We bought the Flag Pole Buddy and love it. Got the 22 foot fiberglass one. I did my mount a bit different; since it can be mounted to a flat surface as well, I mounted ours mid point on the trailer on the metal trim piece on the edge of the super slide. That way, I didn't have to drill any holes into the body of the trailer. Worked great. I checked to make sure when the slide closed there would be no clearance problems, and there weren't. Reason I put it mid point is that most of the parks we camp in, the ladder is in the back of the space, sometimes under a tree, so the pole wouldn't have worked there. Mounting it mid point on the trailer makes it viewable from most any position. I proudly fly the American flag, along with the Vietnam Veterans flag I have to go with it.
