The three best WiFi antennas to receive internet in a camping, caravan or boat.
When we go on a trip we want to have WiFi, it is a basic need and more and more necessary. We also want to use it on several devices at once, such as tablet, mobile, laptop etc .; Of course, we also want to connect inside the caravan, cabin or camping tent. We no longer have to go out with the laptop and move around the campsite to find a corner with WiFi coverage.
If your boat wants to improve the WiFi coverage, so that they stop producing cuts, you can also install one of these WiFi Kit since the antenna is completely waterproof and is prepared to withstand water and any atmospheric situation on the outside.
This summer, as long as the campsite where you are going to spend your holidays, have a good Wi-Fi hotspot at your disposal, you will enjoy WiFi coverage inside your caravan. You just have to install any of the 3 simple solutions for WiFi connection in the campsites that we propose below.

The system that we offer you consists of outdoor WiFi antenna plus WiFi router inside the caravan allows you to share a Wi-Fi Hotspot between several devices, such as an iPad, a tablet, a mobile phone and several laptops simultaneously .
Why does not the Wi-Fi signal arrive at a campsite on a plot far from the center?
If you travel a lot through different campsites, you will have verified that sometimes you are parked near the main building of the campsite and the Wi-Fi reception works well. But if you choose a comfortable and quiet plot in the lower part of the campsite, next to the river and you have some trees in between, it turns out that the WiFi signal is weak. In this situation it is normal that you connect well with your laptop to the outside of the caravan, but it is impossible to connect the mobile and inside does not work any WiFi device.
There are three factors that generally cause the loss of WiFi signal in a campsite:
- The distance: The further away from the WiFi access point of the campsite, the weaker the signal. It can be solved by installing a powerful and directional antenna, directed towards the emitting point.
- Obstacle barriers like trees or vehicles. It is solved by placing the WiFi receiver on the roof of the caravan, in this way the WiFi antenna will be higher than the trees and cars that previously interfered braking the WiFi reception.
- The walls of the caravan or hut: Inside the caravan the WiFi enters with difficulty due to the walls, which if they are made of metal, can completely prevent them from passing through them. It is solved by placing the WiFi receiver antenna outside the caravan.
There are two types of WiFi antennas that we can mount in our caravan depending on the use that we are going to give you, we can choose a directional or an omnidirectional WiFi antenna. The choice of one type of antenna or another always depends on whether we are going to connect to a single point whose position we know well, then we chose a directional antenna and we oriented it to that point. If on the contrary we are going to connect to different WiFi networks, we will move a lot and we do not know exactly where the WiFi signal comes from, so we will mount an omnidirectional antenna with 360º coverage.
1- Omnidirectional antenna pack + Open-Wrt router
This is the easiest and easiest solution to install. The recommendation is to first mount the omnidirectional 13dbi antenna prepared for long range on the roof of the caravan. Installation is simple as it comes with bracket and mounting screws. If we do not want to leave it fixed, it can also be used from the inside and then remove it through the window and attach it with a suction cup on the wall when we are standing.
Our recommendation is to mount the antenna first and test it with any Windows computer. These powerful WiFi antennas work with all operating systems up to Windows 10. Then you can add the Open-WRT repeater router to cover several devices at once. The Omnidirectional Rocket WiFi antenna of 13dbi uses the RT3070 Chip that is compatible with the Open-WRT router
