SpaceX Starlink for RV use is available as of March, 2022 and taking Internet connectivity to the fastest speeds we ever for who work from the road. The RV and trucker experiments enable Starlink connectivity while driving. This enables connection anywhere you travel and even while moving.
UPDATE- Starlink mobility has been formalized by SpaceX as a $25/month feature. It is $135 per month for Starlink service if you add this additional $25/month feature.
BREAKING: @SpaceX is adding a portability feature to its Starlink service for an additional $25/month, which'll allow users to temporarily move their Starlink to new locations in order to receive service anywhere within the same continent active coverage exists. –@thesheetztweetz pic.twitter.com/5U6eXfaItC

A Tesla Model X owner has placed a dish on the back of his model X to get 200 Mbps while driving on the highway.
200Mbps from a @SpaceX #Starlink terminal mounted to a @Tesla #ModelX while driving down the freeway at 100km/h. Many thanks to @Jays200 for awesome steel fabrication.

Mobile roaming has been enabled, so phased array antenna can maintain signal while on moving vehicle.
They have attached the round Starlink dish to a tire on the roof of a truck and it has worked well.
Updating software to reduce peak power consumption, so Starlink can be powered from car cigarette lighter.

Tucks Truck has a round dish for his experiments. Pat Chics (https://outbackusawirelessllc.com) seems to have done the most extensive experimentation with a rectangular dish. Others are also experimenting with Starlink roaming.
