
