The 11th International Portafold & Ansfold Gathering (i.e. 2019)

Following the huge success of the 10th International Gathering we'll be at Retrofestival again. It's a massive show now and is popular with everyone.

It's held at the Newbury Showground, Priors Court, Hermitage, Thatcham, West Berkshire, RG18 9QZ; on the weekend of the 9th, 10th & 11th of August 2019.

Don't book with the organisers, just contact me to get your pitch saved.

A frame question

Hi all, playing with the Portafold on the back of my Trike I found it’s a nightmare to reverse mainly due to the very short A frame. Has anyone ever found the need to lengthen there A frame. It would also lower the nose weight .

Never had a problem, it is short, it's just a case of adjusting your reversing style a bit. Use less steering wheel movement and it's fine.
Wanted: Any original Portafold, Ansfold or Mini-Motel brochures, adverts or magazine articles.
Also, any chassis numbers for the above caravans!
