Flag Mount

What is the best way, and where should I install a flag mount on my 2008 Dutchmen Four Winds 5th Wheel? I want to make sure I don't wind up tearing up the outside of my trailer by putting it in the wrong place. I enjoy flying the American flag when I camp.

I simply attach mine to the ladder at the rear of the trailer. I've seen others mount a PVC pipe to slide the flag pole into on the ladder as well.

I don't have a ladder on my trailer, but I guess I could mount a PVC pipe to the bumper to use as a flag mount. But, I really wanted it on the front of the trailer.

An adjustable mount right on top of the king pin works for me...




And I also fly a couple of windsocks off of the back patio when I have it deployed...

ATCguy, that kingpin mount is an awesome idea! Any chance you could shoot a really close up picture so I can duplicate one for myself? Thanks in advance if you could.

Well, I can if you really need it... but it's just an adjustable flag pole mount that I drilled 4 holes in the top of the king pin, and screwed it in. You can buy the mount most anywhere in either white, black, or gunmetal grey.
