Flag pole

We love flying flags. Taller the better. This is my last, bumper mounted. Any Voltage flying flags, and where and how are you securing them. Pics would be great.

Headed to MIS in two weeks - will post mine. Used to have ladder mount on last rig, but it stressed the ladder - made pound in the ground type now.

Installed this flag pole yesterday...
Ramp mount about 8 ft up + 22 ft pole = 30ft high.

I need to mount some type of bump stop on the pole or trailer,
with the wind it was deforming the drip spout.

I think I'm going to hole saw the center out of a soft football,
Texas Tech of course, to slip over the pole below the drip spout?

I got the setup from Camping World that attaches to my ladder. Works great.

This mod is on my "to-do" list. Have an aluminum sectioned pole that came with a flag. Was thinkng of using 2 shorter poles from the 5 sections.

That is my real question, how to mount them securily, and easily put up & down, without defacing trailer any more than I have to.

I'll follow this thread to see what ideas ya'll come up with.

I thought about mounting a flag pole... but think I'll just stick with my windsocks for awhile.

Absolutely love them flags, I have a 20ft telescoping aluminum pole and I fly my flags when we take the trailer. We have a mount in the front on the tongue and one on the back.

The Nerf ball cut out with a hole saw did the trick,
it keeps the pole off the edge and away from the drip spout.

I've flown the skull & cross bones ever since our pirate days,
I may take it down now that the King is back!!!
