I saw this on the Dish.com website:

Can I have a Hopper and a ViP 211k receiver on one account?
Yes, you can enjoy the Hopper Whole-Home HD DVR at home and still have a ViP 211k activated on the same account for your Tailgater®.

Is this really true that you can have a Hopper/Joey account with a ViP 211K receiver/Tailgater setup?
Equipment: 2 Hopper, 1 Joey [soon to be 2 Joeys]

If Hopper/Joey is being used in the home and the 211 is being used for RV, yes.

Just to clarify....I would just pay an additional receiver fee (for the 211) and have the same channel line up on the tailgater without a whole new monthly plan?

It should if the 211 qualifies for RV and is purchased.

They really don't care about the RV part... You can activate any one single owned 211/211k as long as the receiver itself has no balance.

2 Hoppers w/Sling / 2 Hopper 2000s / 1 Joey

1 ViP722k (separate account)

Technically the rule is only if it is for use in an rv/cv. How stringently that is enforced may be another story.
