Flying a flag can show others your interests, the group you belong to, or your pride. So no matter whether it's an American flag, a military branch flag, a flag for your favorite sports team, a flag for your college alma mater, or more, you can still display flags. At the campground, this doesn't change; it just changes shape. Instead of flying your flag from your front porch or backyard, you can fly it from your RV or from a portable ground site. No matter which form you go for, you can bring your pride along with you on your trips and adventures.
How can I attach my flag to my RV?
There are a few ways to bring your flag along with you, whether it's on your rig or not. First, we have ladder RV flag mounts. These attach to the ladder on the back of your rig. These are great because they're easy to install and are easy to store for transit or in case of bad weather. They're telescoping and therefore, don't take up as much space as they could otherwise. And once these are installed, you don't need to climb the RV ladder to set up the flagpole. Just attach it to the clips and extend the flagpole.
Next up, you've got RV hitch mount flagpoles. These are good for people who might not have a camper, but do have a towing vehicle. These simply insert into your 2" hitch receiver and once they're secure, you have a flagpole mount to fly your flag. If you're wanting to show your pride at a tailgating party or in a location where bringing a camper is kind of frowned upon, you can use these easily and quickly. Just know that these are not intended for use while your vehicle is engaged or moving.
There are also RV tire flag mounts. These are perhaps the easiest flag mount to set up, since it doesn't require any brackets, straps, alterations, or other installation tools. All you need to do is place the flag mount on the ground and park your tire right over it in the center. This will hold down the mount and you can then mount the flag and flagpole. The flag and mount will be held down by the weight of your vehicle. Taking it down is pretty easy as well, since you just remove the flag and flagpole and drive off of the mount
A brief look at American flag etiquette
Flying an American flag requires more than just a place to hang it from. There are some pieces of etiquette that need to be considered as well.
The flag should never touch anything beneath it.
It should never be carried flat or horizontally, but should always be aloft and free.
It should never be displayed or stored in a way that it could be easily torn, soiled, or damaged.
If you are flying another flag on the same pole, the American flag should always be at the top and larger than or equal to the size of the other flag.
On certain days or occasions, you can fly the American flag at half mast, however, it should be raised to full height first, and then lowered.
If you want to keep the flag up all the time, then it needs to be illuminated at night.
If there is poor weather coming, make sure to lower the flag to prevent damage.
