Kev, If your gonna get in the pool you gotta go to the deep end.

If I got a flag holder I'd have to put on my red numbers and wear my beret.

Craftsman, Yes I'm paying homage to one of my fav movies. Maybe the spaceship led me to Airstreams...


BTW Can you open the rock aurd ith the flags in place?

Who needs rules!!

I fly 5 flags too!

I purchased the 5 pole holder and 5 retractable poles from POLE-Ease to the tune of about $200 (this included shipping). I'm very pleased with the set up.

We fly the US flag, the Texas flag, US Navy flag, Jolly Roger Flag and rotate the last between Dale Earnhardt Junior, Nebraska Cornhuskers or Airstream. This all depends upon which sporting event we are at.

Of course when I'm at a WBCCI function I put up 2 or 3. Kinda silly huh?

I purchased a 5 flag unit and 3 poles from Pole-Ease. I had looked at cranking up the welding machine and fabricating the holder and looked into all the suggestions for alternative poles. In the end it was easier and cheaper to use Pole-Ease. The flag poles are very nicely designed and easy to stow.

Jim - The poles are 12 feet long, where do you store them?

They slide into themselves, 3 sections if I remember correctly. I stow them behind the front gaucho. Very nice.

Does the rock guard hit the poles when you open it?
Hi Richard,

The poles are from Home Depot paint section.....2 pc aluminum (of course) and IIRC are extendable from 6'-11'.

The pole holder mounts on the front of the tongue jack, so the front window does not hit it.

Got mine from Pole Ease. Great product and Great service. The extendable poles are very strong. Biggest task was finding polished stainless steel muffler clamps for mounting. Also purchased the flag pole storage box, on sale, from Airstream and mounted just in front of the entry door. This storage box also doubles as a nice fishing pole storage.

Just received my 5 flag holder made by Rob Baker of Robandzoe. If I were to rate it on a scale of 1-10 for build quality , it's a 12 or 15. Extremely well built and in my opinion under priced. Rob if you read this, raise your price. What a bargain. Seldom do you get more than what you pay for, but I truly am impressed.

Rob does a great job on these, and I totally agree with craftsman......they are way overbuilt and waaaaaayyyyy under-priced.

Thanks for such a great item Rob!!!!!
