Flag Poles

I have been attempting to contact the person selling flag poles and flag pole holders. I have called the phone number but no one answers and have sent a message to the e-mail address. No contact. Does anyone have any updated information where I could purchase some poles.

I bought a flag holder from poleease some time back and I send you a PM with the last good email and phone I have for the company.

I did not buy poles from them, I made them from 12' painters poles which I bought at Loews. I added a little hardware to them to hold the flags and they work very well. I did have to make the holes in the holder slightly larger for the poles to fit.

I also used painter poles from Lowes...Home Depot has them too. I made my holder from hardware available from any hardware store for WAY less than the fabricated ones. Here are photos of my set up. I carry the poles in 4" PVC anchored to the coach bottom.

I used eye bolts (2) and wing nuts on each pole and then clip the flags on to them. I remove the lower eye bolt when stored so they collapse smaller.

Another Flag Pole Option

I like the do it yourself pole plans already stated. Here is a link to collapsible pole available with Internet access and a credit card. Scroll down to Collapsible Flagpoles To Go. Warning, they are not cheap, but they are really nice, and very easy to store.

The paint roller extensions are very economical and easy to find at Lowe's. I left the handles on mine and secured the top of the flags with a nylon zip tie on the handle and another down low at the other flag grommet.

The poles have withstood strong winds and the ties have not slipped. I got the holder from Rob (RobandZoe).

Thanks. Been frustrated that I couldn't get in touch with Pole Ease. They must be out of business. Just ordered from Flag Brackets, Flag Poles, Flagpoles, Flag Hardware & Accessories.
I'd like a light to shine from the bottom to highlight the flag at night. I've seen some pretty tacky concoctions, however I'd like something neater. I did see on another Airstream a light that had been mounted on a magnate that was attached to the Hensley that had a small positive and negative connection which I think could be used in the Airstream light connection when it unhooked. I'd appreciate any ideas like the flag pole suggestion from ts8501.

Look here to get an idea. They are too pricey but will give you a place to start from.

what you could do for a light is get a 12v landscape light fixture..if you can find one, get one that mounts w/ a threaded pipe...that pipe matches the threads of a standard outdoor light box.
you could use one that mounts w/ a spike, meant to stick in the ground. that'll work at some campsites...if you're camped on cement/pavement, not so much. But you could probably rig a base that would just sit on the ground.
Then get a female trailer (7-way) plug, clip the connectors of the landscape light, and wire it into the trailer plug. (put a fuse inline!!). Then you can just plug it in to the trailer's umbilical when you want to use it. adding a switch is optional.

I mounted an outdoor electrical box, and put a switch on the side of the box. That works with my arrangement. What I found when researching this, myself, is that nearly every trailer-tongue is unique, in terms of wire accessibility, jack presence/location, tanks, flagholder, etc...what you see on someone else's trailer may not work on yours, so you have to be prepared to be creative.

This may be late, but go contact robandzoe at this link http://www.airforums.com/forums/f4/f...tml#post849463

PoleEase no longer makes them but Rob does. They look rugged and I just ordered one. Mine should be here next week. He has two sizes-- 3 or 5 pole holes that I know of. They look great.

Thanks. Bought my flag holdder already from Rob, then my flag pole today from the Flags from American Flags per this thread. Now I'm looking for a light to light it up at now. Will check out the solar suggested in an earlier post.

Great thanks! Pricey but worth it I think.

I ordered the flagpole over a week ago. I have received an email that they are on back order. Did you have any problem receiving yours?
