Here's a popular PVC one doesn't mount to your TT but it's worth a look. Just pound a piece of rebar in the ground and it'll rotate with the wind.
I suppose with a few adaptations you could mount it to your TT.

Lots of these available. Just pick one you like, but be careful when you use it. We had a cat at a NASCAR race a while ago who put his pole up under a high voltage line. The pole didn't come in contact with the wires, just somewhat close. Result: One crispy critter and a few others badly burned. I knew the EMT's who responded. Not at all nice. Just be careful.

I use a couple of those long telescoping fiberglass poles.

Clicky

I attached a footlong piece of pvc pipe to the side of the tongue jack. The pole slides right in. To stop any rattling, a piece of that insulation that you put on your pipes works well.

A quick google search found this I don't know if you could find a way to make that work or use it as a template. We have one of the telescoping one's on the ladder now.

I went to Harbor Freight and bought their telescoping flagpole.
then somebody told me the joints have a tendency to slip.
No big deal, if it does I'll drill holes and put pins in it to hold it!
I intend to use it for both flags or amateur radio antennas!

made the following out of a 2' piece of PT decking, a couple of pieces of 2" flat stock for stiffness and a 2" pipe floor flange. I then can screw in a 24" piece of pipe into it and insert my homemade flag pole which is just one of the expanding pool cleaning extending poles. I have a hole in the pipe and thru the flag pole where a thumb screw and wingnut go to hold the two together. Been using this for arounf 14 years.

This is what I made. Looks great, easy to make, and easy to transport.
