Evening all, from sunnyish Old Basing RG24.
Saw Rob Hall's Wolseley & Portafold at our village show. Beer tent had been open a while, so I may have been a bit overenthusiastic. Anyway, Rob was great & we're now in the offing for a Portafold too. Nothing nice to tow it with though- just a rather battered old Toyota, as I think the MZ's a bit too lightweight...
With any luck, I'll have one to argue about with the Domestic Supervisor before the summer's done...

We're Adam and Karina, collectively known as the Ploppies. We got talking to a lady and her little dog on the saturday night of Retro Festival. She told us about Portafolds and encouraged us to visit the next day. Having come to the Portafold area we fell in love with them. It took less than 30 minutes and we wer easking around to see who was selling one. Fortunately we were told about Sharon and Neil Vaughn's Portafold . A week later we had met up with them on a Somerset campsite and bought their excellent mid 60's Portafold . We went away in it last weekend and it was fantastic.
We are about to embark on a week in Cornwall with the Portafold. We are in love with it.
When i work out how to add a picture I will.

Posting pictures is really easy now as I've allowed them to be added direct to the forum without using a third-party website.

Wanted: Any original Portafold, Ansfold or Mini-Motel brochures, adverts or magazine articles.
Also, any chassis numbers for the above caravans!

Keep at it. You won't regret getting a portafold. Simplicity at its best
