RV Flag Pole

i just retired -- yeah -- and got a RV Flag pole as a retirement gift. i must say, one of the coolest mods we have done yet to the coach. easy to install -- good past 30mph winds. and very easy and quick to take up and down. recommended indeed!

Flags look like there's a fight inside camper on Saturdays.

Flagpole metal or fiberglass????

i am a bama grad ... go figure. the "G" is for my dad in law, a shout out to him. he did let me marry his daughter.

the pole is fiberglass -- with give" in high winds. flies high - expandable pole. friction on the top and pins on the bottom ("bigger" part).

very sturdy mounts and very impressed with craftsmanship and quality.

roll tide!

My flag pole is fiberglass, from polesandholders.com There was someone killed in Talladega several years ago with a metal pole, that's when NASCAR said no more metal poles

We generally fly the US and MIA flags from our 16' Flagpole Buddy, although we carry a Retired AF flag as well as Pittsburgh Steelers/Denver Bronco Flags. We might have to get one of those freestanding pvc poles for the front of the MH for game days.

The pole looks great (not so sure about the flags ). Do you mind sharing the brand name and model?

Sure. It's from flag pole buddy.. just found it on line. It's not the cheapest. But it sure is a quality pole. There is a video review on that website. After flying it for the last week I echo that review in its entirety. Quality product. Very easy to deploy stow. Zero noise or vibration. And looks great. Could not be happier!!

Looks like mine is the 1.5 model. With a 16 foot pole. There is a 2.0 model with a 22 ft pole. Mine also came with a nice American flag.

Guy with the video review mentioned he had a HF pole. And lasted less than year. This one is first class all the way! And mine mounts to the RV ladder. I could be at NASCAR race and would fit in well! Best of luck all! Show your pride!!

Got ours from polesandholders.com 22' and mounted 6' up the ladder. Top is 28' above the ground. Topped with a solar light, below it the Stars and Stripes and below that is one that reads NRA.
