I made us a sign post of of PVC that I purchased at my friendly Lowes' Store. Total cost was under $30.00. I had seen some at different campgrounds with electrical cords to the light. I just purchased a small solar light, cut off the base about six inches. It inserts in the top of the sign, easily removed and stored. I used a comode mounting flange as the base of it, drilled four holes so I can use tent stakes to fasten it down. I also made a base out of a 2 x 8 that I can put under the tongue if we want to use it at the front of the trailer.

We had one like this when I was a kid, so I kept the tradition going.

Gatlinburg Sign Co. Any state in the Union. Get you a solar yard sign at Wally or Lowe's--the one that pivots and aim it at your sign. Will get a pic of mine this weekend and ATTEMPT to post it. Steve

In TX we pounded the tent stakes into the ground and when we got ready to leave there was NO way those stakes were coming out of the ground (large ones with the green plastic tops).! We had to break the 4 inch PVC out of the flange and leave it there! I mean there was NO way...we used various sized hammers, claw hammer, rubber hammer...those stakes were NOT coming out and we couldn't even tear off those green plastic tops to enable the rotation to be able to lift it out of the slots. *Hated* leaving it there as we always leave a "clean space"..nothing left behind.

New flange bottom now... using the smaller heavy wire type tent stakes...flange has slots so if we can't get the stakes out of the ground we can rotate the base and lift it out of the stakes.

Oh, btw, ours is black. Painted the PVC to match the metal lantern on top.

Lesson learned!
...got pics here somewhere on my phone...need to post up one or two I guess.

Our lamp is electric...wish I could find a solar powered one.
I use the candle flicker type bulbs. Looks neat at night.

Similar to a sign already posted. I bought mine at an art show many years ago. It's hooked a garden ornament that I found on clearance. Sadly, it's near the dog prison.
