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.

1971 Portafold for sale - NOW SOLD

Post by Admin » Wed, 05 Jun 2013, 2:04 pm

Forum member Jen (Misty Meg) is selling her 1971 Portafold. She's in Weston-super-Mare, Somerset.

It was part of the UK Classic Caravan record at Stapleford in August 2010: viewtopic.php?f=22&t=362&p=1470#p1470

Jen says:
"It's in usable condition - as I've been using it, although not pretty to look at inside. I have stripped the inside back as the previous owner had boarded it out (very 70's and not good on the weight side) and I was planning to decorate it but haven't got round to it! All the hard work has been done though.

The outside is all pretty clean and the brakes and tyres are all good as they were new when I bought it and have only used it for two summers, so about 4-5 trips out. Has the spare wheel (also with a new tyre) and comes with the original awning which I understand is quite rare. Although when I used it a couple of places tore very slightly due to the age of the material, so although it can still be used I did plan to use it as a template to make up another one.

I do know a good supplier of foam when the buyer comes to trim it out.

If you are happy to put a price on the site I'm looking for £750, as only cosmetic attention required. Please give my mobile number - xxxxx xxxxxx"
