Talking I Want a 5 Pole Flag Holder/Bracket

Now that the WBCCI is allowing regular members to display 5 flags on their rigs I'm in the market for a 5 pole flag holder/bracket for the front of my trailer's hitch. I've already checked out Pole Ease, they only offer 1 and 3 pole holders/brackets. Does anyone know where I can purchase a 5 pole holder/bracket? Or has anyone built one and is willing to share the directions?

Whoa! What exactly do you mean they're "allowing"? You couldn't before?

That's right. Only International Officers could fly 5 flags at WBCCI events. The rules have been changed and all members can fly up to 5 WBCCI "approved" flags on their rigs. Of course if you are not attending a WBCCI event you can fly whatever flags and as many flags as you want.

At WBCCI events I want to fly:

The national flag of the United States of America
New Hampshire State flag
WBCCI Unit Office flag - yep, I'm one of them
Airstream flag - got it from the Airstream online store
Drinking flag - you know, the one with a cocktail glass on it (not sure this is an "approved" flag )

When I'm not attending WBCCI events I want to fly:

The national flag of the United States of America
New Hampshire State flag
Drinking flag
Jolly Roger "prepare to be boarded" flag
Nascar flag

Maybe you could use 2 of the 3 pole mounts...then you could be a 6 flagger... But don't let the Bylaw police catch you....

I love the non-WBCCI selection. Especially the Jolly Roger flag, since I'm an old 'Navy' man. I'll be following this thread, since I need to get a pole holder myself.

No, I don't. In fact I have not seen a 5 pole bracket on a Airstream trailer, just on the Airstream Motorhomes and the design of those won't work on our hitches.

Anyone out there with a 5 pole bracket on their trailer? If so could you please post pictures and provide measurements?

Balgrn, we wish we could have attended the last rally of the season. Just had made plans to be in Maine that weekend before the rally was scheduled.

Leon: With the change in the WBCCI Bylaws, there might be a decent enough market for 5 pole brackets that Pole Ease might consider making them. Did you mention to him the recent Bylaw change is the reason you are now in the market for a 5 pole bracket? You might contact him again and push a little harder. I really like his 3 pole bracket I bought last year.

yes and no, this is my buddy's trailer.

here is a picture of the 5 place holder he got from pole ease. he argued with them until they sent it.

unfortunately, he has only 3 flag poles and has a habit of borrowing 2 of mine on occasion.

Flag pole holder photo

John et al -

How nice that I just found this thread. Been looking into a flag holder but have been a little hesitant to go with the 3 flag set up. Do you have, could you post a closer shot of the 5 flag holder that your buddy has?? Thanks!

Also, the poles, were they also from that vendor or did you go with something local from HD/ Lowes/ etc...?

Thanks again!

Axel

Future photo list...?

John-

Thanks for looking! Appreciate it loads! Perhaps the next time you see that rig...?

BTW - does anyone have a photo of that 'flag box" 2air was talking about? Sounds interesting for lots of things... Just curious.

Ciao

Axel
