I never was sold on the PVC
Until I can get OC to make me poles, I bought telescopic pool skimmer poles.
Other than being blue (I'll paint them brown)
They are pre drilled for the top bolt and the "handle" is the end that plants on the ground
They have the friction style lock and 3 piece for added strength
They look like they were an factory option (other than the pain not matching)
I'm still hoping OC gets some pole stock in FLA,but haven't heard.
I never saw a Hearse towing a Trailer
