We have a flag pole buddy that has mounts attached to the rear ladder for our displays. Love it!

what you have!!

Flag Pole Buddy with solar light for nighttime display of flag, just great!

That same PVC flag holder and with a solar light since it stays up 24/7. Plus a small Uncle Sam figure holding a small stick flag.

Same as Mtncrash1, but experimenting with something on the pin box.

Flagpole Buddy 2.0

Became totally disenchanted with the idea after seeing a nice shiny new class A get all beat up by one of those poles attached to the rear ladder during a bit of wind in ABQ several years back. At least the pole didn't fly off and get another coach/trailer/whatever in the CG, but it sure made a mess of that Allegra bus!

I fabricated a bracket for the top of my ladder, and I also have a solar light on top of the pole to keep it iluminated at night.
As was stated above, I'm not set up until the flag is up!

Okay I have never seen one flown like that before

I have seen a 5er get beat to the devil by the pole in coastal FL. Maybe a shorter pole would not have beat it quite so bad???

I gave up after I had a pole break in strong winds at a NASCAR race. Top half of the pole landed in a group of youngsters who were partying in their site behind ours. Damn near started a riot.

JeffBA I cannot figure out why my photos always post like that.... Great comment though!! Lol

Mostly for when we travel I made up a pole from some spare 1" aluminum tubing and an adjustable bracket from ebay which mounts on the ladder. This replaces a couple we had stuck in the ground on a stick. I'll be using a fairly small flag for the reasons others have noted. It isn't the size of the flag but our need to support my country. I also have a bracket that mounts on the summer site's power pedestal which has been used for about as long as we have spent much of our summers there.

Flag Pole Buddy & Solar Lite. To help with the wind concern I don't always fully extend it if the weather is going to be rough and I have a bungee further up the ladder from the mount to help hold the pole in place

Biigdadday defies gravity. LOL

We use the flag pole buddy but during extreme winds we will bring it down.
