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.

Aquaroll problem

Post by txfsealord » Tue, 17 Jun 2008, 8:56 pm

Hi all, I'm probably being silly, but I haven't found anywhere in the folded Ansfold to stow the Aquaroll! It's a standard 40litre which used to fit just inside the door (only just). Now, with the gas-bottles boxed on the drawbar, I've a lot of noseweight & need to put this large, light object forwards.

I'm in a hurry (what's new) 'cos I'm all behind (as usual), it's the car-club National rally this weekend & the caravan isn't ready (again). This was the situation at the 2007 National rally (nice to know some things can be relied upon not to change!)

For the temporary moment, I've taken both tyres off the Aquaroll & cut 1/2" from the front window-clamping stud on the LH side. These studs all seem longer than necessary & dig-into one's back at every opportunity, so that's something to do to them all eventually. Anyway, these machinations permit the folding of the side without distortion with the 'roll at the front of the footwell. A bit of a pain, though!

Where oh where can I stow my Aquaroll without having to de-tyre it, please? What does everyone else do? Is this item made in different sizes or shapes? With the bog in the car boot already, there isn't room there, & I'd rather not have either of these on the back seat. All helpful suggestions welcome!
