Sywell Pistons and Props

Hello

Is anyone interested in the Sywell Pistons and Props event in September? It's free entry for clubs, and I know we're not exactly a club, we are a group and I'm sure we could arrange to get in as a club.

Re: Sun Canopy

In terms of keeping the heat in, we've covered every inch in veltrim, including the seat box tops (which also stops the cushions moving).

Shows this weekend

Hello we've just got back from a fabulous weekend with the Portafold. On Saturday, we were in Eastbourne at the Magnificent Motors - and there was a queue to see the Portafold! It was a bit nerve-wracking putting up the caravan in front of an audience, but it was so much fun to show how easy it was....

Re: What sort of improvements benefit a Portafold

One modification I have found very useful is the Island Leg for a table. Our portafold didn't come with the original three-legged table, and we wanted to create wrap around seating at the front, and a three-legged or standard legged table would have proved shuffling round difficult. We bought a kit ...
