I have the first generation Winegard Carryout--7 years now and still performing. Stays in basement when not in use, place it anywhere there is clear view of southern sky. Portables are good for treed locations to find a clear view. I have also placed it on top when setup for several days. Would not recommend this one to be placed permanently on top--too large in my mind.
Anytime you mount one permanently, you can have problems when parking in a treed area. Some use both--one on roof and portable for heavy tree areas, but sometimes you just have to give up on seeing thru the trees.
I also us an iPhone app called DishPointer/DP AR Pro that allows me to see the sats and know where to place the unit with a clear view to the sats.

When you get to that point, if making a reservation, ask if the space is 'satellite view' or some such description. Many parks understand that folks need to be parked where they can use the sat; kind of irritating to get sent to a space with tall trees to the south when you could have been 2 spaces over and away from the trees...
