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.

My mate has one of these or somthing very similar and it was called a sherman. The ends come erect on some sort of roller system but it does not work very well and is very heavy to put up. One person could not do it on their own. Its in a bit of a state inside as all the internal partitions have ro...

It has now been dragged out of the undergrowth and pictures of the inside will be on their way - I say inside, it sort of came apart, so not sure quite what we've got yet.............

Is this a Minimotel?

A friend of mine has bought this - any clues at to what it is? Minimotel, perhaps?

You make it sound very easy! I will give it a go..........

At the moment, both halves of the door catch each oher and a previous owner has not been too careful, causing a bit of damage.

Hopefully, this will help to keep the two halves "apart"

Cheers

Hi Guys,

Gordon, I took your lead and got some off of Ebay.

I haven't actually looked at how they dismantle and go back on......

Getting Hand Brushed Gloss Off My Portafold

Good evening ladies and gents, I thought it was about time I threw my hat into the ring! :D It's a bit quiet in this forum, but I am hoping that there is a lot of technical knowledge out there............ My Portafold has at least two, if not three, layers of hand brushed gloss paint on it - it is t...
