    Having sold my 5th wheel to down size, and needing a new campsite antenna mount, I came up with a receiver hitch mount.
    The steel was less than $10 at my local steel seller and I had the can of yellow paint. It sets up in seconds and all fits in my short box pickup.

    Nice job. I use something similar with a 20 ft telescoping flagpole.

    Mine is similar with a short section and a short pipe upright. Then I run the 4' fiberglass poles from the military camo netting for my height.
    Clamp on the antennae of choice with a muffler clamp.
