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.

Tow Hitch and Brake

Any questions about maintenance or the restoration of your Portafold or Ansfold.

Tow Hitch and Brake

Post by 3commando » Tue, 12 Jul 2011, 12:08 pm

HI all. I have just acquired a second Porta and it is in need of an overhaul of the towing brake mechanism, after it having been stood for some time. Does anyone have any literature, or recommendations on how best to do this? The handle operation is fine, but there is no forward and backward movement on the hitch, to operate the brakes when towing. Thanks

Neville,

Have you seen the downloadable Rubery Owen instructions on the site?

They may be helpful, even if you don't have the exact same trailer chassis.
