Portafold for sale

Post by CAB » Sun, 02 Oct 2011, 10:11 am

The Portafold that's in a post on the discussion board titled "told you it was in bad condition"...


I am going to have to re-home!

It is in bad condition. I am in no dreamworld about that, the inside polystyrene stuff has peeled off, but the roof seems in one piece that i can see, the floor is now giving way in the middle - but maybe something can be done, the windows (two side ones I can see are intact - (when hedge has died back will see the back one) I believe the side panels are ok, but there is no chassis, (we really have to keep the chassis as it is now a trailer that we use!). I can't see all of the inside at the moment as it's being used for storage, and now aware on the joints its not 100% water tight no more. (it's been erected for over 27 years)

Truth of the matter is I love this old thing, but due to some drastic life changes I need the land it stands on. I played in this as a child and my most fondist childhood memories are of this thing. I am also though not diluded and it will most likely be used as a spare roof, or something. But all I want is it to do some good. (couldn't stand it going to landfill)

(oh and if anyone found it possible to do up and ever wanted to sell it - omg id love first refusal)

Anyways, with a tear in my eye and a massive heavy heart, this well loved piece of my history is up for re-homing, I would like "something" for it... as I know its roof and side panels being intact goes along way. but will have to be taken away on a trailer or something, like i said, no chassis.

Would love also to know whatever happends to it. I was hoping to do it up myself, but now life has dealt some different cards and I need it gone as i'm never going to get around to giving it the love it deserves!

Thanks for looking.

I am in Dereham, Norfolk.
My email address is If you are interested please subject email "Interested in Portafold" as new mails get sent to junk and I can retrieve them easier if I know what they are in advance.

Thankyou. CAB
