The 11th International Portafold & Ansfold Gathering (i.e. 2019)

Following the huge success of the 10th International Gathering we'll be at Retrofestival again. It's a massive show now and is popular with everyone.

It's held at the Newbury Showground, Priors Court, Hermitage, Thatcham, West Berkshire, RG18 9QZ; on the weekend of the 9th, 10th & 11th of August 2019.

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

Awning rails

Does anyone know where you can buy new awning rails for the Portafold?

They are offset so that they can be screwed onto the van.

Awning rail

Hi Fraser,

I bought conventional awning-rail for mine, which you screw on through holes drilled & countersunk inside the channel itself, from a local caravan accessory shop. It's a normal stock-item for these places. It seems awning-rail is one standard size.

I've not seen the offset type you refer to though; was that a Portafold 'special part', d'you think?

We were going to have a purpose-made awning done for us, but my wife's been ill & without her wages we've sadly had to cancel it. Later, perhaps.....
