The best location to mount the antenna is on the center of the roof. That will get you a good ground plane.
I run mine mounted similar to you. Yes a better antenna will help. You should also be able to get a better swr. You should aim for 1-1 match. I sure hope you are using an SWR meter and not that little meter on the radio. As the one built into the radio is not very accurate.
