Flag Pole Recommendation

Looking for a new Flag Pole to replace my existing ladder mount pole. I would like one that is capable to fly two 3 X 5 Flags.
The ones with the pad that goes under a tire etc. will not work as the awning is on one side and a slide on the other so the only place one of those will work is under a landing leg. Recommendations ?


Dave

That is pretty cool (60's term). I am sure there is a market for that. Can you say millionaire ?. Start making them in the garage/patio.

If you do not tow. or if you remove yoru tow gear (on a motor home) they make a mount that fits a 2" receiver for the back of the rig. Very nice.

IS this for a trailer? You may be able to put a 2" receiver on the trailer too. front or rear, to hold the flab pole I can easily make one that mounts on a TT's A-Frame.. 5Ers are a bit more ..er.. complex but consider dropping the park on under the jack. I do NOT recommend that but consider it.

Mine is lashed to the side of the RV and the "mount' is staked so the RV provides support to keep it from going over and the ground keeps it from sliding about. and tipping over. Oh, Pole is a SunSetter
