Hi Joe,
yes if you use the corners where front wall meets side wall and same at the back you should hit the woodern strut that runs from the top to the bottom, I say "should" because I dnot want to gurantee it but in my experience it is there 99% of the time.
Hope this is of some help and all the best,
Ian

This post is quite old now but rather than start another on the same subject and clutter up the forum, I thought it would be best to post here.

I also need to fit a TV antenna to my caravan but I don't fancy the idea of fastening to the caravan itself and piercing the metal skin, possibly causing potential leaks etc. So last year when I bought my caravan, I installed a satellite dish at the rear of the caravan on a home made tripod and as a temporary measure, I removed the jockey wheel from my caravans A frame and used the wheel fitting as a TV mount by mounting a 10 foot pole the same diameter as the jockey wheel with the TV antenna on top. This provides a very secure and stable mount but is of course right in front of the bay window and somewhat spoils the view. So how else can I install an antenna? I was wondering if I could get some kind of ground stake or something. Any ideas?
