Hello from Windsor, Ontario
Hi, guys. New guy here from Canada. My wife and I are survivors of the popup wars and we just bought a 2010 Flagstaff Microlite 18 footer to tow with our 2004 GMC Safari. I think we're going to love it. :)

:welcomesign:to the forums! Got to ask what you meant about being survivors of the popup wars.

Nothing, really. I've had a couple failed shoulder surgeries and have limited use of my right arm. With the amount of work involved in setting up a popup, a few arguments between us ensued, more my fault than hers. Popup wars is a term Connie and I use to describe it. The Microlite should cure that problem.

I couldn't help but think of the time I "lost it" with my tent while trying to roll it up to fit back into the bag. The poles stays attached but this one time it wouldn't bend down. After about 20 minutes I threw a fit.

I could image how much harder working with a popup could be on your shoulder. The Microlite should be a great trailer for you.

i was born in windsor , i escaped in 1958 but still visit often .the one thing that still impressed me is it is a very clean city with well maintained nieghbor hoods. dont know how old you are but i remember the wading pool at jackson park , now replaced, by queollete ave (i am still not sure of spelling)back in the day getting to south windsor required using howard
enough of my trip down memory lane ,i hope you enjoy all the trips in your new rig

Welcome to FRF!!!:thumbsup:
and Congrats on having the only truly capable minivan to tow a full-height conventional travel trailer, the Safari/Astro minivan.

by the way, you say you have a 18' Microlite. the only Microlite with an 18 in the model number, is the 18FBRS and it's just about 20' long.
model numbers rarely are the trailer's actual length.
