Check this fantastic film out. I think this might be the only video showing a Portafold actually being demonstrated/sold by the makers:

Although British Pathé think it's called a Portasold...

By November 1967 'Plastics (Fareham) Ltd.' had bought the rights to build them, so it must be their stand at the Caravan Exhibition, Earls Court.

That's fabulous, why isn't mine as easy to put up as that??? Probably something to do with the extra tonne of fibreglass I put on the roof....lol

Also this video, which I think is from the same show, the International Caravan Exhibition at Earls Court in November 1967.

Great videos - you've got to love the 60's.

The way he put that up, he must have found a superlight version ;-))
