On many motorhomes, the TV antenna is mounted on the roof near the front of the vehicle. This can cause the leading "wing" of the antenna to be bent upward from its lowered position when the coach is being driven in certain wind conditions.
On a recent trip, after experiencing some rather brisk side and frontal winds, we discovered the leading wing of our TV antenna bent straight up.

Hiking Together -- At Two Different Paces Print Email
Is it possible for an avid hiker and a non-hiker to travel successfully in an RV? I have learned the answer to that question, but it has not been easy.
