Hello from Southwestern Ontario Canada

So I just purchased a 2018 Forest River Flagstaff Micro Lite 21 DS, which coming from a 1998 10' popup JAYCO is like moving into the Hamptons from Harlem.

I'm from South Western Ontario Canada and have visited every Southern Provincial Park in Ontario which led me to purchasing the Micro Lite travel trailer (TT) as I'll be venturing to the Northern Parks these coming years and wanted something more comfortable and provided a bit more sense of security than what you don't ever get from canvas bunk ends.

So I'm as much as a newbie as one can be when it comes to a TT so I thought it best I join a forum where experienced campers (with a similar TT) have been helping to field answers to the many questions that are asked by newbies such as me.

Welcome from the North shore of Lake Ontario near Presqu’ile Provincial Park.

We’ll be Provincial Park camping all over your area this coming June.

This is the welcome mat forum. New questions should be posted under the appropriate forum category and you’ll be amazed at the help here.

Welcome from north west WA. We camp in BC.
My first suggestion is to look at the tires on the TT and specifically note the load range. There are lots of threads on tires, but think about updating the tires to a US brand and consider a load range that is one letter greater. For example, my TT came with load range of Cs, and I now have Ds.
