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.

Are the beds comfy ?

Post by bivvyman » Mon, 04 Jan 2021, 2:07 pm

We are potential Portafolders . We gave up caravaning 5 years ago now looking to return . We are both in our 70’s and bed comfort is important to us . Can we ask what mattress solution would be the best for us and would plan to use the by layout as 2 singles.
Our tow vehicle is a 1969 Triumph Vitesse Saloon

Yes, they are comfy, if you have good foam obviously. If it's the original stuff I'd imagine you'll be struggling, but with modern foam you should be fine. A lot of people say they sleep better in their Portafold than they do at home, but some of that might be down to other factors! :lol:
Wanted: Any original Portafold, Ansfold or Mini-Motel brochures, adverts or magazine articles.
Also, any chassis numbers for the above caravans!
