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: Do I need spacers ?

When I remove the drum brakes, do I also need to remove the wheel bearings? No, the studs are just in the drums. If you put a nut on the end of the stud before knocking it out, and use a block of wood, and if you're careful you won't damage the old stud and it should knock out alright. No need to g...

Re: Do I need spacers ?

Do a mock up of how your wheel is going to be. Put some pretend spacers behind the wheel to space it out until you get a nice gap between the tyre and whatever it's rubbing on. Then you know how wide your spacers have to be, and how much longer your studs are going to be. From memory I think the stu...

Based on the earlier Portafold, the Ansfold has a few design changes, the biggest being the removal of the fins from the roof. This particular caravan was the 100th Ansfold ever built, and was produced in March 1978. It has...

Re: Do I need spacers ?

Any spacers designed for Mini's should be OK, but bear in mind, you'll need to extend the studs as well. You'll have to knock them out and replace with longer ones to ensure you have enough to screw your nuts on to.
