I just wanted to say that I am thrilled about my new 16' flagpole and USA flag from Poles and Holders. This flagpole is fiberglass, and is much stronger than others I have seen. I bought the Pole Buddy mount for the rear ladder and the pole is easy to install from the ground.

I had originally purchased the 22' pole, but when I got it, it appeared too long, and Poles and Holders sent out the 16' one (two flag capability) with the 1 1/2" Pole Buddy mount and sent a CALL TAG for the FREE return of the 22' pole and 2" pole buddy mount.

You can't ask for better service than that!

THanks for the many positive posts on Poles and Holders from this website, as those helped me with my decision.

Good choice. Considering you're already at 8,600' a 16'er is plenty.

I agree. I bought my pole and holder kit several years ago, from this company. I've had to replace the flag, but the pole and holder are still perfect.

After a search, reviving an old thread....

Regarding the ladder mount from Poles & Holders (or any ladder mount) Does it transfer any noise inside of the coach? The bedroom is in the rear of my coach, and was wondering if you can hear the flagpole/holder creak or clank.

Thanks in advance for your input.

MuckSavage, I have had 2 different types of pole holders. A hitch mounted unit and now a ladder mounted one.

Both will allow the flapping sound from the flag(s) to translate into the inside of the coach especially noticeable at night. Just lower the flags and you can quiet it down until the morning.

RVUpgrades.com has quite a few ladder mounted flag poles available. They donated about 4 of these for an iRV2 function at a rally I was attending this past summer. A class outfit, they deserve an atta boy and give them a call.

RVUpgrades is an iRV2.com sponsor.

Hi MuckSavage,
The only noise is when the pole hits the ladder. This happens when the wind is strong enough to bend the pole. The pole will kind of "bounce" off the ladder and make a noise. After several years of use, my pole remains in perfect condition.

Glad I stumbled onto this thread. I just ordered the 22 ft pole for home.

I have the Poles & Holders 22' pole and ladder mount; I painted the mount black to match the ladder.

The mount is attached to the 5th step of the ladder which makes putting up the pole a bit easier. I used a bungee cord to secure the pole to the ladder near the top which keeps the pole from hitting and/or scraping against the ladder when it gets windy. I put up the American flag and a wind spinner and you can definitely hear them when the wind gets going but I don't find the sound objectionable at all.

If the temperature drops off at night the pole can collapse when it contracts so I take care to twist it securely when extending.

See also www.flagpolebuddy.com

They have a number of options. I have the 16 foot tall version and it works well. I think RV upgrades also sells these versions as well.
