Matching Mini and Portafold

Post by Microhurtz » Thu, 16 Oct 2014, 8:22 pm

Hello everyone!
A quick snap of my Portafold, now repaired and resprayed to match my Mini. The Mini is a 1275 automatic and seems to tow the Portafold pretty well - certainly "round the block"

Finally got away in the Portafold. The Mini pulled it well; 60 mph up the M1 and 35mpg (remarkably) even with the auto box. I only get 37mpg normally.
Lots of smiles on the site in the Peak District. I found that one hinge each side on the side walls had broken but nothing fell out or off so just another job for the weekend.

Well, shiver me timbers, I'm beginning to look like a self publicist!
It's a long story but my Mini and Portafold will appear in the January printed issue of Practical Caravan magazine. Worse than that, they're in the on-line version already including the dodgy blazer I wore at the International Gathering.

I hope the printed version will have a few more pictures from the Gathering as Matthew made a load available and the mag were interested in The Gathering. Obviously.

Well, the self publicity marches on; my Portafold is in the Jan issue (3rd December) of Practical Caravan.
