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.

My '72 Portafold

Post by sqweaka » Wed, 12 May 2010, 9:26 pm

Just picked up last week my first Portafold. It's a 72 model bought fairly local to me! About the Portafold, it's got a new set of cushions, carpets and the roof and sides have been lined. It also has a custom made sink and cooker areas that fold up and stores away in the centre when travelling. They fit on both sides as you enter. It also comes with the original 12" wheels and hubcaps which I believe are very hard to come by It also has an awning, though I haven't had that out the bag yet. The roof could do with a little TLC but it's not to bad. I did find that it was very very light on the drawbar and found a wheelbarrow full of paving blocks in the pockets at the rear! I guess the last owner thought it needed them for balance but I took them out to give it a better nose weight on the towball of the car. here some pics
