Default Need info on antenna setup in camper

I am in an RV trailer as a permanent camper. I would like to hook up my Ham Radio, but not sure on what kind of antenna to use or a antenna setup. It is further complicated by the fact that the campground I am in does not allow permanent antennas. Any suggestions?

A long wire on top of the RV will work it works better with a 30' extension out the back tied to a fence. This is using an AH 4 tuner.
Hope this helps

What bands/frequencies are you wanting to operate?
That will determine what antennas you have available to you, and dependent upon the antenna will determine what mount systems may work for your given situation.
