Here's more photo's of the Cardinal


Angle irons welded to pin box with stainless bolts threaded in.





Pole holder is 2" X 2" aluminum tube.



Flag poles are 16' collapsible.


I sold the Cardinal and stepped up to a 2013 Cedar Creek 36CKTS.


I will be posting pictures shortly of my 2013 Cedar Creek with up grade to three poles 20' in the middle with the 16's on each side.

I had a 16' aluminum telescoping tailgate flagpole, and I used the "Pound in the ground" mount. Basically a 12" long tube with a spike that goes in the ground. It's almost impossible to get straight, and even when you do, the pole still bends with the wind. Drove me nuts!

This years solution!

Bought a 20' telescoping flag pole from Harbor Freight (It's pretty rigid). At home, the 2.5" pvc sleeve will be buried in the ground in concrete. When we go camping, I purchased a 2.5" PVC pipe 40" long (Had to go to a specialty plumbing store and pay $3.50/ft for it!) and I just painted it gloss black. I also used 2 hole saws (2.5" and 3") to make 3 spacer blocks to go in between my tongue jack and my 40" PVC and I will use 3 12" steel straps to hold the PVC to my tongue jack. The pole holder will now be level when the trailer is level, and I'll be able to just slide my 20' pole right into the PVC! I test fitted it last week and it was awesome....took it apart to paint and have yet to reinstall it. Good thing I have a month and a half until our first trip....

Flags

Pictures of updated flag holder on Cedar Creek.

Now bracket holds three poles.




Went to 4 flags due to being told if I flew the Coast Guard Flag (Son)

I needed to fly the Marine Flag (Grandson) also.

Anymore Grandchildren join the armed forces I Shure hope it's USCG or Marines.

I bought the pole and the mount from Poles and Holders.com website. It is a multiple section telescoping fiberglass mast. It has held up very well. We have had the pole in use since 2005. A gusty thunderstorm at the beach fractured a section before I could get it down last summer. I called the manufacturer and was instructed to send it back. They inserted a new section and now I'm back in business.

FLAGS

WHEN WE GO TO THE NASCAR RACES WE FLY OURS LIKE THIS BUT WITH NASCAR TEAM / TRACK FLAGS AND PIRATE FLAGS.
OF COURSE THE USA AND CANADA FLAGS PLUS THE STATE FLAG AND OUR PROVINCIAL FLAG.

Remember on an RV ladder the wind will twist and crack the ladder with flag poles attached

20 or 21 feet high poles have a lot of torque at the base
