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.

Table legs

Post by The Gomersalls » Mon, 20 Oct 2014, 10:25 pm

Hi, we have a table with our Portafold which came with a selection of dansette style legs but none of them are the correct height to use the table in the van.

Can anyone advise us what length the legs should be, and has anyone found suitable replacements?

Thanks

Marie & John

If you have the original three legged table, you should have one long and two short legs. The long one goes on the floor, the two short sit into small holes in the edge of the locker, each side of the walkway.

You can also use four long legs on an original sink unit, so it can be put up in the awning outside.

Not come across any replacement legs or fittings yet unfortunately.

Thanks for the reply, our table unfortunately cant have the original legs as it has a set of short ones (about 5 inch) which make it too low to get your knees under when resting on the edges, and if you add one of the long ones it then sits at a strange lopsided angle. They all have the flexible feet too which I don't think original ones have from the photos we have seen, hence it would be good if we can find out what size they should be.

Bad time of year to ask I'm afraid, mine's away for the winter now, but I should be opening it up again at some point to do a few jobs. When I do I'll measure the legs for you.

Hi, on mine, the 2 short legs are 11 inches long and the long one is 23 inches - I think that they are original.
Cheers
