Portable / collapsable flag pole?

Looking for a way to fly the U.S. Flag and a Navy flag from my FR3 motor home.
Pole would need to be collapsable while on the road and hopefully easy to set up while in each campground. (Retired, full timer)
Some of the places I have camped have had winds up to 50 mph, so would need to be fairly sturdy.

Anyone have any working ideas : products?

We bought one of these at a Rally a couple of years ago - works great and stows away to nothing!

I bought this from Harbor Freight and built a stand that clamps to my electric jack.

We got the 16' one with the Solar LED light. We easily fly 2 3x5' flags: the US Flag in chief and the POW/MIA below (I am a Vietnam Vet)

The flag kit is pricey but I can't complain about the quality!

Thanks for the link.
Did not see any that thrill me in that, but will keep looking for ideas.
There was one called a flag pole buddy that some how worked with a ladder, though did not see much on it. Will double check camping world.
