Finally some pics....

of the holder with the light. I tried several lights, including solar, finally settled on a low voltage (12v) fron Lowes. There are tons of styles to choose from.

Powered it from the 12v already on the jack post, using a automotive type plug. A switch could also be used. I just plug in in at nite, unplug in the am.

A few more pics

The "painter's pole" by MrLongArm. US made, aluminum, smooth skin. Part #9272. My favorite. Sold thru Home Depot, Menards, TruValue Hardware, some independent hardware stores. About 14 bucks. I like the nylon plug in the end

Lowes pole is their own Blue Hawk brand, #06034. A good pole, Chinese, fluted skin. Also about 14 bucks. You will need to knock the handle off the end.

Both collapse to 6', extend to 12'.

The hitch pin clip. Use one big enough to get the flag on the loop end, not so big it looks funny. For travel, I pull the bottom one off (with flag still attached) collapse the pole to 6', roll the flag around the pole. Goes in the back of the truck.

Works for me.

Sandlapper,
Nice holder if I must say-I purchased a preowned Airstream that must have one of your flag holders. I like the clamps (which attach the holder to the jack post) shown on this posting. May I inquire as to where you purchased them?
Thanks,
Curt

Curt, I make them as part of the holder. They are cut with a water jet from solid 1/2'' thick aluminum, then drilled and tapped. If you have one of my holders on your new trailer it should already have them on it. If it doesnt have them either someone "robbed" them or it is someone elses holder. There have been several makers over the years.The brackets are the best part of my holder. They make an easy, clean, niffty mount and provide clearance for the light, jack head and coupler latch.

Thanks................John
