Flag Pole

Hello. I like to have a flag pole on the outside of my camper. However I do not want to drill into the side wall. Any simple suggestions on how I can have a flag up?

We put a flag pole stand that goes under a tire as we back into a spot in the campground. Depending on the size of your flag pole I've also heard others that create mounts that use the ladder on the back of their rig. Our pole is 20 feet tall and is very secure with the under tire mount.

I had mine on my ladder, attached with some pvc. Dont have a ladder on the new trailer, I like the under tire, but with awning and slide not happening. Under the front tongue jack.. good idea. Especially with the flex pcv will have, won’t have to worry about scrapping the trailer... sorry picture x2.

AST, I don't know what EMT is.

Are you asking who manufactures the Weather Station unit (Acurite) or what sort of mount I have?

I made the mount to the square bumper and am using chain link fence "Top Rail" for the vertical pole.

The sensor array is about 8 feet over the RV roof so that it samples "clean" air.

I have a similar mount at home that puts the sensors about 14 feet above the 6 foot fence.



My home unit is on Wi-Fi so I can see home weather on my cell phone while away.

If you are serious about it and want to try to build one, it is easy and I'll be glad to send you the details with pictures.

EMT is metal electrical conduit, but the top rail makes sense.

The top rail comes in 10 foot lengths and is swaged on one end so that they can be stacked.

I cut the 2 top rails to 7 1/2 feet so that they fit in my 8 foot side-to-side storage bay.

Do you want to build one?

I have used this company for Flag poles and mounts:
http://flagpoles2go.com/

I have a rear bumper mount and one of their telescoping poles along with a blaster light. They have many kinds of mounts including ladder, bumper, tire mount and hitch mounts plus all sorts of lights, flags etc.

There are several pipe-to-pipe clamps shown. One of them may work for you to attach a flag to your ladder.

For temporary attachment use wing nuts instead of hex nuts.
