No WiFi signal in RV Park--can I boost it?

I am currently living in an RV Park with free broadband WiFi available. Unfortunately though, where I'm positioned I have no reception of the isgnal. Occasionally my computer will pop up sayign that it's detected the network but when I try to connect it will lose it. Now I'm afraid I really dont' knwo much at all about Wireless Networking... is there some other sort of card I can get that will allow me to connect? Anyhitng I can do to boost the signal? How about an external antenna? I have an older 5th wheel with a steel body instead of fiberglass... woudl that be wreaking havok?
Sorry to be so clueless, but what can I do? Also...*if* i can connect.. what woudl it take for me to extend my network to somone else who is also having the same problem but who is 9 spots further away form the Router? Is it possible for me to purchase a router and share my connection with teh main access point over my router?
Thank you for all of your help
