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.

Tow Hitch and Brake

Post by 3commando » Tue, 12 Jul 2011, 12:08 pm

HI all. I have just acquired a second Porta and it is in need of an overhaul of the towing brake mechanism, after it having been stood for some time. Does anyone have any literature, or recommendations on how best to do this? The handle operation is fine, but there is no forward and backward movement on the hitch, to operate the brakes when towing. Thanks

Neville,

Have you seen the downloadable Rubery Owen instructions on the site?

They may be helpful, even if you don't have the exact same trailer chassis.
