It is equally important to make sure that every RV is outfitted with all the accessories and trappings of home that a customer wants. Outside of interior décor and home entertainment systems, one of the more significant requests now is connectivity, specifically cellular service. For Wilson Electronics, manufacturers of a wide range of cellular signal booster technology options, connectivity has been front-and-center since 1999, when founder Jim Wilson started the company. Product Evolution While primarily focused on cellular boosting technology now, the Wilson name has focused on communications innovations for multiple decades, according to Jon Peckman, vice president of sales at Wilson Electronics. Peckman says Jim Wilson initially formed Wilson Antenna in the 1980s as a manufacturer of mobile antennas for CB applications. Since then, the company has grown and evolved into Wilson Electronics, with its quest for developing cellular-boosting devices. In 2014, the company launched its consum- er-oriented brand line, weBoost. In 2015, it added Wil- sonPro, a commercial-grade brand. Today, the company serves multiple markets, including residential, com- mercial, trucking, and RV industries, with its numerous product lines.
