American Flag

I like to fly the American Flag at home during good weather and would like to also do that when camping. Has anyone come up with a simple way to attach a small flag somewhere on the curb-side close to the door but not so close that it's a nuisance when opening/closing the door or when entering/exiting -- maybe some kind of clip-on flag? Also, does anyone know where to purchase such a flag?

Most use a flag holder attached to the a-frame:

Flag

TRizzutti,
Being a vet, it was mandatory for me to fly a flag. This was probably one of the most frustrating additions I have ever made to my rig. I bought my holder from
Rob, but getting it on the front of the trailer was a tedious task. Most have to turn the hitch motor to the side to get enough clearance. That was not the case for me. Turning my motor did not give me the clearance I needed to mount the holder. I had to modify my mount and attach a lip to the backside for stability. I even had to grind down the u-bolt for the upper mount as it was interfering with the elecrtric hookups feeding the motor. I can send you some detailed photos if you would like, but if you're looking for something simple, you could purchase one of these for under your TV;s wheel:
Amazon.com: Boone Outdoor Under da Tire Flag Pole Stand and Case: Sports & Outdoors
Here is another:
Tailgate Flagpole at College Flags and Banners Co. your Tailgate Flagpole Source

If you want quick & simple, the above is the way to go. Even my semi-permanent flag holder interferes with my ability to fully open the tailgate while attached.
It's a frustrating addition I can tell you that.
It took some time, but when your flags are flying, it's well worth your time.
Sea ya down the road,
Gavin

The under-wheel types seem to be really good and sturdy, especially in high winds from what I've seen.

I've also seen smaller flag holders attached to the awning arms, but I don't know how sturdy and reliable it would be.

Fly the colors with pride!

We have a ProPride hitch. This moves the AS aft enough for tailgate use. The flag holder Rob has, can be mounted on the tongue jack with appropriate mods. You can see how it holds 3 separate flagpole, one vertical the others to each side. Many AS display flags in this manner.

You can purchase one of the suction cup flag holders in the link below and stick it to your window, or even the side of your trailer near your door. It takes the small flags like 12"x18" that are on wood dowels.Amazon.com: Camco 45502 Triple Flag Holder Suction Cup: Automotive

A simple pipe, hose clamped to the tongue jack, is a simple flag pole holder for one flag. Does not get in the way and you can put the flag up or down in seconds.
