FLAG POLES what does everyone use

We fly our Nation and our State Colors wherever we go.
This is a 20' x 2" dia. telescoping pole. Inserted in a base attached to a 2" receiver hitch. Will put a solar powered light on top so i don't have to bring the flags in every night. Just curious what everyone else has out there.

I use 4 aluminum army poles, they PO had a pole holder on the ladder and they fit perfectly, then a zip tie up at the top for piece of mind. The poles are around $5 at any surplus store. The star and strips is a 6x9 and the others are 3x5 for a reference. We saw 30mph winds that weekend with no issues

I use the bottom half of an old patio umbrella pole, mounted upside down with hose clamps on the RV ladder. I drilled a hole and put a bolt through it about one foot from the top (which was the bottom on its previous mission). Our American Flag we use at the house just slides right in the top of the pole. The bolt keeps the flag pole from slipping down the umbrella pole. The umbrella pole stays on the RV. If I had another one, I could make the flag fly higher.

Cost $0.00 with stuff laying around the house. I whipped this out after pricing flag poles at the RV store at over $100.00. Cheap? Yes.

I don't remember the name, but mine mounts on the rear ladder with a collapsible flag pole.

I found Flag Pole Buddy ladder mount 2.0 in the discount bin at CW for 20 bucks. I asked three people if that was the right price, and they said yes. So I bought it and ran out of there.

2" collapsible fiberglass 22' pole from RV Flag Pole Guys. Came with a nice little bag to store it in at 48". I usually only fly two flags. Stars and Stripes and whatever racing series I am watching at the time below. Add a third with some tie wraps if the mood strikes me....

I also have a Flagpole Buddy. I wish I got mine for $20 as Myrons31 did.

I use a sunsetter telescoping. Originally it had a park on base but that died so now I use a ground stake I( made up and a attachment point just about the first latch to the motor home.
