Sould I even bother...CB Antenna

I have been thinking more about Airmapper's antenna mount dilemma. If he is preparing for the event I think he is, there probably isn't enough time for this option, but it seems to me what he needs is a location high enough to maximize performance without interfering with his roof top tent. Of all the options, a K400 mount attached to the rear hatch appeals to me the most but after looking at the photos I see that the antenna would hit the crossbars for the roof top tent when the hatch is raised and the antenna is parallel with the roof top.

Hope this generates some ideas.
Thanks for the ideas Mr Bills. I'll keep thinking on it and see what happens. I think what I have will work okay for my upcoming trip, but I would like to get it to where I don't have to swap out antennas, have it 100% operational 100% of the time.

If I had a tubing bender and more importantly, time to goof off, the whole roof rack and air dam would come off, and I'd do something like a GOBI, and the CB antenna would be ********** in the center of the roof about where the air dam / box is now. A RTT would be behind that so no big deal.

No matter what you do there will be a sacrifice. I wouldn't get a new rack just to accommodate a CB antenna.
