1974 Portafold for sale - NOW SOLD

Post by Admin » Mon, 21 Nov 2016, 7:54 pm

Dave has found a Portafold and has put it up for sale. This is what he says about it:

1974 Portafold, has been stored in a dry garage for approximately 25 years - probably forgotten about.

The good points:

No major cracks or damage visible, with all windows intact and working.
There is a sink which forms part of the bed floor and a water pump with electrical connection - not tested.
There is also an electrical connection to plug into the 12N socket on the rear of the towing vehicle.
All 4 corner legs are working and there is a spare wheel but this will need a tyre.
There is included a bottle jack and a gas bottle rack on the draw bar.
All road lights are working as are the brakes and jockey wheel.
All of the hubs are running freely and all three wheels are original including the hub caps which are all good.

The not so good points:

Inside there are no mattresses but there are some curtains. (full foam sets available from
There are no keys for the locks for either door and tie down straps will be needed. (leather straps available from
There are possibly some fastenings missing where the side panels attach to the roof but I'm not 100% sure - please see the pictures.

Considering it's age this is in really good nick and as I said I would rather it go to someone who would appreciate it rather than break it.
If anyone would like to view, it's in Fishguard, West Wales but I'm happy to send more photos and information if anyone is interested.
I can be contacted on xxxxx xxxxxx.
Wanted: Any original Portafold, Ansfold or Mini-Motel brochures, adverts or magazine articles.
Also, any chassis numbers for the above caravans!
