About two months ago, I was looking at RV's just for kicks, and noticed that RV's don't come with Batwings any more. Now they come with something that looks like a miniature stealth airplane:

My understanding is that you don't have to "crank" these any more. However, you can still spin them around, you just don't "crank them up."

They are supposed to be better for HD reception.

Anyone have one or know someone who does?

This type of antenna or close form of it was around back in 1980. You had them on Van's that people used to camp in. The older ones did not turn but were used to pick up TV over the air. I guess we have come full circle now. I can see a low tree limb removing this antenna from the roof of a high 5th wheel or motorhome.
