Welcome to Caravan Satellite System.

We have a completely different idea about sales at the caravan satellite system website.


We have listed not only the products that we sell but have also listed products that we do not sell, so that you can make an informed choice.


Whilst we would prefer that you purchase your satellite equipment from us, we also understand that we may not have what you are looking for.

So if a product is listed without anadd to cart button we do not sell it. Therefore this product will have a "Read More..." link to the best place to purchase the procuct instead.


We like to think that we listen to you when it comes to how we run our business and this is what you the reader asked for. We also hope you like our way of doing business.


If you have or use any of the satellite dishes listed then please give us your comments and we will share them with our thousands of readers.

Other component parts

The Caravan Satellite System Receiver box

SKY Digi-box

The dish or dome is indeed the main component part of any caravan satellite system but you also have to consider the receiver. This can be either a SKY box, a Free To Air (FTA) receiver or a UK FREESAT box.

The Sky box is becoming a thing of the past following Sky's decision to stop selling the Sky box as a stand alone unit. They have advised that the Sky digibox can only be purchased witha contract now.

Satellite Tuner or Sat-Finder

This is a vital part of the fitted manual and portable systems, but is not required for the automatic system. The sat-finder can be either a simple device that whistles or a complicated device that shows the satellite you are on, signal strength and signal quality.

NEW!! Mobile Broadband

Mobile Broadband

Mobile Broadband allows you to connect to the internet wherever you are, regardless of whether you are in a Wi-Fi hotspot or near a phone line. The information isn't received through a fixed-line modem so you don't have to worry about line rental and you don't always have to connect to the net using the same computer. In the same way that your mobile phone works, you can access the internet all over the country (and overseas if you like) as long as your service provider (the mobile broadband company you sign up to) covers the area that you're in
