RV owners can now enjoy a new standard in reliability aboard their coaches thanks to the TracVision R1 from Middletown, Rhode Island-based KVH Industries, Inc.
The compact, 13.5 inch TracVision R1 brings hundreds of channels of premium satellite TV programming from DISH Network or DIRECTV to any motorhome, travel trailer, or fifth-wheel trailer travelling in the continental U.S.—even while the vehicle is in motion, according to a KVH news release.
“Adding satellite TV is an excellent way to make a motorhome truly feel like home,” says Jim George, KVH’s director of sales for satellite products.
“The TracVision R1 allows you to enjoy your favorite shows, news, weather, sports, and even cartoons with the grandkids in your RV just as you would in a traditional home. The TracVision R1′s compact design and outstanding reliability make it a valuable addition to any vehicle, especially with KVH’s nationwide network of factory-certified dealers providing easy-to-find installation and service wherever you travel.”
Weighing just 7.5 pounds, the in-motion TracVision R1 brings satellite TV programming to the road and destinations throughout the continental U.S.
The system offers in-motion performance typical of larger antennas. The TracVision R1 is small in size, easy to set up, has a single-cable design, and has Whisper Drive motor technology.
It also comes in two configurations: the TracVision R1ST includes an exclusive, integrated 12V DIRECTV receiver/controller.
For those who prefer DISH Network or want to easily switch among satellite TV service providers, the TracVision R1DX offers a 12V multiservice interface box/controller that supports virtually all home receivers from DISH Network and DIRECTV.
