Yes, it's the elevating part of te roof I meant. So, yours only have a mosquito net. I couldn't see that clearly if it was a net or a rain canvas.

This is what I've got in the back of my mind. It's a Freedom Microlight, as the Niewiadów n126 is called in the UK, with a rain cover for the elevating part of the roof

Javi, we're also in Spain and Mrs. is Spanish.

Even tough it's pretty warm in southern Spain during the winter, it becomes a bit chilly when the sun goes down. Then it's nice to have a "rain-cover" for the elevated part of the roof, so one can keep the roof elevated and still keep it warm and comfortable when it's a bit colder outside. We need the roof to be elevated to be able stand up straight. It's tiring for the back to cook in the caravan without being to stand up straight.

I found another thread called "RVing in Europe" where I'll post photos etc. showing what it's looked like when I've been touring around Europe for more then 10 years.

My family has some Swedish background and my father-in-Law spoke GamlaSvensk, as he left there in about 1912. I have visited Gotenburg and the W. coast as well as Stockholm and up to Jokk Mokk (?) above the Arctic Circle. Beautiful in summer ! !
You mentioned starting a European Camping Thread ; well, perhaps this is it ! We should encourage all of our caravan friends to travel as far as possible , meeting new friends and forging friendships in other countries. Our politicians do not seem to be capable of doing that. Let's encourage it !
I will try to find some of my photos of my visits to the area just south of you: Halmstad, Hesselholm, Bostad, Melbystrand. A friend lives in that area and we have explored the area by motorcycle and his WWII U.S. army Jeep. I hope you will keep us up to date on your travels, and send more photos so we can form a like-minded group who is interested in camping in Europe as well as the US. Have you seen the Swedish camper magazine HJULHUSET ? I met one of the contributors at a Vintage Trailer Campout here in the US, I think it was Per-Erik from Halmstad. Are you now in Spain, as it is winter ? Drive safely and Happy Trails. David and Julie, from Fresno and Sonora, Calif.
David, it's interesting to hear that your fahter-in-law came from Sweden about 1912. My grandmother had five siblings that emigrated to the US about the same time. I reconnected with some of my relatives, who lives in Pittburg PA, in the late 80's. I stayed with them for about four months during the winter and spring of 1990.

Yes, Halmstad is just 100 km from where my house is located in Sweden. I've spent a bit of time in Halmstad when I worked as an engineer in the Army. Our main field for shooting with anti-aircraft guns was located at the northern end of the long beach at Tylösand, which is one of the best beaches in Sweden.
