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 huge 60th birthday party!

Ironically, the current record is 59 Portafolds and Ansfolds (we set that at the 2016 Newbury Retrofestival), so we want to smash this by getting well over 70 there this 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 (07771544419) to get your pitch saved.

Just saying Hello really as we have just bought our Portafold at the beginning of the year and are looking forward using it.

Had to put a towbar on our 14 year old Vauxhall Corsa and it towed like a dream and is the exact width of the car, brilliant, now I have made a towbar (well not me) for my vintage VW Split Screen Van, and looking forward to touring to VW Shows and showing the Portafold.

Can anybody tell us what year its from.
It's got the square "A"-frame and chassis # 73273

Thanks.

Alex.

It's a 1973 model.

The most popular year according to the people who have contacted me so far!

Hi Alex,
Your camper looks lovely in mauve.As well as the wolesley hornet i own, i also have a ford Anglia which i have owned for nearly 16 years now and that is mauve with a pearl coat roof so, it's good to know other people love the same colour :D.I don't tow our portafold behind either of my cars.

Thanks.

Was told when we bought it that the portafold came from the early 60's, but hey 1973 will do for me... :)

Mauve, you hit the nail on its head, people been telling me its pink, and I strongly disagree. ;)

Will be a strange exerience towing the Portafold behind the Camper, as its not going fast as it is, but hupfully we'll be okay.

Cheers. 8)
