That is a great idea. Does the ball mount piece adjust for leveling heights?

Great ideas. I also like the pics. This is something I really want to add to my camper. Thanks for the ideas.

It looks like loosening the two muffler clamps will allow the sleeve/ball to be adjusted for different leveling heights.

As requested, here are a couple of pictures on how I mount my flags. It' isn't always perfect, but It works most of the time.

Just some more food for thought, there is a United States Flag Code. I believe in properly respecting the flag of our great nation, and I wonder if anyone else knows all of the regulations for properly flying one...

Example: is it properly lit if flown at night?

when I put out the flag I use to bungee cord the flag pole to ladder on the back of the camper. I remember seeing lots of flags at campgrounds now I see very few I wonder why?

I don't know.

Remember politics are "Verboten" on this site.
So I will try to answer without stepping on the rules.


I think somehow patriotism has been politicized to some extent.
I choose to display our flag because so much of my adult life has been spent defending it. I refuse to allow patriotism to die and feel it is not demeaning in any way to show how proud I am of what America has accomplished by flying our colors.

Remember it is the symbol of the American people and not one party or another. No matter what flavor you are; you should not be afraid to show the colors for fear of being politically branded one or the other.

I bought a flag at Camping World that included mounts for awning or ladder. I mount mine on the ladder. Bought a solar spotlight and mounted it to a clamp. I clamp the light to a step on the ladder and point it up at the flag. Looks great at night. The flag came in a nice plastic storage bag. I store it in the rear bumper.
