Ham antennas with 5th Wheel

I would love to hear what others are doing for antennas with their 5th wheels. I move a lot so I need something quick to set up an take down. Also, most places I stay will not let me hang a dipole in the trees.
Have considered a vertical (32-40') attached to an antenna tuner.

If you have pictures of your set up I would love to see them.

I use a screwdriver. I have it mounted at the rear of the trailer on top of the ladder. I lower and raise it with an electric motor. It works fairly well.

I use a Buddipole for HF and an Arrow 2m/440 ground plane both store in the Buddipole bag.
