A Caravan TV Antenna that just works!

Wouldn’t it be nice to have a Caravan TV Antenna that doesn’t need to be wound up and positioned in the direction of the closest Television Broadcasting Tower?


The Cowfish VanTenna is the Caravan Antenna that you are looking for. The VanTenna is the next generation of Caravan TV Antennas. This antenna provides you with TV reception, regardless of the orientation your Caravan or Motorhome is parked in. With the VanTenna there is no need to wind up an antenna and attempt to point it in the direction of the nearest Television Broadcasting Tower. There is no need to wind the antenna down in bad weather or storms. There is no wind noise coming from the antenna as you sit inside trying to watch TV. There is also no chance of breaking the antenna when travelling over corrugated roads as there are no hinges or moving parts. You simply turn the Caravan TV Antenna on and scan for TV channels on your television. The VanTenna does all the work for you!

Your VanTenna will receive signals equally from all directions. This means that you can pick up TV channels from multiple Television broadcasting towers at the same time. As a result, you will be able to watch all available channels in your area, regardless of which TV tower is sending out the channel signal.

The VanTenna is 302mm in diameter and is also 302mm high. We have designed the VanTenna specifically with this height in mind, as most caravan air-conditioning units are also 300mm in height. The result is that the VanTenna does not protrude any higher than what is already installed on your caravan roof, but also gives you the best design to receive Digital Television signal.

Our VanTenna has also been designed with the Australian sun in mind. We all know that the Australian sun can be extremely harsh and unrelenting. So, in order to safeguard the life of our VanTenna, we were uncompromising when it came to making certain that all the plastic on the VanTenna is UV stable. This will ensure the life of the VanTenna, so you have no need to worry.

Caravan Digital TV Antenna

The VanTenna is specifically designed to be compatible with HDTV signal in Australia (DVB-T). The VanTenna is a highly advanced Television Antenna and comes with a built-in high gain and low noise amplifier. This amplifier has a cutting edge 3G/4G/5G filter to provide super clear High Definition Television picture and sound quality. The VanTenna enables you to receive more free local TV channels with an enhanced reception range and provides better quality over conventional Caravan TV antennas.

Television services are broadcast either horizontally-polarised or vertically-polarised. Although most television signals are horizontally polarised, some are vertically polarised. Your TV antenna should be designed in a way that it can receive both polarities. Omni-directional antennas receive signals equally from all directions, but a downside of other omni-directional TV antennas is that they are only horizontally polarised, meaning that they can’t pick up vertical polarised signal. There is an exceptions to this, as the Cowfish VanTenna incorporates a unique design and utilizing additional antenna elements compared to a standard omni-directional antenna. The VanTenna is one of a kind and a true dual polarised antenna, receiving both vertical and horizontal signal.

The VanTenna unit comes in two distinct models:


Model A comes with a TV connector (F type) on the bottom of the unit. This version is ideal for new antenna installations on a caravan where a coax cable has not yet been installed, or when replacing on older TV antenna that had an internal coax cable, for instance a King Jack TV antenna. This version also includes an integrated AM/FM antenna.

Model B comes with a TV connector (F type) on the side of the unit. This version is ideal for customers that already have a TV coax cable coming through their roof, that connects to an older antenna on the outside, for instance a Winegard or AntennaTek.

The VanTenna premium package comes with a Cowfish Television wall plate with built in coax selector and power injector, as well as 10 metre Television COAX cable and of course the VanTenna unit.
