Flag Pole Fabrication?

With our ROO I was able to put a flag pole mount on the awning leg because we disconnected the leg from the trl and placed it vertically. With the 2604 it has a power awning, no way to hook a pole mount to it. I don't want to fasten a pole mount to the side of the trl directly. Was thinking of fabricating a pole that the base would set under the hitch landing leg, and then hook into the ball hitch, to stabilize it with about a 10-15' pole. Anyone out there fab up something similar?

I have my flag mounted to a piece of electrical conduit. I screw on another piece of conduit for an extension at the campsite, and the flag is ready to fly. The mount also doubles for the pole on a hitching mirrow.

Wade (Rocwood06) has a really nice flagpole mounted on the back of his trailer using an extension pole. Telescopic Flagpole On Back Of Camper

We did something very similar to Rockwood06. We used PVC lengths for the pole and set it on the rear TT bumper, then secure the 'pole' to the TT ladder on the back with a couple of bungee cords. The PVC lengths are held together with PVC couplers so they can be easily put together / taken apart for the best height and to store. The flag flies above the TT. Will try and get a picture next time we're out.

I use a push up pole attached to the side of the rear ladder with heavy duty wire ties. Works great for the flags and my wire antenna for ham radio.

I like that. No holes need to be drilled.
Looks to be easy to put up and take down.
