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.

Okay, here we go,

Righty ho, I do still have the chassis, it's my dads trailer now. When I get a chance I'll try to find the chassis number - i've seen where it should be but it's full of paint so it will take a while to get to it!

Like I said, is it really worth restoring? Wouldn't be for a couple of years as I've not got the time or the money at the moment...

Yes, get it restored.

Buy a power sander, take off the topcoat of peeling paint, and give it a good prime, then a gloss topcoat.
Running gear is very simple to look after, and interior you can do as and when.
If the hinges are all free then thats a bonus.

good luck, and keep us upto date with progress.

I would think that it would be a great personal achievement and bring a lot of satisfaction to get this one back on the road. Please keep us informed, and good luck.
