Hi, I live near my parents and use a usb wifi antenna that plugs into my laptop to get onto the internet. (I cant see their signal without it) is there any way to hook the antenna into a router so that we can use other devices like kindle and phones to wirelessly access the internet in our home?

No you can't do that, but there are other options.

How far away do they live, and do you have line of sight (no houses or trees in the way)?

Hi, looking for something similar for my motorhome, I consider buying an Alfa R36 11n 3G USB Router (link)

An extender at the point where the signal is weak won't help. How far is the motor home from the wireless radio Internet source? Also, is the motor home metal -- if so that is an added issue, as it will significantly attenuate EM signals including wireless Internet.
