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.

How many lockers has yours?

How many lockers has yours?

Hi all, I dunno whether this is the right forum for this one........

My mate's Ansfold, referred to on the thread about original wheels, has a different locker layout inside. There's no front centre locker at all, just a crossmember moulded into the fibreglass, the height of the lockers & about 6 or 7" long, i.e. protruding into the footwell by that much. Also, the front window is larger than the side ones, & larger than my front window.

The extra footwell length looks most useful, allowing 2 to sit at the table in real comfort without encroaching on the cooking-area in the nearside-rear corner & allowing a decently-solid mounting for the table on the front panel.

Of course, you lose locker space, always at a premium......

Our Ansfolds are just 8 chassis nos. apart! Small world or something?

I hope he'll turn up on here soon, he'll probably be peeved that I've written all about his 'van before he got a chance to do so. I wanted to ask if anyone else had this locker arrangement though. Matt says he's heard of it but I got the impression he hadn't actually seen one.

Correct, never seen one in the flesh. Although the one I've heard of in the past may turn out to be the same one your friend has just bought. Couldn't say for sure.
Wanted: Any original Portafold, Ansfold or Mini-Motel brochures, adverts or magazine articles.
Also, any chassis numbers for the above caravans!
