The Slightly Delayed Big 60th+1 Birthday Party of the Portafold (12th International Portafold & Ansfold Gathering) (i.e. 2021)

Help us set a new world record at the huge 60th+1 birthday party!

Ironically, the current record is 59 Portafolds and Ansfolds (we set that at the 2016 Newbury Retrofestival), so we want to smash this by getting well over 70 there this time. We have a lovely 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 13th, 14th, 15th of August 2021 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 (07771544419) to get your pitch saved.

Re: Looking for a Mini-Motel

I think you've nailed it Matthew. In my own experience of vintage two-wheelers, there were always minor production changes that, with a handful of exceptions where notification needed to be given to the dealer network, were almost never publicly announced. For example, replacing metal fuel taps, pet...

Re: Looking for a Mini-Motel

They do mention in the video that it's built in Emsworth, Hampshire; which matches with one of the three(!) addresses that were on the Mini-Motel adverts. That's why I ended up here. :) It is always possible that the video showed a one-off version of the Mini-Motel. In my experience of Lammies, tha...

Re: Looking for a Mini-Motel

Happy to be corrected. :thumbup: I did see the original thread on this subject, btw. Awesome detective work. I think the video actually give the county location of the caravan manufacturer, which is how I ended up on this site

Re: Looking for a Mini-Motel

Hi John, no I didn't find one. I suspect it was a stunt, but a good one. Lambretta Concessionaires were pretty good at them in the 50s and 60s. But in any event these weren't meant to be towed by scooters but by a small car. I very much doubt if they were imported into the US.

Looking for a Mini-Motel

Hiya, if anyone has a spare Mini-Motel they don't need any more I'd love to take it off your hands. :D

More seriously, I've been looking for one for ages. I'm hoping to emulate this video:
