My MH is 32 and I'm sure the fiberglass is not as strong as it was when new on the rear cap where the ladder attaches. I was hoping to get the one that u drive onto a pad. I'd like too know that if they are bending up to 3 foot I don't want it bouncing off the side of the MH either.
Did anyone have that type?
The closest MH store is around 80 miles R/T or I would drive and look there.
Thanks,
Tim

Spritz,

Check out www.flagsandemblems.com they have all kinds of stuff. Its owned and operated by a 100% Disabled Vet. He does a lot of sales to the military. They have a pretty good website. I know I've seen the mounts that you put under the tire. Not sure if its on his web page ot not.

A pair of yellow solid plastic wheel chocks. The black hollow plastic wheel chocks got squished when I forgot to pull chocks! Have to rethink my iRV2 name...

For the drive on flagpole holder, just look on amazon.com or .ca. They have different ones on there.

We have the style that goes under the tire. It works great, except our awning comes back to just at the tire, and we have to put the device at an angle to avoid it hitting the awning. On some uneven ground that can be a pain.
We have discussed getting one for the ladder, but also worry that it could do some damage.

I must be the lucky one who puts everything on the ladder for 10's of thousands of miles, and my ladders have never lete down. I did however lose one of those ladder racks the fit over one of the ladder wrungs. I had the chairs hanging off it as usual,with a couple of bungee cords to hold them together
Hit a bump I guess ans lost tje rack, but the chairs were srill there. Go figure. Im 250 lbs and I still climb my ladder.

I use 5 bungee cords to secure my 5 foot ladder to the ladder. I also have a chain w/lock so if the bungees let go the chain will hold it from even hitting the ground.
I hope I'm not the only one that does this.

I was going to use them but I have had a few that broke, used for a different need though.
I do use them to secure my Flag to the ladder while at a CG. It's just a small 4 foot pole w/a 3x5 Flag.
I also use them to secure the big awning from opening going down the HWY. I use 2 per arm.
Happy Travel's,
Tim

Cheap heat. Look it up on the net. Hubby added it so we don't have to use propane for heat. Works great but now we are ready to buy a new 5er and it was so much work he may not try it again. But it's nice. He had a switch all you had to do is pick propane or electric and it worked off the remote for our heater.
