Russ, I am going to call the local True Value and check to see if they have them in stock.

See you soon,
Al

Al and Russ,

If you can't find the poles in your area, Sandlapper will likely get you some and bring to Canopener if you ask. I bought mine from him.

There are a number of places who sell quality flags and poles online.

https://www.polesandholders.com/prod...5&cat=1&page=1

Nice 16 or 20 foot pole with locking pins and swivel rings for multiple flags. They have LED light kits, holders and other fun stuff.

Flag pole options for a Threefer?

Kathy's Quilt's, thank you for your service and thanks to all the brave men and women who we honor with our flags. And thank you for the information regarding illuminating "Ole Glory" after dark. Most likely anyone who takes responsibility to fly our flag while traveling is also interested in knowing the proper protocol.

I'd like to offer two very simple suggestions for lighting and flying the flag...
1- we secure an angled LED, angled up towards the flag and away from our windows, to the lid of the propane tank cover. A strip of double sided Velcro has held nicely.
2- we cut about 2" from the bottom of 2 of our 3 flagpoles so that Old Glory always flies at a height above the other two.

There are few pleasures in life as remarkable as waking up at a gorgeous camping location and stepping outside to gaze upon Old Glory flying proud at daybreak!

Stay proud & pledge allegiance 🇺🇸

I can't claim expertise in anything... at all... but I can say from experience that all things considered the MrLongArm poles can't be beat for cost, ease of use, durability, portability, availability, and aesthetics. They are worth the search.

And I don't work for them or make money from them. I just like them.

AND they are manufactured right here in the good 'ole USA....in Missouri.

And the light.... heck yes...illuminate the flag by all means.

This is my way, a low voltage light (12v) from Lowes, the kind you would use in your yard. When used in your yard it requires a transformer to step the voltage down to 12v. Not necessary on the trailer, everything is already 12v. I tapped into the jack light for mine.

There are many types available, including LED.

For those who may be interested in an alternative to the painter's poles, a source for spinning flag poles is United States Flags, American Flags, State Flags, International flags, Country and Sport Teams Flags, Flags Unlimited or Amazon. We have 5 of the 6' white jobs, and they have held up very well for over 6 years. We bought our poles from a dealer in Boise ID, but these look exactly like ours. We also use an Annin Flagmaker 2804 Solar LED light on the center pole. It uses rechargeable AA batteries and does a great job of illuminating the American Flag at night. We sourced it on Amazon.

PVC is cheap and easy. You can make a sectional pole with a PVC coupler. Spray paint it aluminum.

PVC is a little too flexible.

This is report back on the 1" flag poles that I bought. I bought the Mr. LongArm Model 9272 poles that Sandlapper likes at DrillSpot.com. I don't have a TrueValue Hardware store within 80 miles of where I live so I looked around on the internet. Although DrillSpot.com had high shipping costs, the poles were much cheaper than TrueValue and no sales tax was charged. The overall cost difference wasn't much.

I plan on flying flags at the upcoming Canopener rally!

Didn't think of landscape lights, (of which I have lots) so that's next for me!

have a new 27 fb with the new monstrous motor hanging in front, hence the beautiful sandlapper piece of art doesn't work for me .... cannot extent it further to the front either as my tailgate wouldn't clear it also..

hence I made a pvc pipe covered with a high quality carbon fibre look decal next to the tube. only one flag for me, but its the all important one. Being American by choice I am proud to fly old Glory.
Waiting on a solar flagpole light to finish the project
:-)
