Good product, bad picture, need separation
Picture on the website was incorrect. When I messaged customer service, they were responsive and sent a note which said WeBoost had published the wrong picture. Unit worked as indicated. I installed this on a campervan with ~6' of vertical separation and 11' of horizontal separation. and could not get it to operate without interference. The unit still works, just at a reduced output. Without the unit, my van is similar to a faraday cage (well insulated and contains reflective material in cell signal range) with decibel ratings close to -110. With the unit on and nearby, I am around 70 to 80.
Great product that allows me to work remotel
We bought a Weboost Drive and an extra RV Antenna and mode the amplifier between our tow vehicle and our travel trailer. While driving, it allows me to do conference calls with less fear of losing the connection. Over the last two months we drove from VA to KS to MI, using it in the car and in fairly remote state parks and other campgrounds with good success. We use Visible for the unlimited data and can stream Netflix and Apple TV pretty reliably. I would recommend this unit. The one think I don't like is the phone needs to be sitting right on the inside antenna to work properly. It am going to see if we can buy a more powerful inside antenna for our RV so we can use it anywhere we are sitting.
Oh my! So very good!

We are full-time RVers. We were in a campground in the hills outside Deadwood SD and getting minimal bars and terribly slow and inconsistent cell data. There was one seat in the RV that could actually get data service. We decided to try the Drive Reach RV product. Given the return policy, it seemed a no risk situation. Within seconds of installing the booster, the words out of my wife's mouth were "Holy cow!". We could go anywhere within the RV and get LTE data speeds. It was absolutely wonderful. We have since traveled to Cheyenne WY and Central City CO and have had the same amazing experience. We plan to continue testing the product as we travel but it sure seems like I will NOT be returning it. We are so very happy with it. I wish I had given it a try when we were suffering with horrible signal coverage when we were at a somewhat remote campground in MN. I know, first world problem. We were able to snake the various cables through our RV so they were mostly hidden. Kudos for cable lengths! In addition to praising the technical aspects of the product, I also want to call out the customer service. It was outstanding. There was a potential issue with getting the product shipped to us before we left that campground near Deadwood and the customer service team clearly understood our situation and helped us out. Thank you, thank you, thank you Wilson Electronics engineers and customer service.
Don't waste your money
If you want a $500 paper weight, this will out preform any paper weight in this category. Seriously, after getting a replacement antenna, the boost still doesn't work. Very disappointed in this product.
Product did not work, possible parts defective
Received the product and it did not offer any boost inside my rv. I have strong signal outside. Spoke with agent and went thru TS steps and found products may be bad. My signal outside is -85db to -92db, inside rv with booster on it is -122db and with booster off still -122. The antenna is installed at the highest point. Waiting on replacement to verify if it is bad. they are on backorder at the moment
Recently upgraded our 8 year old Wilson phone booster to the WeBoost "Drive Reach RV". I created a telescoping mast using PVC pipe (1", 1 1/2", and 2") to increase the height of the antenna to about 12' above the rig. We are in an extremely remote location outside of Kanab UT, but I now have a usable signal -- it's not a great signal, but since the tower I am connecting to is 43 miles away near Jacob Lake AZ, I'm pretty happy with it. I can make calls and connect to the internet!
We enjoy remote camping. Since my wife works part time as an independent consultant, a good cell signal is a must. Until we installed a Drive Reach RV our site selection was limited. Now with the booster we can expand our area. Zoom, text and email work great. Coupled with our hotspot all is well. It truly works.
Exuma Land and Sea park finally in range!!

We had a Zboost for years and we could get email overnight in the Exuma Bahamas Land and sea park but no interactive internet. We just upgraded to the Weboost and we can now get interactive internet in the park and stream in most other areas of the Exuma chain of islands. I am installing the antenna on our RV this week and look forward to using it on our upcoming RV trip out west.
In no way shape or form would I spend the money for this
We spent the $500 for this device and nomatter where we go it does not help our servis at all and would never recommend anyone buy it not only does it not work the way they advertise but if you have any questions good luck getting ahold of anything other than a answering service

I was camping on Baker Lake about 25 miles north of cell service in a National Forest and had zero bars of service (Verizon). I was skeptical because the instructions said the cell phone needs at least one bar for the booster to work. I hooked up the outside antenna and ran the wire through the screen door to the booster inside. From there I had the inside antenna on the dinette and plugged the booster into a 75w portable inverter and used a 12 volt outlet. Almost instantly I had one bar and was able to talk and text. Not sure if I'll permanently install it now and may just keep it handy if needed for those rare occasions.
