Wineguard elite 7550...this antenna seems to be rated pretty good by tom's guide. Mounting it on a roof of a camper, would it withstand the wind while driving?

If you had a mount that folded flat, parallel to the roof of the camper, you would be much better off. There is kind of a "buffer" layer of calmer air that is right against a surface like that. I think sustained 70mph wind would break off the long antenna rods.
Or if you have a ladder to the roof, mount it on there and then drop it below the roof for travel.
