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.

What colours were Portafolds available in new?

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

Looking through the various owners photos, it seems most appear to be white, with a rare blue van also.
i have been rubbing down the roof on mine and it is definately a pale yellow colour, which got me thinking what colours were available new?

Any ideas?

Well according to the original brochures they started off just offering cream, then later in the production they offered white and pale blue for a small charge. But then again they did offer any colour you liked, for a charge, so they could theoretically be in any colour...
Wanted: Any original Portafold, Ansfold or Mini-Motel brochures, adverts or magazine articles.
Also, any chassis numbers for the above caravans!
