Carriage Inc. will be offering the Winegard SensarPro TV signal meter in its 2012 models, including the Cameo, Carri-Lite and Royals International luxury fifth-wheel lines.
According to a press release, the Winegard SensarPro is an “all-in-one product” that acts as a TV signal meter with an adjustable amplifier and wall-plate power supply.
“With the difficulties customers experience in locating digital signals we knew we needed a solution,” said Aaron Engberg, director of mobile products for Winegard Co. “With a single push of a button, the scan search option quickly finds all available programming in the area.”
“We already offer amplified Sensar antennas on our fifth-wheels,” said Greg Kitson, Carriage product development leader. “So we wanted to offer the latest digital TV signal meter technology in the SensarPro to make TV entertainment on the road simple, fast and frustration free for our customers. We specialize in producing luxury RVs and the SensarPro adds that luxury entertainment touch to our product line.”

Winegard Co. introduces the SENSAR IV amplified antenna, which integrates its SENSAR III antenna with the UHF-enhanced Wingman antenna for increased over-the-air TV viewing. Optimized for the new DTV spectrum, the new SENSAR IV receives all available VHF/UHF/digital channels, enabling viewers to enjoy watching all local programming in the U.S. while the RV is parked. The antenna can be raised, lowered and rotated with a hand crank from inside the RV and lowers to only 4 inches above the roof while traveling. The SENSAR IV head requires 46 1/4-inch long by 15 1/4-inch wide unobstructed roof space while it is stowed. Winegard product No. RVW-395 includes the amplified antenna and lift assembly, as well as a +12 VDC white power supply with on/off switch, white interior control parts and 20 feet of 75 ohm coax cable. MSRP: $159.00. For those who already own a SENSAR II or III antenna, Product No. RVW-205, the SENSAR IV Integrated Amplified Replacement Head Only, retails for $69.99.

Winegard Co. introduces the Carryout MP1 manual portable satellite TV antenna. The Carryout is extremely compact and weighs only nine pounds. “Extensive market research showed us that there is a definite niche in the market for consumers who want a portable and affordable satellite TV antenna,” said Aaron Engberg, director of Winegard’s mobile products, in a news release. “Not everyone who wants a satellite TV system has an RV to mount it on, so our new Carryout MP1 satellite TV antenna is aimed directly at those consumers.” The manual antenna stores in a compact, durable case that doubles as the antenna base when in use. The case features an easy-grip handle for carrying or locking down. A bubble level, compass and elevation markings molded into the base make set-up quick and easy. The Carryout MP1 comes with 25 feet of coax cable to allow for optimal antenna placement. The case with antenna measures 16 inches wide, 18 1/2 inches high and 10 inches deep. The unit supports two receivers (not included), and it is compatible with DIRECTV (standard only) and DISH Network (standard and HD). MSRP: $199.
