Start with a closet flange (toilet) and build up using 4" PVC. This flange lets you use tent pegs to secure it to the ground. Prime and glue flange to first tube. If you want a place to hang a sign, use a 4" T with the small side for 2" pvc . Glue this in as well. Drill a 2" x 18-20" piece of PVC for and add cup hooks and then glue on an end cap to the tube. Continue up from the open end of the 4" T with 4" PVC and glue on a reducer bushing to fit a carriage lamp. Thread the cord through the PVC and out the bottom of the flange. Secure the lamp with screws. Attach an extension cord with a light sensor and you're done. 6 foot total height is about right for RV storage, and you can "break" the tubes at the T.
