The 11th International Portafold & Ansfold Gathering (i.e. 2019)

Following the huge success of the 10th International Gathering we'll be at Retrofestival again. It's a massive show now and is popular with everyone.

It's held at the Newbury Showground, Priors Court, Hermitage, Thatcham, West Berkshire, RG18 9QZ; on the weekend of the 9th, 10th & 11th of August 2019.

Don't book with the organisers, just contact me to get your pitch saved.


Any talk that's not covered by the other forums.

Has anyone found a mixture of different coloured originals panels?

I've mentioned elsewhere that I've had the paint stripped off my Portafold by Soda-blasting - well, its revealed that the 'hull' and roof are cream, but the 4 sides, which appear never to have been painted, are white.

Replacements? Colour-coding? Customising option from the manufacturer?

I've learnt to 'never say never' when it comes to Portafolds. I know my roof is certainly a lighter shade than the rest of my body (which is the yellow/cream colour) but that's just down to the sun bleaching it. A good buff with T-Cut and then car polish has done wonders for getting some of the yellow back into it though.
Wanted: Any original Portafold, Ansfold or Mini-Motel brochures, adverts or magazine articles.
Also, any chassis numbers for the above caravans!
