Looking through the various owners photos, it seems most appear to be white, with a rare blue van also.
i have been rubbing down the roof on mine and it is definately a pale yellow colour, which got me thinking what colours were available new?

Any ideas?

Well according to the original brochures they started off just offering cream, then later in the production they offered white and pale blue for a small charge. But then again they did offer any colour you liked, for a charge, so they could theoretically be in any colour...
Wanted: Any original Portafold, Ansfold or Mini-Motel brochures, adverts or magazine articles.
Also, any chassis numbers for the above caravans!
