The Big 60th Birthday Party of the Portafold (12th International Portafold & Ansfold Gathering) (i.e. 2020)

Help us set a new world record at the big 60th birthday party!

Ironically, the current record is 59 Portafolds and Ansfolds (at the 2016 Newbury Retrofestival), so we want to smash this by getting well over 70 there next year. As of last year we have a new area that will take that number of caravans and the show itself is a fantastic event that will not disappoint. There really is something for the whole family.

So put the dates 7th, 8th, 9th of August 2020 in your diary now and get those dates booked off work early. Be part of a record breaking event that will go down in history.

Show Address: Newbury Showground, Priors Court, Hermitage, Thatcham, West Berkshire, RG18 9QZ

Don't book direct with the show organisers, just contact me to get your pitch saved.

Early round chassis Portafold for sale - NOW SOLD

Hi there, I've had the van for 4 years and it tows like a dream and has been all over the country behind my Model A Ford. It's in pretty good condition for its age with no body sag. It has had new hinge plates and hinges in the last year and I have also strengthened the side wall lips where the rubb...

My mate has one of these or somthing very similar and it was called a Sherman. The ends come erect on some sort of roller system but it does not work very well and is very heavy to put up. One person could not do it on their own. Its in a bit of a state inside as all the internal partitions have rot...

Hi Mick & Jude, I've had a couple of good weekends away so far in the van and am looking forward to getting a cooker and sink fitted later in the year. I did not get an awning with the van and it has no rear fixing for an awning unless it was free standing. Anyway it is in pretty good nick for an ea...

Trip to Billing

Here's a couple of shots of my van at Billing Aquadrome last weekend. Towed like a dream and I felt nice and snug when tucked up in bed.

Had my first run out last weekend (over 500 miles) and the van towed like it wasn't there. It went up easily and everyone was very impressed at the space inside once it was up. I was a bit cold in the middle of the night but that's because I need a better sleeping bag. I'm going to buy a little gas ...
