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.

"original" awning?

You mention that's an "original" - I'm really pleased to hear that is the case as I bought a Portafold a few months ago and mine looks like that!

They look like Mini ones, with Mini or Reliant trims.

my portafold for sale

Post by tigermart » Tue, 13 Oct 2009, 5:52 pm

I know it is an original awning as it is exactly the same as the one in the original Portafold brochure. As for the wheels I do bot know their origin. I was told by the guy I bought the van from that they were original as well. But I could be wrong and they could indeed be from a mini or Ferrari GTO!

lol, thanks very much, I'm still trying to get some that fit mine, and it's very difficult. By the way, good luck with the sale, it's a lovely Portafold! :D

Hubcaps again!

Post by txfsealord » Tue, 13 Oct 2009, 7:27 pm

Those are early Mini hubcaps, made of stainless steel with integral embellisher rims. They're fine on the early short hubs but they aren't deep enough for the long ones unless wheel-spacers are used & this compromises the wheelstuds' strength.

Yes it is a lovely van. I wish ours looked like that, & had that awning.....
