    PORTAFOLD...Must be one of those "Mother Language" variations. Over here, in the U.S., we refer to those as "Pop-up" campers. Your picture, even when you click to enlarge, is rather small. What I can make out, looks good. See if you can get some pics a little larger. We would like to see more. What I can make out of the small picture, looks great. Good color match.

    Portafold is a good description for those rigs.

    Thanks for the information, Paul. I noticed on their website, they refer to it as the "Portafold Caravan." The word "Caravan," immediately made me think of the early Studebaker ads about the Studebaker offerings for truck "Caravan" bed toppers. Or, as we refer to them locally, Camper tops. Before your post, it had not occurred to me that Portafold was a brand name. I was thinking of the word merely as a descriptive term, not as a noun.

    Looks good! Did you ever get those chrome headlight rims mounted on your Commander? I guess I can't see if you do or not very well.
