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.

Awning rails

Does anyone know where you can buy new awning rails for the Portafold?

They are offset so that they can be screwed onto the van.

Awning rail

Hi Fraser,

I bought conventional awning-rail for mine, which you screw on through holes drilled & countersunk inside the channel itself, from a local caravan accessory shop. It's a normal stock-item for these places. It seems awning-rail is one standard size.

I've not seen the offset type you refer to though; was that a Portafold 'special part', d'you think?

We were going to have a purpose-made awning done for us, but my wife's been ill & without her wages we've sadly had to cancel it. Later, perhaps.....
