Hi Guy's,

I bought my material in a fabric shop about 6 years ago.

It's like a velour material and has lasted all this time and still going strong considering the use. Well, worth the money at £3.99 a metre :D

I did re-use the foam cushions that came with the Portafold, as i said further up this page, to buy new foam was a shock for good quality foam :shock: and something i could live without as i wanted to buy ther things for the Portafold.

Hi,

Your not wrong there !!

what with the Portafold needing a bit of a tidy up and Tear drop caravan sorting that would be enough expense for anyone.

Alas, it does not end there when you own a 55 Chevy, a Anglia 105e and a Wolseley Hornet which are all a drain on the money front.

We are glutton's for punishment but, we love it !! :lol:
