I jxst ordered 2-4’ sections along with the ladder mount to mount my weather station. What I ordered is a 2” diameter.

When I ordered online their shipping cost was outrageous but they said there was a glitch on their ordering system. They are real,responsive.

Take a look…

Yes, flagpolebuddy is the answer. I have one and am very pleased with it. Just be careful to not fly the flag in high (25+) winds. I did break my first pole but that was on me. Two flags, 25mph winds, boom. My bad

Not a good idea for pole on trailer or near camp if "Lightning is present" This is a real event. I reside east of Amarillo tx. Big lightning one afternoon. My neighbor had 2 flag poles in his front yard. " steel" lightning hit 1 of them, previous owner put them there. under 1 of them was the house wire from the electric pole in front yard. lightning hit pole , contacted cable , went up to meter, up to transformer ,in street, down to my meter, " 2 houses on 1 pole " burnt up my g- door opener, my cable tv box. At his house it destroyed everything pluged in . A.C. unit cable ,toaster coffee pot. etc. the power of lightning is dangerous. where the power cables ran underground blew the groung up in the air ,it looked like a Mole burried under the surface. it went up the side of his house where the old satellite dish used to be. almost caught on fire. it arched to any pipe ,cable in yard. insurance covered his ,not mine. Excel energy told me to take my flag pole off of my porch and put it far away from house. its your life at hand , i dont recomend flag pole on rvs "EVER"

I usually order from Amazon but I did not need a 16’ pole nor a flag. But if your ordering a flag setup it is definitely the way to go.

I order 2 of their 4’ poles which I don’t see on Amazon.

Mine is fiberglass so little to no worry about lightening strike.

Maybe you shouldn’t drive..lol

Kidding aside, I guess you could look at it like a lightening rod. Mine is aluminum, very good conductor, but only sticks up about a foot higher than my ac unit. I use mine for a weather station. Kind of ironic, weather station and lightening.

Living in the lightening capital of the world (Florida) I’ve had my close encounters with lightening. If not a flag pole a tree or something else.

Great find! I just installed mine on my rv ladder. Easy install and mounting the pole to the mount is easy-peasy. Can do it standing flat on the ground.

I’m raising a weather station but can’t imagine raising a 16’ flag with wind blowing without resting in the flag pole buddy mount.

Let us know how it works for you. I will post some pics once we get to our destination of how easy it goes up and works for me..

America is divided. People are pissed off. Flying flags just makes it worse. The best flag pole is no flag pole.
