The Slightly Delayed Big 60th+1 Birthday Party of the Portafold (12th International Portafold & Ansfold Gathering) (i.e. 2021)

Help us set a new world record at the huge 60th+1 birthday party!

Ironically, the current record is 59 Portafolds and Ansfolds (we set that at the 2016 Newbury Retrofestival), so we want to smash this by getting well over 70 there this time. We have a lovely 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 13th, 14th, 15th of August 2021 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 (07771544419) to get your pitch saved.

First Outing

First time out Took PF away for four days to Art in Action at Oxford and most of my friends were smitten with it and it was a source of fascination for other campers too. Throughout all the rain and thunder and lightning for three of those days I was warm, toasty and more importantly, dry inside. I ...

Re: Reluctant sale of my Portafold

Shame you are selling it. You do need to change the postage - someone will hold you to it!

Re: Stupid Question

Thanks for the info Matthew. Where we will be has a lot of security, its quite a way from the main road as well and the only people camping are staff and volunteers. The campsite isn't open to the general public. I will get it insured when I get back, just watching my pennies at the moment so will l...

Re: Stupid Question

Thanks Matthew. I have an Audi Allroad card so the ride height can go up and down too. The site, from memory is pretty level too. And you just answered my other question at the same time, if its hitched wont need extra insurance! :clap:

Stupid Question

I know this is probably a stupid question but if you put the J wheel down and legs etc., can you leave your car hitched up to trailer if you are not intending to go anywhere? I am going to an arts festival and you can pretty much park where you like, based on last year, and if I don't need to unhitc...

Re: Interior Roof Lining

Much as the gathering sounds appealing, I have lots of things going on this year with fairs and things so I will have to pass on this occasion. Decided to give the outside a clean today and found some no water shampoo and wax for £6 at the Original Factory Shop and thought I would give it a go, it's...

Re: Interior Roof Lining

Thanks for all the suggestions etc, coz not only am I new to Portafold and completely new to anything related to camping/caravaning etc. Re the lock - slapped a load of good old WD40 into the lock which released it but wasn't brilliant. Didn't have any oil apart from olive so then soaked the lock in...

Interior Roof Lining

Hello I bought a PF in January. It has an emulsion painted internal roof which is peeling pretty badly in places. Having started to gently scrape this away - most of it falling off as soon as you touch it, there is a thicker layer underneath which is has a rougher feel to it. Not sure what it is but...
