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: Emulsion on inside of roof

We have veltrimed our roof with no problems. Haven't noticed any weight difference & the high heat adhesive is good up to 120C! Should be ok in our British summers!
The roof shuts down as well as it always did.
No condensation & really cosy.

Re: Veltrim?

We have done ours in Veltrim. Wheat colour. It was fairly easy to do. It stretches & can be hammered (gently) into corners. It stops any condensation & is really cosy! It was our first attempt & came out pretty well we think. It is definitely a two, if not three person job though. You will need at l...

It's almost finished!

Well, having seen a portafold at Blenheim Palace car show last August bank holiday & instantly loving it we set about trying to find one. Months later we won our Portafold "Leaky" (more on that later! :roll: ) & set off to deepest darkest Wales to pick it up. This is how it looked when we got it hom...

Re: Insurance

:D Warning taken!!
We have a small trailer we could tow, I'll leave the Portafold to the bigger van.

We're off on our first trip next week, very exciting & a little bit worried. Haven't used my splitty to tow the Portafold yet. Might be the slowest trip we've ever had! :oops:

Re: Insurance

I joined the camping & caravan club who do insurance. Paid £45 per year for an agreed value of 2k.

Big bird, have you got a tow bar on your Smart car? I'm tempted to tow the Portafold with mine!
