The Big 60th Birthday Party of the Portafold (12th International Portafold & Ansfold Gathering) (i.e. 2020)

Help us set a new world record at the big 60th birthday party!

Ironically, the current record is 59 Portafolds and Ansfolds (at the 2016 Newbury Retrofestival), so we want to smash this by getting well over 70 there next year. As of last year we have a new area that will take that number of caravans and the show itself is a fantastic event that will not disappoint. There really is something for the whole family.

So put the dates 7th, 8th, 9th of August 2020 in your diary now and get those dates booked off work early. Be part of a record breaking event that will go down in history.

Show Address: Newbury Showground, Priors Court, Hermitage, Thatcham, West Berkshire, RG18 9QZ

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

I've seen some portafolds with what appears to be a weather strip and some without we're these fitted as standard and the ones without have they been added by the owners ???

Sorry, I've been laid up for a few days.

The window pelmets are a bit of an odd one. I've seen models without them dated as late as 1972. But the flat style only seem to have been used for two years from 1971 to 72. The bulged versions can be on models anywhere from 1968 through to 1975. So really there's no rhyme or reason to them, they're a very random fitment which might have been an option given to the customer at the factory. They don't feature on the optional extras list though.

My 78 Ansfold is fitted with exterior pelmets, I thought they were a standard fitment.

By the time of the Ansfolds I think they were standard fitment, all the surveys I have carried out on Ansfolds have them with 'bulged' pelmets.
