flag pole mounting and flag pole in general

Want to purchase a flagpole that can handle two flags, any recommendations open to good ideas.
Is a collapsible flagpole any good or is it a gimmick?
Is the flagpole mount that sits below the tire any better than the flagpole that mounts to the hitch? Please help.

I bought my three-holer from Sandlapper. It's a nice design, beautifully fabricated.

Search this term on EB: "Airstream 5-Pole Flag Pole Holder" and you'll find a very well made flag pole holder. Excellent fabrication and cost.

Blue Hawk painting poles work great! Six foot - Twelve foot style cost $14 at Lowe's.

What size flags are you guys running? I've been looking at Sandlapper's flag pole mount and it looks like the best quality mount available.

We use the excellent Sandlapper 5-hole flagpole holder. Beautifully constructed and sturdy. We use Lowes painters poles and 3' x 5' flags, lots of them.

Doug K is right 3' X 5' flags are the most properly proportioned to you flag poles and your Airstream.
"Bigger ones are too big.
Smaller ones are too small.
3' X 5' flags are just right."

Lowe's flagpoles and 3x5's here (USA, Virginia, Germany), work beautifully.

Got ours at Camping World 8 years ago. Quality telescoping aluminum. Stand can go under wheel or tongue. This one looks similar, except ours is un-painted aluminum.

Not extended fully in pic.

Use it all the time.

Bob, my tongue jack mounted holder has the advantage of being already in place, all the time. Just drop the poles/flags in and lett'em fly. And if need be, you can make a "parade lap" with the poles in the holder. A grand entrance.

OK, I just bought a Blue Hawk painting pole, 6-12 foot style. Looks like it should work, except I obviously need to make some mods. Do I just cut off the blue plastic base and the blue plastic top? What hardware should I use for mounting flags? The
Valley Forge 1-Inch diameter Rotating Mounting Rings, 2-Piece

on Amazon look like a possibility, any experience with those? Thanks.
