Flag pole mount

I was wondering how y'all are mounting a flag pole mount to your camper? Do you just use the same one that you would use for a house, but that would require you too put screws into the walls.

I was going to try and rig up a piece of PVC pipe to my ladder to hold a full size flag, then someone posted this: Flag Holder - Intersource Enterprises D16-169 - Flags & Accessories - Camping World So I thought what the hey, it's cheap enough. I ordered it and when it arrived right away I was unhappy how it held the flags to vertical. Plus, after the first time using it the suction cups would no longer hold it on the glass. I ended up turning it over and mounting it to a piece of metal and attached it to the ladder. It's better, still not 100% happy. I might end up buying the full flag mount from camping world before it's over.

I used a fiberglass painters pole that extends 18' and attached it to my ladder with pipe clamps, I added a pully and rope so that I could raise and lower the flag.
I posted this here on the Forum and i will go back and see if I can find it.

Lou's looks great - with permission, I am going to steal/copy it. Good to see it on the front of the TT as I always back into a spot and people will see it as they walk/drive by.

No worries as I stole it from someone else.

I use the lower part of the flag bracket to hold a solar lawn light to provide illumination of Old Glory after dark and in inclement weather.
It still comes down during storms of course.

Flag Holder

I place my flag in the arms of the Awning.

"old Glory" is flying higher of course.
