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.

Spare wheel attach ?

I was looking into this at last years national gathering as I find it a pain keep lifting the spare in & out when you are using the van (not to mention it can get messy if the ground is muddy) there are no brackets on the vans it has to be fabricated from scratch, ive seen them with the wheel facing both ways (depending on how the bracket is fabricated) i'm planning on doing this on mine in the near future I will try to post some pictures. :thumbup:

Sorry I’ve taken so long, stuff going on. Anyway, some photos of our spare wheel bracket. Just fabricated a bracket that fits our wheel/tyre combination and bolts onto the front legs of the chassis. The wheel is secured with one wheel nut through the wheel and onto a stud on the bracket.
