Flagpole Made in USA

Can anybody recommend a portable telescoping flagpole with a wheel mount that is actually made in the USA. I am trying to avoid products made in China. I ordered this one from Amazon:
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

The first line in the description states that it is 100% made in the United States. I received it and it states clearly on the box that it is made in China. I am returning it.

The TITAN one is, but it is $370...AMAZON has it too.

OOPS, missed the wheel mount part....

You could have a welding shop make a base for you. Piece of flat steel and piece of pipe..

So I contacted the company as I am also looking for a flag and pole made in the USA. Their flag holders are made in the US but the poles come from China and the flags come from a supplier who they think gets them from China.

I had looked at that one before. Good to know you are happy with it. I just contacted them and was informed the kit will be back in stock in 2-3 weeks.

Here is a note from their site as the OP had asked for a US made product:

Pole is made in China, Flag is made in the USA

Where did you find that note on the page listed? They have a different pole and flag set which costs less, that does have that note on the page.

My apologies - The note is on the less expensive pole...

I first ordered and received this one:

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

It stated that it was made in the USA but turned out to be made in China(clearly printed on the box). I promptly returned it and bought the one I posted. They have reworded their description to show their flag is made in the USA. Probably more than just me left them a nasty note.

I made my own from 1/2 inch PVC pipe & couplers. I just insert them (3- 4 ft length pipes) & attach to rear ladder with 2 radiator hose clamps. Works great for under $20. I pull them apart when leaving & store in the front hatch.

Try this company. They're at all the shows. We bought ours at the Cincinnati home and Garden show. We saw them last week at the Jacksonville RV show. Great quality product. They claim "Made in US" Our flagpole is about 15 years old and going strong. https://www.uncommonflagpoles.com
