Why Should I buy the Maxview Roam Motorhome & Caravan WiFi System

  • Plug and play complete solution for fast and reliable connection in your vehicle
  • In-house built phone application for extra features such as data tracking
  • 5G-ready external antenna, future-proofed
  • Designed specifically for vehicle use.
  • Excellent technical support 5 days a week
  • 55 years designing and manufacturing connectivity products for motorhomes and caravans

How Does it Work?

The Roam X uses a superfast 4G router to create a WiFi hotspot in your vehicle. The 5G ready antenna significantly improves the reception of the signal and is omnidirectional, so it will perform wherever you are and without adjustment. Simply fit and forget.

The Roam X kit will also connect to existing WiFi connections (such as your home) and repeat the signal.

Do I need a SIM card?

The short answer is yes. There are many different types of SIM cards to choose from and how you choose them should depend on what type of user you are.

You will be streaming a lot of Netflix or BBC iPlayer? Then you will need a lot of data. If you are watching 1 hour of videos a day, you will need around 40GB of data a month. Double this if you are watching in HD.

You will just be listening to some music, browsing restaurants and checking your emails? This is much less intensive at around 10GB per month.

You can use a data calculator like this one from Tesco to estimate your data usage.

The other thing to consider is whether you need a single network SIM or multi-network SIM and how important having a connection all of the time is to you.

If you are generally in the same place then you can check what’s called a coverage checker, like this one from EE to see the coverage of EE in your specific location, you can do the same for O2, Three and Vodafone.

Alternatively, if you are travelling around a lot and it’s essential you stay connected, you can have a multi-network SIM card, like our partners BroadbandGo. This picks up the best network in the location you are in.

Since April 2022 both the Roam and Roam X products are being sent out with a 5GB free multi-network SIM card from our partner BroadbandGo. You will need to register this using their app to activate it.

Who is it For?

The Roam X motorhome and caravan WiFi system is perfect for anyone who wants superfast and reliable internet on the move. 

The Roam X WiFi system is also very popular with owners of campervans, van conversions, canal boats, trucks and horseboxes 

Will I be able to watch Netflix, BBC iPlayer or Amazon Prime?

Yes you absolutely can! The Roam X kit will keep you connected to all your favourite shows in rural and remote areas, as long as you have a subscription or license for the relevant service.

You will need about 2 – 3Mbps for standard definition streaming and about 3 – 5 Mbps for HD streaming which are achieved almost everywhere in the UK with the Roam X.

Music streaming services like Spotify need a maximum of 1Mbps.

How do I Install it?

Alternatively, a competent DIY’er could install the Roam X, for this you can refer to our Installation Video on YouTube or our written Maxview Roam installation instructions here.

If you are buying a new caravan or a second hand caravan you can mention to your dealer that you would like a Maxview Roam X WiFi kit installed and they may be able to do it for you. If they are not sure what it is then please ask them to contact us and we can advise them.

If you don’t want or need a hole in your roof, we also offer a raiser mount kit, providing the flexibility to mount your antenna anywhere on your roof and putting the cable through an existing entry.

What if I need to Extend the Cables That Come with the Kit?

Yes, extension cables can be purchased separately to allow a flexible mounting position to the router. They are available in 1m, 2m, 3m and 5m lengths.

What are the differences between the Roam and the Roam X?

The main difference is the speed capability of the router. The Roam X is a CAT6 router which means maximum speeds are 300 megabytes per second compared to 150 megabytes per second on the CAT4 Roam. The other difference is the capability to handle multiple heavy user simultaneously.

What if I already have a Roam Antenna Installed on my Roof?

In this situation we can offer the Roam X Upgrade pack to upgrade to the more powerful router and the relevant accompanying accessories.

You can see this product here.

What are the Main Technical Details I Need to Know?

  • The Roam X router provides super high performance
  • The antenna is compatible with all 5G frequency bands to ensure out customers are future-proofed when the 5G coverage becomes more widely available.
  • The router provides 2 SIM slots
  • 4 ethernet ports allowing additional wired devices
  • CAT 6 LTE chip with download speeds of up to 300mbps
  • MU-MIMO technology, for high speeds across multiple devices 2.4GHz WiFi and 5GHz WiFi meaning you can choose between 2 networks in your WiFi settings. 5GHz means faster speeds but lower range and 2.4GHz means lower speeds but longer range and better object penetration, such as walls.

Will it Work in Europe?

Yes, it will work in Europe. The Roam works across the UK and Europe but this is dependent on data provider and contract. Due to Brexit there are some restrictions on how much data you can use with your UK sim card in Europe, we go into more detail about this in our SIM card article.

What are the Contents of the Roam X Motorhome WiFi kit?

  • Omni-directional Roof Mount Antenna and Fixings
  • Cable with SMA connectors
  • 12v 4G Router
  • Mounting Bracket and Fixings 
  • 12V Cigarette Power Supply
  • Ethernet Cable

What about 5G Connectivity?

The Roam antenna is 5G ready and compatible with all 5G frequency bands as standard so it’s ready when this new technology arrives.

The router itself uses 3G and 4G. At the moment, the speeds which can be obained using our 3G/4G router and our antenna are sufficient for all every day uses of the internet, from checking emails to streaming Netflix or BBC iPlayer in HD.

5G is largely intended for futuristic technologies such as self-driving cars. If you are interested to learn more about the subject you can read our expert-written article on 5G here.

Will I be Able to Connect Smart Devices Such as Lights, CCTV Cameras and Smart Switches?

Yes, absolutely. You will be able to connect to the WiFi connection with your smart devices in the same way you connect them to your router at home.

It’s worth bearing in mind that the router will need to be continually powered for the WiFi connection to remain on, so if you are checking WiFi CCTV cameras then the router will need to be on also when you are not there. This may come down to what battery you have installed.

      • *5G is a term we are becoming increasingly familiar with, as mobile service providers continue to roll out the technology.

        At present, 5G is primarily designed to facilitate advanced applications beyond that of our mobile phones and 5G remains largely limited to built up urban areas, due to the short wavelength frequencies that it currently uses. For these reasons, the benefits of 5G to our customers remain limited. That said, as we continue to monitor the 5G roll out, the infrastructure continues to grow and there is discussion surrounding the use of longer wavelength 5G, which will ultimately result in a more accessible 5G network.

        Although the benefits are not quite there yet, there is little doubt that 5G coverage will continue to increase and will provide benefits to our customers in years to come, perhaps even in more rural locations. For this reason, we have integrated 5G capabilities into our antenna as standard to ensure our customers are futureproofed. This means, when the 5G network can benefit our customers, you can rest assured that the Roam antenna is fully compatible.

        A 5G router and SIM plan will be required to receive 5G connectivity.

        • The Roam is designed to work with any data service provider so you are free to use whatever network works best for you! You can use your provider if you already have one in place alternatively if you are choosing a network provider for your Roam it’s worth considering coverage for intended travel alongside the best deals and usage.

          If you travel to Scotland, EE’s coverage is regarded superior, whilst Vodafone proves popular for those travelling into Europe. The Three network is generally considered to offer competitive deals. Please check limitations of your network provider and Data SIM, especially when travelling abroad, the number of days abroad, usage and restrictions and roaming charges. It is always a good idea, when travelling abroad to carry a spare SIM which doesn’t have a shelf life or expire if not used.
