Re: Shelf/Area at the end of the van

After seeing all the folds with shelves at the end of vans at the weekend I have decided I would like to make up one out of plywood to use at the Revival. Obviously I'll measure up the length and width depending on the foot well and the distance between the sides - but can anyone recommend the minim...

Re: 1972 Portafold on FreeAds

Don't tell "Poppy" I said this - but wish I didn't have one so I could by that one! Lovely looking condition, and 1972 - just the year I wanted. Always the way.... :roll:

Re: Roof lifter

That's a brilliant idea. I can't erect the Portafold on my own and feel like a wimp with the you tube posts which pop up now and again. I can just about lift the roof - although I nearly dropped that on my Uncle's head after spending the weekend polishing the thing (my excuse for wearing out my arms...

Cushion covers

I would like a set of original cushion covers. Apparently they were originally in blue or orange, I have an offer of two large and two small covers in orange so now need four more small orange covers to complete the set. Anyone got any hanging around in relatively good nick (I appreciate they are ov...

Fire extinguishers

For those that don't have one - Lidl are selling them from Thursday at the bargain price of £6.99 - not sure if in all areas. Due to the flamable nature of fibreglass (and cars etc) - I have bought one and if you are at shows you will need to have one. Better for everyones safety - who knows - perha...

Re: First Portafold in Sweden.

Hi Steve - Just a thought - this is a Portafold, rather than an Ansfold, so it won't have the double skin will it? I've been playing with mine this weekend and went out to check this. Without the double skin I doubt there is plywood involved - fingers crossed. Best wishes - Jenny (Either my arms wil...

Re: Insurance at last!!

Don't know that I should mention this - but I took Polly away last weekend, got there, parked up, got her set up and then the husband said the fatal words - "Have you got the key?" "No - they're on the side at home..... :crazy: " But a small key on his key fob did the trick! Think I may need some ne...

Re: Our new Portafold

I was sooooo chuffed as I got an "original" awning when I bought mine - but I think mine is half the size of yours.

I don't care what they say - size does matter, especially when on holiday :D

Re: Portafolds spotted out and about

I went to Paignton for the weekend and spotted one - or rather the hubby did. I noticed a large "portable" (?) garage I was admiring, completely missing the portafold parked up next to it until it was pointed out to me (not blonde for no reason!)

Belonging to anyone on here?

Re: Booking in to campsites!

Not half as good as Melton Mobray (hopefully) :thumbup: The others will be old - but ours will also be individual... Re camp sites I believe they have to consider them caravans as, unlike a trailer tent, the sides and roof are solid - to do with their quotas and insurance. Discovered last bank holid...
