What's it?

What is this thing? It was in my Airstream trailer when I bought it, looks like it should do something but don't know what. I've moved it around all summer, I'm thinking I'll move it to the scrap pile next.

Poor Man's Flag Pole

It's some previous owner's flagpole.The clue is remnant of the halyard.
You see all sorts variations on the same theme.
I use painter's extension poles from Lowes.

That is a flag pole for front of your AS.

There are two hooks and one of them is attached to a spring. You slide the other one up/down to adjust tension on spine of flag.

...or maybe a pole to fend off UFO's flying to close to the Airstream? Cliff may have it right.

If anyone needs the Alien club/flagpole they are more than welcome to have it. I will stick with my tried and true claw hammer, I know the little bugger's don't like it.
