Looking to purchase a 12 to 15 ft high collapsing flag pole. One strong enough to hold a small solar flag illuminating light on top and 1 USA flag.. Which is better? Aluminum or Fiberglass? Recommendations.. Once I get a pole, will make a mount to hold it.

What is the height of your RV? Twelve feet would be two feet above my TT...too short. My fiberglass pole is twenty feet plus mounted to the bumper adds another foot plus. Rarely is any pole taller than mine.


Winnebago 2101DS TT & 2020 Chevy Silverado 1500 LTZ Z71, 300 watts solar-parallel & MPPT, Trojan T-125s. TALL pole for flags. Prefer USFS, COE, BLM, NPS, TVA, USF&WS, state & county camps. Bicyclist! 14 year Army vet - 11B40 then 11A - (MOS 1542 & 1560)

One of the best on the market for flag poles and mounts is Poles and Holders they are a family owned company.

They have been in business for more than 20 years making all their mounts in house, and have great customer service, fast shipping, and a very good warranty, if there is any problems just bring it by or call Corky, the owner, he will make it right.

Here in the west, on our windy beaches and deserts, you will see mostly their products,mine has withstood 40mph winds and after over 10 years of use still looks and performs great.

Their price is right for a quality, long lasting and durable flag pole and Mounts unlike flagpole buddy they offer many ways to mount your flag,not only on a ladder.I use the Folding Hitch mount

I also have one of their Flashing Beacons for desert use.

Also a Solar Light for Camp Ground use.

Do you think the poles and holders would work for a cell booster yagi antenna?

I like the flagpole buddy holder which clamps on to the ladder and you raise the pole and flag from the ground, no climbing or ladders required. I also made one for the house. They also have a variety of poles and lights.

I used Poles and Holders for years and love Corky's service, but I switched to Flagpole Buddy about five years ago and I don't think I'll switch back. I like their products and quality better.

Corky at Poles and Holders and Christine at Flagpole Buddy both deliver 11 out of 10 service, but I think Christine's products are better.

The ladder mount is my favorite. I can do it from the ground instead of going on the roof every time, and the mount is much stronger because it holds in two places.

All of us in camp had broken multiple Poles and Holders poles in the wind, but my Flagpole Buddy is the only one in camp that hasn't broken.

By the way, all my camp pals quit flying two flags because the wind keeps breaking the poles, but we fly our US and United Federation of Planets flags and the pole stands strong. Their two-point mount is that much stronger.

I have an older 22' Flagpole Buddy with 2 flags in gusyt winds. The lower section of my ladder is normally removed so Flagpole Buddy is mounted on the upper section. This results in the bottom mount being 6' from ground and the top about 6' higher and hence the pole is 28' high.

This type of LED light https://www.amazon.com/s?k=flagpole+led&ref=nb_sb_noss_2 is used and it adds additional windage to the pole.
