      Suggestion #1. Install a strong eye-bolt somewhere convenient at about
      neck height on the RV. Park the RV so that the eye-bolt is about 12
      feet away from a tree, telephone pole, or something strong. Now you
      don't have to find trees in the right spacing, you create the spacing.

      I have an inexpensive stand which several people have built and some
      have improved upon. Ed Speer has directions for a steel pipe stand
      which I would recommend for use in a traveling RV since it takes up less
      space when storing.
