Swimming Pool

Post by bigbird » Mon, 21 Apr 2014, 1:15 pm

Happy Easter everyone...Well what is the Easter break for apart from camping.... Opening up the Portafold after a long old winter....only to find a swimming pool of stagnant water!! :cry: We emptied out 15 gallons...Now in the process of taping the sides and replacing some hinges (four of which just cost me £30)...Oh dear, not a good start lol :crazy:
However, the good point to the start of the 'Portafold' season for us, is that after struggling to sleep in our beloved T4 camper, we've decided that where the camper goes, our 'Matilda' goes too now. We're keeping her as our designated bedroom, with an adjoining awning next to our T4, it makes a simply brilliant bungalow....lol :clap:

Dead simple, when you reply, at the bottom there's a tab that says 'Upload attachment', click that, then 'Choose File', easy! :)

I must be really stupid Matthew, for some reason, I have no tabs that say upload attachment?? Could this be a problem with my computer settings??

Nope, it's my end, for some reason it's not showing. I'll be in touch when I've found out how to fix it! :)

Jan,

I've done a few upgrades and mods on the forum, try posting something and see if you have a 'Upload picture(s)' tab at the bottom.

Then, as long as your pics are smaller than 400kb you should be able to post them direct to the forum. I've done lots of tests and it seems to work ok.

Re: portafolds and ansfolds for sale..

hi all. how sad to find your own swimming pool Ah well, I keep all my caravans indoors as matthew has seen ,, its costly as you can imagine and this in retirement brings me to the possible sale of 4 of my caravans all are portys or ansfolds, they are in various condition from very tidy and to a very early one on tube frame and as yet to be restotered.
So you will all say have you got some pictures, and no i have not as i know what they look like, ha ha but i will be getting some in the next week or so i know the pics you require will need to show general condition of both inside and out but how they are stored and moving things will take time pics will be easy to send via iphone so if youve got one thats even better i dont get on too well with emailed pics.
If your Iterested in buying from me 1] send your name on this site and a telephone number to mikewitts@aol.com i will keep the details and deal with each interested party in stirct order as i receive any interest from members if the response is poor i will sell them on ebay at auction price,

i hope this will help others to own these pactical caravans and enjoy many happy days..regards mike.
