Re: Me saying Hi.

Hi, personally I would say that is far too high a price for the condition. Stay with this group. Will get a much better one off here for that price. I paid about £1400 for mine. Ready to use but have seen better for less. Think I paid a premium because it was local and available when we wanted one. ...

Re: Roof lifter

Thanks for your reply. Taking another look at the photos of the red Portafold it looks like the hook is tethered to the pole which makes sense . I’ll try that. I also made mine to sit on the A frame.

Re: Roof lifter

Hi all, hope everyone is well. I have made one of these roof winches as my wife says I’m too old to be lifting the Portafold roof !! Anyway to keep her happy. I have made one. I can put one end up easy. When it comes to putting the other end up it just seems so flimsy and precarious. I’m worried the...

11th International Gathering of Portafolds & Ansfolds (2019)

Just like to thank Mathew for all his efforts. First time at Retrofest and had a brilliant weekend despite the weather which wasn’t nearly as bad as we expected. Nice to meet other members and looking forward to meeting others next year or sooner.

Re: Window covers .

I saw a chap with a Portafold at a car show recently. He had car sun roof wind deflectors on his. They looked good. He got them from China. Might be worth a look.

Re: Wheel Bearings

Hi, I can’t tell you the size but if you knock the races out there will be a number stamped on them. You will be able to get them on line from someone like bearing boys. Hope this helps.
