I want to Thank all of you that have posted a response. You all have come up with some really clever ideas. I like the pics that Turbs had posted and I like the way it has attached to the ladder, looks really secure and can take on some pretty serious winds. My DW and I can't wait to get on the road... 29 days and counting to retirement !!!

I use stainless fishing rod holders from Walmart secured around the ladder rails with the secured bolts. $39 if I remember correctly. Then just use the regular flag pole and just sit it down in the holder.
