x3 for flagpolebuddy. However, last year our 22 footer had two full size (3x5) flags on it when a very stiff wind came up. It broke the pole in half. That summer, we went to "The Rally" in Redmond Oregon and I brought the broken pole with me. They exchanged it for a brand new one right there on the spot without asking even what happened. It was even past the warranty period.

Not a ladder mount but I use a Sunsetter extendable flag pole with a park on base.

(Of course I removed the ladder and replaced it with a good one too)

Sunsetter is not the only company selling the kind of pole I use.

Advantage this kind of pole.....

It came with a "Ground sleeve" which, back when I still had a sticks and bricks I "Planted" in the ground.. I could use it both "on the road" at a campground and at home.

Home is where I park it!

I'm of the Flag pole buddy crowd. My friend Dave and I bought the 22' at Quartzsite this year. Rated for two flags up to 35mph wind.

How is the grounding issue addressed with this set up. Is the pole buried part way in the ground, or is there a rubber sleeve over the pole where it passes through that pipe.

I don't mean to toot my own horn but I came out with the silver/gray fiberglass flagpoles in 2004. We private labeled for Flagpole Buddy and Poles and Holders. You can purchase them direct at Blow Sand Products :: Get Wet & Dirty or from these two distributors websites. Flagpole Buddy makes a very nice 2 piece nylon RV ladder mount system. We also carry 7 other style powder coated steel mounts. In high wind, be cautious with the ladder mounts. The mount is only as strong as the RV ladder. Hitch mounts, tire/leveling jack mounts and frame mounts would be better in windy conditions. The great thing with fiberglass poles is that they are designed to flex in the wind unlike the thinner aluminum poles and they are also non-conductive so you don't have to worry about having a big lightning rod on your RV. Hope this helps.
