Flag poles and holder for tongue jack

Hi,

I'm looking for the typical size flag poles that I see on other Airstreams at rallys. I would also like to find the three pole holder that is often mounted on the tongue jack.

Okay folks, after looking around for a couple hours on the web and e-bay I still haven't found a source to buy them from.

Is this a Make Your Own type set-up?

ALK

Hi ALK!

Pole-Eze makes both 3 and 5 pole flag holders.
They advertise in the WBCCI magazine.

Hope this info helps on your quest!

Check with FORUMS member ROBANDZOE - he has them made in various configurations, 3 - 4 or 5 flag pole mounts. Very well made - I have one. Uses aluminum paint roller poles from home supply stores for the flag poles - they collapse into themselves for easy storage.

You unbolted your jack and turned it to allow for the installation...?

We got ours from Pole Ease too. Had to make a few modifications to clear the Power Jack and have the American flag taller than the other two. I can give details if you need them (and give all the credit to my DH).

Here is Tex on our trip two weekends ago at Pokagon State Park in Indiana.

I second the recommendation- Rob Baker is an avid Airstream enthusiast and makes a terrific aluminum flag holder. I have one of his 3 pole holders and it's built like a Mack truck. I had the guys at the Airstream dealership swivel the head of my electric jack for me since Im not mechanically inclined, it was no big deal. Not sure if he's still making them, but if he is, you can't go wrong.

No. But I did have to use a spacer to get enough space to clear the jack head.

the classics have a different jack model with the guts to the side already...

facing forward is a TINY light (it's visible in the photoz)...

so the holder needs to be angled OR a spacer used to clear the 1.5 inches of light fixture.

cheers

We did use spacers. No turning of our power jack.

Many electric jacks have set screws at the base of the motor which may be loosened, and the motor assembly turned to face any way you choose.
