NOTE: If you plan on using a Hopper 3 in your RV, then the only option is using a 1000.2 dish.
For DISH TV users, the two most commonly used 3-LNB open-face dishes are the 1000.2 and the 1000.4.
A 1000.2 comes standard with Western Arc (satellites 110, 119, 129) LNBs and a 1000.4 with Eastern Arc (satellites 61.5, 72.7, 77) LNBs.
However, both of these dishes can be configured for the Western Arc and the Eastern Arc satellites. Note that a 1000.2 set up with Eastern Arc LNBs will only receive sats 61.5 and 72.7.
Here is a photo comparison between the 1000.2 and 1000.4 (Click on a photo to enlarge):
