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.

Cushions, how many??

Cushions, how many??

Post by 53catalina » Sat, 21 Aug 2010, 9:42 pm

How many should I have?

We seem to have some long ones and some short ones. Some have obviously been renewed as the green foam (light to carry) looks quite new, and when we removed the covers off others (heavy ones) they have the original blue covers fitted.

Any advice welcome.

thanks
Dan

If you check out what the original brochures state you get with them www.portafold.co.uk/portafold_literature.html, the majority say it should be 2 long mattress cushions and 6 square seating cushions, but...

you could buy extra cushions and the depth was different depending on whether you had the 3" luxury cushions, as opposed to the 2" standard ones.

So basically, you can have as many as you need, in different depths, and as many as you can fit in it when you fold it down...

We seem to have 4 long cushions (some with two small squares in a double cover, and 3 small squares.
Only the small ones clip under the hooks on the walls, the long ones are too short, so wont stay in place when folding the sides down.
It looks like they were previously laid out all as base cushions, with no back rests, so not too comfy.
I will chat to a friend tomorrw who does upholstery to see what a new set of cushions would cost, made to the size I need, and in lightweight foam.
