Antenna dilemma

I talked to a knowledgable engineer at Wintenna a few days. I was hoping to order one model of their Boomerangs, but he discouraged me. Learning that we have fiberglass trailers, he said that the Boomerang Wintenna might perform only a little better than the similar Winegard that Casita was installing until sometime in 2002. They are very similar in design. The problem is, they are designed to work in conjunction with the metal roof of a conventional trailer or vehicle, but don't get the needed ''boost''--he had better terminology than that--from the fiberglass. We know the old Winegards were highly directional.

Later I was talking with Laura at Casita. She said they were now installing a rotating antenna from Barker Mfg. Co. From web site research, I think these are possibly manufactured by H. & H. Braund Mfg. They look like a rather difficult retrofit (at least the electric model.)

You newest Casita owners (2003 and perhaps late 2002): How are these antennas performing? Is it the electric model or the hand-crank model? (Wish I had asked Laura what the model number is!)
